... VISH till 10.30am, I hung around for 2 hours in the English office by the heater.
Later, I biked to VISH and thankfully I didn't get lost. I was running a bit late, so when I parked my bike, I forgot to take the key with me.

from a cheap vending machine place – delicious! Oh, the ...
It was really tough to leave Misawa (stopped in on the way back from Hokkaido), but we were so happy to have visited. Kristen now has gotten a good glimpse of where my mom grew up and where I visited frequently as a child. It's now actually possible for her to picture all my childhood stories from Japan.
Getting to Kyoto was a trek. It was another long (7 hour), but comfortable Shinkansen ride from Hachinohe to ...
