Hello, Tokyo!

By the time you read this, I’ll be on a plane to Tokyo!

My son and I are heading over together–him for a job interview and me for a research trip–while my husband stays home and holds down the fort. (I’m lucky to have a guy like that!) I’ve got my trusty roller bag:

and my laptop, and in addition to research for the next Hiro Hattori novel (and some preliminary work for the secret project I hope to announce very soon) I’m hoping to visit several–if not all–of the Christmas Markets going on in Japan between now and my return to the United States on December 25.

Stay tuned for lots of fun photos and stories in the days to come!
