View faye_soleil's Instagram Today for my birthday my friend shared one of her very favorite places with me. The Farm is a gardening shop, several greenhouses, outdoor promenade, flower shop, and cafe all at the foot of the mountains. It's a plant lover's paradise! This daffodil bouquet was resting nonchalantly on a bench by the café.

View faye_soleil's Instagram Old shrine, new find. Met a friend, buzzed by all the crowds at the bottom of the mountain and broke free of the bright torii gate trail to explore Mount Inari. We found this battered, old gate on a less tread path in the forest.

View faye_soleil's Instagram My Japanese coworkers in one of the preschools where I teach surprised me with an early birthday celebration today! Even though we struggle with the language barrier often, I love them to pieces and I think it's mutual :) I feel so blessed to be surrounded by such kind, thoughtful people ♡

View faye_soleil's Instagram One of the performers and I at the Goou setsubun festival. Note the fabulous sequins beneath his fabulous blue kimono. Between his singing and acting he called me out of the crowd (I'm a bit taller and blonder than the other locals) and asked me a few questions, which thankfully I was mostly able to understand and answer. Inevitably "What country are you from?" turned into "Ohh, Trump ne?" with the entire crowd looking to see me and my reaction. I was allowed to take a picture with him afterwards as recompense for my public humiliation!

Associations are powerful. Any other Americans encountering this abroad? How do you react?

View faye_soleil's Instagram By far my favorite thing about the setsubun festivals I attended this year was watching parents give their babies to the oni and then taking pictures of them screaming their heads off!

Setsubun is the first day of Spring in the old Japanese calendar. Mom or Dad can don an おに oni mask and let the kids throw soy beans at them, or you can go to a shrine festival and see it acted out.
