Women’s World Cup Final−Japan vs America on July 17th,


This morning around 4:30, my husband was awake and anxiously watching the semifinal game against Sweden. We were happy that Japan could win.
Our team is called "nadeshiko Japan".  I'm not sure "nadeshiko" means "maiden pink or Deptford pink".  There is a phrase "Yamato-nadeshi-ko" and it implies Japanese women's traditional beauty and kindness. "Yamato" is the old way of calling our country's dynasty.
Well, all the Japanese will get excited to see the game!!!  Haha, since I have many friends in America, I'm not sure which team to root for.

         It took me a while to do it, but happy being able to create my own style here.   


  1. Orchid, I am actually pleased our team will be playing against such a fine country's team! Good Luck!

  2. Wishing both of our teams luck! It will be a wonderful game. Hugs to you!

  3. Dearest Orchid,

    CONGRATS to Japan for winning the Women's World Cup Final!!! What an honor. So glad that something that big happened to Japan after the dark days of March. It made it the second most watched game... Happy for your country.

    Lots of love,
