My relatives

The very adorable boy in the first photo is my little cousin kengo. We had dinner with my aunt's relatives on our last night in Kagoshima. In the second photo, from left to right is (top row) my uncle, my cousin kosuke who's a year younger than me, my mother, me, my sis. bottom row is my aunt's aunt, my aunt, my aunt's father, my brother, and finally right in front is kosuke's brother kengo. They are a close-knit family who get along really well. I'm astounded at how well my uncle has integrated himself into Japanese society. He talks and looks like a Japanese! He even smokes, and it's sort of in their culture for working men to smoke.
