We have now officially registered with the Kyoto government office. This means we can (hopefully) open bank accounts and get cell phones now. We also know where the kids will be attending school; very very close to our place (see map!). It is extremely hot here today, 31 °C (88 °F). It is supposed to go higher, and continue to thunderstorm, but right now it is hot and sunny. I bought a fan on the way home yesterday so we can sleep without using the A/C.
