Our House, In the Middle of the Street
Is there a song with those lyrics?? Tokyo is one of the most populous cities in the entire world, and our family lives right in the center of it, within walking-minutes of the most popular attractions. However, another attractive thing about Tokyo is its quiet-ness. Our street is quiet. Our kids regularly play outside in the street with the neighbors. Here are a few photos of the house (with a random Japanese guy near it…), the basketball hoop that we share with the neighbors at the end of the street, and then a picture of some chalk drawings that Sydney and her girlfriends did on the street as they played, but they are partially covered by cherry blossoms from the neighbor’s tree. The kids, from a young age, can play outside alone; it’s that safe and easy here. Tokyo is a wonderful city in which to bring up children.
