This is our first tourist-like activity, one of the highlights for me – a trip to the Railway Musium. I always loved trains ever since I was a baby. The very first word I ever read, according to my mom, was “Asakaze,” which is the name of a train. The musium was really made to please the true train fans. The people who designed and built it must have been fans themselves. Talking about it is pretty boring – I will post the photos later. (I packed away the SD card reader in the other suit case which I shipped from the airport to my mom’s home.) Evan and her 5-year old cousin, Kasumi, did enjoy the visit. It might have been a bit too difficult for Kasumi.
After that came another feast. 10 of us went to a Japanese restaurant together. Mmm, yum! Sashimi, chawanmushi, kanimeshi (crab & rice), negitoro (spicy tuna & scallions), miso soup,tempura, etc, etc… I can’t even remember everything that were on the table. Evan enjoyed another round of fresh, raw fish. Yes, more photos coming later.
