Nicole's new mission is to explore this strange new world and seek out every type of Japanese candy she can find! Already she has a list of favorites (and I have to admit, some of them are quite palatable!) and she knows what key words to look for! Smart girl, she's even taken to sharing the good stuff with me, so I know what I like, too! There are some interesting concoctions.... No one wants to end up with the package that says 'bean curd' on it! Okay, maybe there is someone, but it's not this girl!
Misawa is a cute little town! Very 60's/70's in structure, but clean, quaint, and everyone is so courteous! I already love being a part of it! Some our favorite things (discovered in 1 day!) are the beach, the trees, the 100 yen stores, the candy, the plethora of vending machines (with infinite types!!), and sushi, for sure!!
Look, a random vending machine!
And a retro ambulance van!!
This is the inside of a Subaru with the steering wheel on the wrong side. It feels weird to be a passenger on the left! It'll take some getting used to!!
For dinner we went out to sushi. Yes, you read that right, we ALL went out for sushi! I can't wait to try MORE new places!
This was Nicole's 'kids sushi platter.' It looked like a whole lot of fun!!
This was my sushi platter. I was in heaven!!
