Don't worry Maeku - we've got room in our closet. They can't find you there. Just stay inside until I tell you it's safe to come out.

When I was in high school I spent a couple summers working with my uncle in Tokyo for his masonry business (specializing in setting up all those blocks that every house puts on their border with the street), so it's sad seeing him lose his business because his part-time bookkeeper had been siphoning tons of money out of this business all these years until the well ran dry, and now his company can't pay any of its bills. People would always do a double-take because construction trucks at that time would usually have a Japanese driver and two Iranian workers crammed into the front, so they'd never expect a (half) American-looking guy doing work that's usually done by undocumented foreigners.

About my only memory of summers there are from the early to mid-fifties and going hiking with my grandfather. Don't really recall where we went, but we'd hop on a train, then debark and start walking up a mountain, then hang out and enjoy the view, eat some sorta bento, then wander back downhill to the train and back to Kobe. Thanks for the memory-jog, and many thanks, Ojiisan, for taking this young haafu 'under your wing' to see things I know I wouldn't have seen on my own!
