We’ve been busy biking around, hanging out, and having fun the past few weekends.
The last weekend in August, we biked all the way to Ichinomiya and went to Masumida Shrine.
Here is a bridge, and the main gate to the shrine.
The cleansing area had a really cool dragon.
There was also a horse statue.
The manhole cover for the area features flowers.
We saw some really beautiful and friendly kitties at the shrine!!
Teddy caught some type of bug for this one to eat. Haha.
We were super hungry cause we had biked 14 kilometers, but unfortunately not much was open at this time of day. So, we got pancakes. Teddy got the banana custard ones.
I got the berry ones. Super healthy. ❤
The next day, we were downtown and happened upon Domannaka Matsuri, a huge dance festival in Nagoya.
A samurai dance team.
The Japanese teacher had her birthday in August, so we went to Godiva to get her a present. We also got ourselves some Chocolixers. Yum!! They are about half the size of the American ones, and are about $1 more. (Really, though, this is a better size!)
We saw this cool dragon down in Sakae as well.
I wanted to join this dance team’s sake party for sure!!
We had a yummy snack from a delicious looking bakery before biking home.
Yesterday, we had some teachers from our school over for dinner. Their kids have been sick all week, and I’ve been watching them. Thanks to Dekavita and an obsession with not touching my face, I’ve avoided catching their strep and pink eye. Go me!
We had Mexican!
Well, that’s all for now!
