Tokyo has been quite freazing and windy. The weather made my family hesitant to go outside, while we were supposed to join the cultural event held by city council.
Eventually, we went to the venue, exposed with shower of rain in addition to strong wind. But, life is harsh: despite our "hard work", our son didn't like, even hated, the traditional musical show with "Taiko", Japanese drum, and we had to leave there as he didn't stop crying from the start.
Efforts don't nesessarily pay off. This is the lesson my wife and I learned.
