These booths are a lot like fair booths in the USA. There was food and games and more food.
We ate Okonomiyaki. It’s sort of like a big pancake with cabbage, seafood, egg and pork. Then when it is done, it is folded in half and a sauce is brushed on it. It was yummy! I had to request one without an egg. I seem to have developed an allergy to eggs in recent years. Since I am a foreigner, I hate to do this. I always think that they probably think that it is because I don’t like it.
Cherry blossoms as far as the eye can see!
This was a delightful day. It was like a retreat for me. It is an hour and a half drive one-way for me, but worth it. My home church sent me cds of the recent ladies’ retreat. I listened to them on the way and almost finished the last one before arriving back home. On the way, I could see snow-topped mountains in the distance and cherry trees blooming on the sides of the highway. On my return trip, I saw the sunset over the mountains. I am refreshed and ready for what tomorrow holds.
