... even in American standard. Got my cap @ Sports Authority, and goggles @ another department store. Supermarket was our favorite! Very entertaining just browsing the variety of sashimi, sushi, bentos, let alone all various cooked food. Not expensive at all, especially with the quality of food.

Alex and I shared a sashimi box, and he had 2 skewers of chicken and 1 skewer of pork all by himself. I believe he’s going to pass the cruise ...

As this was a Saturday, the museum was packed with Japanese taking it all in. The messages being reinforced seemed to be: The war was ...

Meiji Restoration & Chiran Kamikaze Museums

A travel blog entry by rbfromnj

... the English name has faded to the point where it can barely be seen. Buses are more problematic--there aren't location signs, so you have to depend on hearing announcements (which are surprisingly often pre-recorded in both Japanese and English). The Peace Musuem of Kamikaze Pilots in Chiran is a deeply sad place. It is adjacent to a memorial shrine for the kamikaze pilots. I did not visit the shrine, but I saw many very sad ...
