I lived in Japan from 1984 to 1985. Well it was the very end of 1985. When school was out for Christmas, thats when we came back home. My Father, Rick, worked for Ford Motor Company and I knew all the men that created the Ford Probe. Thats why we went to Japan. During our visit we, my family, went to China and Korea too. One of the best parts is on the way home we went to Hawaii.

Japan was fun but I was 12 and 13. Well we had as much fun as Americans could have in Hiroshima. See we were what you call "pioneers." Things were new for us and for them and boy do I have stories to tell. :) My parents and I were the only Americans that showed their face on the anniversary, August 6th, of the bombing. At night, they make paper lanterns and put them in the water. This is to symbolize one lantern per person that died. It was very quiet and pretty at the same time.

Here are some pictures of us there. My sister, Leslie, was not with us. She went to school in Kobe while I went to school in Hiroshima and stayed with my parents. Leslie is three years older than me and was to old to attend my school. My school went to 8th grade and she was in 10th.

I hope you enjoy these pictures and my GSD.

Hi Lisa, When I try to download the Japan file, it keeps going to the Love Frame file so there may be a mistake in the link.
Thanks, Jamie S
