My mother used to often make this. My wife's name is also Yoshiko by the way (Happy Child character). I miss Japan. I will stop in on your blog every so often. Until then.

My mother also used to make Umeshu so I
drank it since I was child.

I made friend with American from Michigan
when I was much younger. Someday I want to
visit Holland MI again.
