"Sunny, windy day. Snowed off & on all day but not enough to keep wash from drying."

"Went with Francis Bray & Winnie Harbin to see a Japanese home made for western living. Eurasian (Chinese) woman owned the house. Red carpets, blond furniture. Much bamboo. Guest house was tatami. Paid 50 yen for our coffee as usual. After lunch walked up river with children to gather stones. Light snow on but gone by noon."
