Things that make me happy

To look at gorgeously patterned silken Kimono, to touch them and to put them on. Generally speaking everything that has got to do with Kimono.

When my teacher for classical Japanese who has high standards and demands approves of my attempt of translating a sentence and has no complain of my wording. What sense of delight!

A good grade for a term paper which I worked hard on.

Japanese food.

Being able to occupy myself with the Japanese culture.
