Have you driven in Japan? I’ve had a Japanese license since I switched my Canadian license for it a few years ago, and when I drive, I rent a car. Usually, we rent a car to go to Costco. I made this video and discuss what it’s like to drive in Japan.
So, have you driven in Japan?
Two weeks ago, on August 1st, my family went to the 36th annual Isuzu Fujisawa Festival at the Isuzu truck factory in Fujisawa. Since it was only 20 minutes away from us on foot, it was a pretty easy decision to go to it.
The festival featured a lot of food, taiko drums, singing, festival games, mikoshi (portable shrine), and fireworks. As you’ll see later in the video below, we didn’t stay for the fireworks, but we did see some. The video features mostly the taiko performance, which is nice to watch. The girl dancing to the taiko music is my daughter. It was her first time seeing anything like this, and she really loved it.
If you’ve watched the video already, you’ll notice that we had a thunderstorm. It was actually quite intense with a lot of lightning. But I love a good thunderstorm.
It’s time for another taste test! This time, I tried out Wilkinson Mixing Blood Orange. I wasn’t sure what to expect. Maybe sweet, but that wasn’t to be. It wasn’t sweet at all. Please watch the video.
Have you tried this drink?

Typhoon Halong, or Typhoon #11, as it’s known in Japan, passed over Honshu yesterday. It missed the Kanto region, but that didn’t mean it was nice a sunny. The rain was heavy and the wind was strong. In fact, the rain was a bit strange in the morning. Watch this video where I describe what the weather was like.
What was your typhoon experience like?
