Yesterday, while preparing Brad’s classroom for the first day of school, we had our first earthquake experience. We were sitting down and suddenly heard a low, very quiet rumble. Then, we felt the floor move under us and watched as everything hanging on the ceiling started to shake. It lasted less than 10 seconds and when it was over, we weren’t even sure it was actually an earthquake. All we knew is that we had never felt the floor move that way. When we arrived back at our hotel, we found this link.

It was a mild first experience- let’s hope it stays that way!

There was another interesting story from Tokyo today… A monkey at the train station! Click here to read more. There’s never a boring moment here in Tokyo!
