Brasshopper in Japan 2002

In the late summer and autumn of 2002 Brasshopper travelled with Irv and Karen to many parts of the world. Irv and his wife Karen visited Ravenstonedale in the summer of 2002 where they quickly adopted our quaint ways and smuggled Brasshopper back to the States and then to other parts of the globe. Here he is pictured in Nagoya, Japan.

Nagoya is one of Japan's major cities with a population of more than 2 million. It is a twin town of Los Angeles. It lies on the coast and like Los Angeles it is an important international port.
