Internationalisation

On the JET program, we hear over and over again about internationalisation. It is a big word. The emphasis is on bringing the rest of the world to Japan. I like to think that I do my part by taking Japan to the rest of the world as well...
A very serious AJ at the recent 'Osaka Festival' in Melbourne. I sent the yukata pattern to his Mum. She whipped it up in a flash and a bit of help from a Japanese friend.Milla being very 'unJapanese' in her pink yukata. Look at that puku (tummy)!

Major puku alert! I webcammed with Mum and Demi-chan on Sunday, her little summer clothes are so cute and her (not so little) puku was in full glory. I wonder if Uniqlo will bring out new yukatas this summer?

Like the tongue accompanying the belly. Together with the yukata, it's quite a blend of culture.
