Anniversary, Halloween and Critters;

       Happy Halloween from Japan, everyone♪
Yesterday, we had 37th wedding anniversary and went to have lunch at the new restaurant opened recently.  Time sure flies p;-) 
Decorations inside the entrance and some of the items they sell;
There are seats in tatami mat room as well with Japanese atmosphere;
And the decoration from my favorite cake shop

*For Saturday's critters*
Sympetrum eroticum;  one of the red dragonflies we can see in autumn.
Dusky thrush; ツグミ 'tugumi' in Japanese.

Linking this post to, "Saturday's critters"and  The Bird D'Pot;

  4. Dearest Miyako,
    Glad I managed to leave you congratulations for the anniversary.
    Today I am to tired after a long drive from 9:15 AM I left and returned home by 3:15 PM. A visitation and funeral and also a check up with the specialist whom I have been seeing since I got paralyzed. Just plain tired; sorry!
    Loved your photos, especially that thrush!

  5. Happy anniversary to both of you. The decorations are really nice in the restaurant, I especially like the ones in the tatami room, rather elegant.
    The thrush is one of my favourite birds, the ones around here have speckled breasts and are a slightly different colour.

    Love and hugs from New Zealand.
