One of the most enjoyable things that came from publishing The Monster Movie Fan's Guide To Japan in 2010 was that I was able to meet some nice people and become friends.
One of which was actress/model/Japanese language instructor Yuu Asakura. I enlisted her to pose for advertising photos for the travel guide and we have kept in touch ever since. I attended a play that she appeared in a few years ago. Unfortunately, due to work, I had to miss a couple of others she appeared in. Now that I'm retired and my time belongs to me, I will be able to attend future ones.

I was able to briefly see her last year at Don Glut's home in Burbank.
She is currently celebrating her birthday with her family in Japan.

Yuu has posted a number of photographs of her trip to Japan and it must be nice to celebrate a birthday with family while there.
Happy Birthday, Yuu!
