Pray for me

Photo of a Japanese prayer tablet, taken in Kyoto.

I'm going to try to start to post a photo a day.

Thanks Serena!

Hi Syahiran - thanks for dropping by. I hope you get the chance to come to Japan one day, it's an amazing place. You'd actually be surprised how easy it can be to live in Japan without speaking a lot of the language. Well, a lot of the time at least. Mind you, as with living anywhere in the world, I think you get so much more out of it (and can contribute as well of course)if you make the effort of learning the language.

It's nice photo:D

I'm a Japanese and live in Aichi.
By the way, it's difficult to live in Japan without using Japanese, isn't it?
I wish it'll come the day that you can use Japanese naturally:)

Hey Yumigon - It's good to "meet" another Aichi-jin. Sometimes it can get quite hard not speaking Japanese, but surprisingly, at times it's quite easy. This was a photo that I took, but I didn't write the prayer, I can speak some Japanese so it makes life easier.
