I found those absolutely wonderful blogs, one of them created by a Japanese woman, called Tomoko, a name with a lovely sound. I was trying to find out what her name means, and at Wikipedia was explained that depending on how the kanji characters are written, the interpretation is different. I do not know how she writes her name, but all of the meanings are very nice.
  • 友子 - "friendly child"
  • 知子 - "knowing child"
  • 智子 - "wise child"
  • 朋子 - "friendly child"
  • 皆子 - "beautiful girl"
In the second  blog "View of Japan" you will enjoy masterly taken photos of Japanese nature, landscapes, people, cities and art, all so very beautiful, presented by a variety of photographers.

In her blog "Green Tomato" Tomoko san tells us with words and pictures about her culture and her life, all so very interesting.

Check those blogs and surf around, you will be rewarded with nothing but pleasure, you will smile, you will feel calm and peaceful - I did!


P.S. - I think, her name means: friendly child, because I saw the matching characters in an e-mail she sent me, giving me permission to use her photos - thank you Tomoko!
