Congratulations to Hugh Janus! You did it! You got married!
Hearing this news the other day filled me with happiness. Hugh is one of the good guys, I'm so very fond of him and I know he's overcome a lot of obstacles to find the joy he now has in his life.

Congratulations, love and all good wishes to you both!

Thank you all! We both really appreciate your kind words and wishes. Very exciting and busy days for us.

We were married across the street from our new apartment, at Desk #1, Hiroshima Eastern Ward Office by an enthusiastic and helpful young bureaucrat, who, after checking our paperwork for the proverbial dotted i's and crossed t's, declared us husband and wife at 10:00 am on Thursday, July 31. Then after spending a couple hours taking care of my wife's name change and sundry paperwork, we went home and traded rings and then walked to Atago-jinja, the local shrine, to register our banns with the eternal by bowing and clapping and praying for happiness and a long life together.

After lunch we headed over to have a new family name stamp (hanko or inkan) made, for use on future official documents. After we returned home I built some shelves for our laundry room.

Our balcony looks out across the shinkansen tracks at Mazda Stadium, home of the Hiroshima Toyo Carp baseball team. We can hear the crowd, but the bullet train is silent. The Carp lost to the Chunichi Dragons, but we had a nice tome listening to the excitement while we ate dinner.

Our wedding day was beautiful, with clear skies and cloud pillows. What a way to start our future! We've both been smiling ever since and look forward to the rest of our lives together.

I'm assuming from this that you're settling in Japan. I'll miss seeing you when I'm in New York.
posted by Senyar 02 August | 01:40
Yup, settling here. You're always welcome to come visit us in Hiroshima, though. We live near tons of hotels and there's lots to see and do here. Of course, it's a pricey ticket, a long plane ride, and a bewildering destination, but we'd love to see you.

Here's the view from our apartment balcony, replete with baseball fans and bullet trains:

Such wonderful news. Much happiness to you both.

Don't throw those offers to come visit out lightly... they may well be taken up :)
