I should be at most of the Kanto branch shows. Now that I've typed this I'm realizing it's time to start the process of getting everyone show ready. It's still damn hot out here, over 30 degrees celsius.


  1. It's been brutally hot in Italy. Coming from a place in the US to a Mediterranean country has really made me miss snow and cold weather. The dogs miss it too!

  2. We'll be going to some of the Tohoku branch shows. Mostly hoping to see some more Shikoku than last year, but I have a suspicion that we would have to go south to see better representation.

    1. Yes, to see more Shikoku you'll have to come as far down as Ibaragi, and maybe some in Tochigi.

    2. That's what I was afraid of, though Ibaragi and Tochigi could be doable, about a 7 hour drive. We were actually planning on going there this spring. We planned on going to the Ryounou Kenkyuukai, but I didn't realize that when I signed up that last year's date and location were still posted, whoops. So right before we were to leave, I pulled the address and saw it was in Shimane. Going to one in Shikoku would have been closer! Since the car and dog were already packed up we ended up going north on an impromptu trip to Mutsu and camped in the Yagen Valley. Still turned out to be a great experience and we confirmed Ajax had grown out of his car sickness.
