Japan Trip Day 4 to 6: Himeji
Sorry for the late update, it was a bit inconvenient to access the internet at the hotel in Osaka and at Himeji, so I managed to only upload some pictures.
After Tokyo I went over to Himeji to visit my host family from when I studied in Japan in 2004. I took the Nozomi bullet train early in the morning and arrived about lunch time.
I was picked up by my host family brother, Yuuki, who took me out for lunch, then took me to the house which had a nice welcome sign the host father had prepared. (^o^)
Since there wasn’t much to do at the house apart from putting my luggage in the room, I got a lift to the city where I did some exploring.
I found a gaming store with some anime goods as well.
Did a bit of exploring of the city. Looked like they were preparing for the upcoming Himeji Castle festival.
I managed to do some shopping as well and bought myself a PSP game called Utawarerumono. It’s the first release limited editon that came with a lot of extras.
Visited Animate to check out some anime goods, and
I tried a lot of various fast foods as well. This one wasn’t very good though.. meat patty tasted tough in parts. I should of taken it back, since there was a satisfaction guarantee, although by then i already ate the burger, so i couldn’t take anything back.
Went to some anime/hobby-related stores in one of the shopping centres.
I found another game store!
More food and drinks.
Lots of walking and working off all the food I ate.
Went to a gym to work out and found that there was Shorinjin Kempo tournament traingng going on.
Ate at a Chinese resturant called Kohouseki with Yuuki. Ate some crab omelette on rice which tasted like shark fin soup.
