I’m chaperoning my 11 year old daughter to the 2005 Children’s World Summit for the Environment in Toyohashi City and Toyota City in Aichi Prefecture in Japan. I could go on here about how irritating the indoctrination of the young with all sorts of ridiculous ideas about the environment is. But I guess its not the place for it – much less my views on solving the world’s problems with children’s summits.
In any event, we’re arriving in Tokyo on the night of Friday 22nd July and heading down to Aichi Prefecture on Sunday. If any Troppodilians have any suggestions as to where to stay, what to do and where to go with an eleven year old girl, I’d be grateful. (Disneyland is ‘locked in’ as they say on the tele).
I’ve also had a wander round the English speaking Japanese blogosphere to see what was happening there, but couldn’t find anything especially memorable. If any readers can recommend good English speaking Japanese blog sites I’d be grateful. Maybe someone’s reading this in Japan right now? Fancy catching up with NG and his daughter Anna for afternoon tea?
