During the last days

During the last days there were quite some things that happened. I'll show it to you with a lot of photos now. I guess it's mostly food porn today.

Shrine in front of the hostel

Matcha pudding. It was so delicious!

The cat that lives here: Mai-chan. She's so cute~

Soft cake. It kind of reminded me of Oreo. At least the cream in between. It tastes like a whole Oreo.

Customer's breakfast: salmon, omrice, various fried fish, potato salad, nori...

My breakfast: tsukemono, some types of fried fish

We went out for shopping. When we came back we stopped at a udon store.

This is what I ate: kitsune udon.

Snack for afternoon: Takoyaki. But they weren't that good.

Customer's dinner. Tamagotofu, fish, sashimi, pork with apple sauce

My dinner: tempura, tamagotofu and rice of course.

The next day's lunch: German dish. Handmade Spätzle and sauce.

The same day a new customer from Denmark came. We decided to go to town so I could show him around a bit and we could explore more places.

Yuasa castle. Built ~1140. It's a hotel now. On top of a hill. Going there was so exhausting.

Building inside a temple's area. It was so quiet and beautiful.

From walking such a long time we became hungry and got some takoyaki. They were so good!

On the way home we took the way next to the sea and saw the sunset. So we stopped. Isn't it beautiful?

When we went to the beach a bit later this is what it looked like. We also went swimming until it was dark. There even wasn't the moon. It was new moon so it was just a black night.

We decided to go to the temple nearby. There we met an old lady. She sent us to the graveyard. We just had a very bad flash light with us and we could hardly see anything. But the atmosphere....

From the graveyard we found a way through the forest to the top of the mountain. So we took a very long walk to see...

This. We could se so many lights from the towns nearby

Yesterday we were at a hanabi. I will write about it in my next post.

Farm, City and Supermarkets

So today Roy and me joined the host lady when she went downtown. First we went to a farm though. It was a very old building. The people there were so nice anlthough we did hardly hunderstand what they said.
We got cucumbers, eggplants and a watermelon as presents before we left again. The house they live in is really beautiful. Very old and huge. I think three or four couples live there. Like the parents and their children who are all married. So there are lots of people. We only met three of them though.
Afterwards we went to a market hall bought some stuff and went to a restaurant afterwards.
When we were finished with eating we went to a supermarket and also got some stuff there before we got home again.
