These colorful berries seem to be in season right now. I’ve seen them in a few places around Miyano; these ones are right in my backyard! I grabbed a few shots while Lou (another exchange student here from Bishop’s) grabbed his glasses. We were doing head shots for him to send off to his JLPT exam.
Unfortunately I arrived too late to register, but most of the western exchange students who were here last semester are preparing to write it now. It happens in a month or so. So, be forewarned! If you’re only coming for the spring/summer (like me) and want to write the JLPT, get your paperwork in beforehand!
