I'm pretty sure this is a student driver...
This is the first wreck I have seen in misawa. The speed limit is so low, I almost thought misawa was car-wreck-free!
Moni and I had a picnic lunch from the Yokomachi grocery store! The fritters were weird... But they grew on me... That doesn't seem right!!
It's finally slushy season!!!!
I found a squid jig lure on the beach last week... I wasn't exactly sure what it was. Misawa is known for the squids in the ocean surrounding us...
I also found lots of other really cool stuff!
Then we had a farewell dinner for a friend. A casual dinner at the club, but a good time to hang out and chat before he takes off.
I attempted some suminigashi! I learned about it my freshman year of high school... I tried to remember it, but something here in Japan sparked my memory and I found the inks! Nicole and I have some new crafts to do!!
We went to the beautiful grounds of an onsen near the train station. We didn't have the awesome fall or even spring colors yet, but we had natural beauty and a little bit of snow! We'll just have to go back later and have some more pics taken! Here's a sneak peek...
There are some beautiful natural features and then some interesting Japanese additions... Gosh, it's gorgeous here!!
We went into the gift shop of this place and I saw this oxymoronic treat... Apple pies with this scary dude as the spokesman!! (I didn't try any!)
And these fish heads are popular decor all over Japan... I'm not sure if there's a meaning behind it... I've seen children's hats, toys, lanterns, window decor, and all sorts of stuff with this fish on it!
I keep seeing this interesting light 'sculpture' in town... It looks very retro... Or impressionistic. I like it!
I think this is my beach!!
This car had that giant speaker on top of the car and it was saying something... I apparently had no idea what it was saying, but I felt like I was in a parade!
And nic and I are enjoying some tasty food! I made huevos rancheros. Mexican food in Japan! I like it!
I saw this construction (or destruction) site this morning. It amazes me how the Japanese contain everything, complete their tasks is such a small area, and then rebuild.
