No need to ring the doorbell...

The Front Door
just come on in!

This is our front door. Note the nice welcome mat. If anyone can point us at somewhere we can get an "Irrashaimase!" door mat, or would like to donate one, we would be very appreciative! You might have also noticed the small Japanese flag. Unfortunately, this is not an outdoor flag and is suffering from the ravages of wind and weather. Pretty soon, it will probably be laid to rest with honors.
