Dolphins are thrilling animals, whether wild or tame. How can anyone not be enchanted by them? The three dolphins at Kyoto aquarium put on a great show for spectators the day I was there. They jumped so high above the pool they seemed to be flying, or maybe levitating. I clapped and cheered with the kids, and was sorry when the entertainment ended, even though I was really looking forward to checking out the jellyfish!

I came to Japan in 2003 to teach English. I lived in Shiga prefecture for one year, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Kyoto for nine years, then moved to Machida, Tokyo in 2014 after meeting my Japanese partner. I love to take photos, and my Japan in Pictures Facebook page has some 40,000 followers. I have been the Regional Partner for Yamanashi Prefecture since 2014. I am enjoying exploring the prefectures around Tokyo (I like to get off the beaten track), and I hope the photos and stories I share will encourage more people to discover this wonderful country.
