Dragonfly larva leaving its shell at biotope at school





Open school at Mo's kindergarten today. Went to outside where they had biotope, Ton happened to be there for science class. They were having observation of nature there, and many dragonfly larva were hanging on green, leaving its shells. Quite amazing to see this in the middle of Tokyo.

Dinner at Aman Tokyo with George

Met up with George and his friends for dinner at Aman Tokyo because he couldn't get any hotel room in Tokyo for this evening. As expected, it was a wonderful hotel, though I personally felt the staff has to have more experience of working in this new hotel.
