... rice dish and the famous Ise udon noodles and local beer. All very yummy in spite of our non Japanese. And to top it off at the end of the evening we saw this young couple both in traditional kimonos who had obviously been out on their way home. Smiling and enjoying each other's company.

Exactly the same as if would have been at an American ...
Slept the best in 5 days. I have finally relaxed after settling in and getting the hang of everything. Again vegemite on toast for breakfast. Shower is tiny and very hard to move around. We spent the day in Shimo-Kitazawa whine was just 1 station from their house. It is a small hippy town with a lot of vintage secondhand shops. Very cute and a nice way to spend the day. We had lunch at a sandwich shop ...
