Oriental White Stork
Takoyaki (soup-style octopus balls)
Kobe Port Tower, Mt Rokko. My house is on Nagamineyama, a mountain range very close to Rokko.
My mom finally sent me a set of Gotochi cards from Hyogo Prefecture (my nabes). You can only buy these at local post offices and I've been curious about them for about a year. I didn't have time to look for them when I was home last October. But these are very cool shape postcards. Next time I go home, I'm going to visit local post offices so I can collect cards from those prefectures.
