More Japan Photos from Food Fashionista…

As many of you know, a massive 8.9 earthquake struck Japan earlier today. When devastation like this occurs, we are reminded of the enormous power of Mother Nature and the fragility of life. Please pray for the people of Japan and the world during this sensitive time. 

These photos below are from a previous post I shared on my home country. If you would like to make a contribution to the relief efforts, you can donate to the Salvation Army or Red Cross below. Every donation makes a huge difference.

Hope you enjoy these colorful images I took on one of my last visits to Tokyo and Yokohama. I'm sure they'll put a smile on your face and brighten up your Monday after the long Holiday weekend…
