Listen with me...

...to this beautiful music from the movie Totoro. It's by Joe Hisaishi.

So, so peaceful with a cup of chamomile tea.


  1. Jeanne,
    Could you give me suggestions for a few Japanese films or cartoons that would be appropriate for a six year old? I wouldn't have a clue where to start.

  2. Certainly try My Neighbor Totoro. Or possibly Ponyo as an alternative. Let me know what you think - they're very different from English cartoons!

  3. Jeanne,
    We loved Tortoro! The kids have watched it once a day for the past week. They watched it once in English to get the story line, then in Japanese ever since. Thank you!


I'd love you to leave me a message. Tell me what you like - and what you don't. Just remember that this is what we do in our family - it doesn't have to be what you do in yours...
