Chiri & Chiriri

I found this gorgeous book the other day at the Japanese bookstore. I’m in love with it! I had to show some restraint not to photograph every single page and put it up here. Now I just need to figure out what the story is. And the title! It goes something like this…

We’re the cutest little twins ever. Let’s go ride bikes!

I know this cute little restaurant in the middle of the forest

Not only is it woodchuck-accessible, but bear and squirrel and bunny and…


our waiter is foxy!

back on our bikes

Welcome to the Forest Hotel. How long will you be staying?

    Hillary, I’ve been lurking, do you happen to have a ISBN for that Japanese Patchwork book you showed a few weeks back. I am on page 500 out of 1200 of my search for it on

    Where is the Japanese bookstore you went to? Is it the one in the Mitsuwa Marketplace? I’m hoping so since I’m planning to go shopping there this weekend specfically to look for Japanese books.

    I am a children’s book fanatic (much to my husband’s dismay) and I absolutely MUST have this book and the other by the same author about the same twins… I know nothing of Japanese but the illustrations are just beautiful! Why, oh why, do I live in a state where there are no known Japanese stores?!

    Chiri and Chiriri find a coffee shop…
    there are various tables…
    and the bees are drinking tea!
    The fox said “sorry to keep you waiting”
    the road was bumpy through the forest
    the reindeer says good evening…
