Aki took us to a great Kobe Steak restaurant called SteakLand where we all enjoyed teppanyaki style Kobe beef (was around $30per person, which I thought was reasonable for that grade of beef.). They had these deep fried garlic chips which the chef "refreshed" by frying the chips in butter and he kept them to the side of the teppanyaki grill so that they were extra crispy. The steaks were melt in your mouth delicious but I highly enjoyed those garlic ch ips eaten together with the steak. I cannot say it was that much better than the 5 star steak we have on the Star of Honolulu.
Paul felt that because of the seasoning and marbling, he could tell it was a better steak. Bran felt that the ryokan steak was a tad better. Dad was so gracious to treat us to such an awesome lunch.
After our fab lunch, Aki took us to various stores right under sannomiya station for shopping. I got to purchase my U V umbrellas

This all went to plan thanks to the helpful people in the information ...

We left at 4.30pm and dawdled our way back to the hotel. We stopped by ...
The hotel had organised a morning walk at 6.30am. We were driven to near Kurobe River to see the sunrise at the gorge. There were monkeys playing and sitting on the road. Some didn't care that a car/bus was coming along and continued grooming. The Kurobe Gorge is the largest V-shaped gorge in Japan.
We were then driven to another ...

... and women respectively. He preached twice again on Sunday. Over lunch (or was it supper?) a young mother asked me about advice for raising her children. From my great knowledge of the theory, and my desire that I had practiced it more, I shared some things with her and she wrote me a letter thanking me!
On Monday 6 of the believers took us sightseeing into the mountains. We had a wonderful day together, working hard to communicate (mostly ...
