We just found out yesterday that from today, December 1st, we are again able to send packages weighing over 1 lb (453 grams) to the United States via airmail!!! There might be a slight delay but basically all is back to normal!
Canal City, a shopping mall in Fukuoka (near us), is all lit up for Christmas. Click on the link and it will take you to a panoramic view...it is stunning! You can use click on the buttons to see the top or bottom or either side of the view. Enjoy!
