... and our tattoos attracted a lot of attention from the older people working there. We also had to show them on a map EXACTLY where we were from hehe

After a couple of hours we decided it was time to go and to see what merchandise they might have. Jess was obessed with buying a sweet bread in a can they sold with Himeji motifs on it. We didn't get it as I think it would be foul.
