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

In was some of the best food we had the whole trip! Once again the ...
... tried his luck at Omikuji (Japanese fortune card), finding himself unable to understand the fortune that was delivered in Japanese. Good fortunes are to be kept, while poor fortunes are to be tied to a special tree or string to be absorbed by the shrine. Not knowing what his fortune was, Alistair did not want to take any chances and tied his fortune to a tree.
We returned to the hostel after our walk around the shrine and asked ...
Today we went to Matusiro ES. It shares some of its space with the Samurai house that I went to on July 1. This school was very organized and excited for our visit.
The school was rebuilt 2 years ago. The city spent lots of money on it we were told. You could tell by the beautiful wood building material. It also had existed as a school for I think they said 150 years. What a history.
First we presented about ...
