Orchid Gardens

This evening, we rode our bikes down to Fushimi to try out a vegetarian cafe and to see the orchid gardens’ “Love Illumination”.

Teddy found a cafe called “Love Pacific Cafe”, which is about a 5 minute walk from the Nagoya Science Center. We got a salad and soy veggie meat burgers.

The burger was super good! It wasn’t a single patty – it was more like chunks of glazed seitan on a bun.

After dinner, we walked over to Ran no Yakata – the orchid gardens.

It is almost Hina Matsuri, so there were cute little Hina Matsuri displays.

They had a tree where you could post love wishes and/or your names, so we put ours up, too!

Tomorrow, we hope to try another vegetarian friendly place!
