Podcasting from Kumagaya-city where we performed our first international performance.
This week we visited Tokyo Tower, Ginza shopping district, the Hei Jinja shrine and met the folks from Japanese Pod 101 http://www.japanesepod101.com in Tokyo.
We also took a boat ride down Arakawa river and visited Edo Wonderland - a living history park with costumed characters and live theatrical performances.
This week we bring you "Toyama no Kin-san" a Robin Hood type story that we saw performed at Edo Wonderland.

(Our apologies for the inferior sound quality on this podcast but our sound equipment is back in the U.S.)

Happy Listening,
Dennis, Kimberly and Zephyr

Great job! We had several lessons in this one, and of course we had to read \"Robin Hood\" afterward. Who\'d have guessed that \"Tokyo\" should be pronounced with two syllables instead of three? Or am I the only person who didn\'t know? Thanks for keeping us entertained as always, even from around the world.
