Archer on Japan

I liked Japan. Our friends Ayla and Alyssa were with us. Ayla is the tall one in this picture of us on the subway in Tokyo. She is 12 years old. We took the subway a lot in Tokyo.

This is me petting an owl we saw on the street in Tokyo. We asked our mom if we could go into the Owl Cafe. She said yes, but she did not go inside with us. My dad went with us and we took pictures of the owls.

This is one of the owls that was inside. There was a Great Horned Owl and there were ducks, hamsters, and a parrott. It was fun because we got to pet lots of animals.


This was my favorite meal in Japan. They gave us raw meat and we got to cook it! It taught me how to cook steak and chicken. It was really fun because we saw the waiter take a huge steak and put it on the fire and cook it. Then they cut it into pieces with scissors and put the pieces on a plate. It was delicious.


This is an awesome helmet from the Samurai Museum. I like the museum, we got to hold real swords and dress up like a Samurai. We also got to use a real spear too!


This is me with my mom and my brother. We were in the gardens of a temple called Tenryu-ji in Kyoto. My mom says it was a buddhist temple first built is 1339. We saw lots of temples in Kyoto. We had to take our shoes off to go inside the temples. We even had to take our shoes off to go in some restaurants!

Japan was really awesome.

Coconut water and the Shanghai Tower 

We went to Simply Thai for lunch and we got fresh coconut water. It tasted weird, my brothers and I did not like it. My dad liked it. After lunch we walked to Shanghai Tower. It’s the second tallest building in the world. We went up to the 118th floor in super fast elevator. It goes 18 km per hour. I took a lot of pictures from the top.

This is the view from the Shanghai Tower.

Thank you for reading this.🙂😊

Buddha & Caterpiller

I saw this Reclining Buddha yesterday. I prayed to it. I saw people lighting incense, then they put it above their head and bowed to practice their religion. I liked it.

This is a baby worm Grayson found on his mint leaf. We were at a Thai restaurant. After I held it for a while, I brought it outside and put it on a leaf. The Thai food was so good. 😊
