Snapshots from Japan

Stone lanterns at Katsuo-ji (Mino)
We've been in Japan for three weeks now--half way through Brian's sabbatical as a Visiting Professor at Osaka University's Toyonaka Campus. I've posted some traditional touristy photos to my Instagram account, but there are just too many images I want to remember, so I decided to post them here as well.

Wonderful photos! My husband served in the Osaka Mission years ago, and our oldest son served in Tokyo. We were able to go pick our son up after his mission and see some of the lovely places in Japan.
