We also visited a Timepiece Museum, which has Japanese largest pendulum clock. It had a lot of interesting clocks and pocket watches, with even more interesting translations.
After a rest at the hotel, we went walking around the city to find an enormous 7-11. It was 9 floors! It contained everything from a pharmacy to clothing to a grocery store. We seemed to arrive just as they had put the 50% off stickers on all of the sushi and tempura. Of course we took advantage of this!
Our second day in Mastumoto we enjoyed a complimentary breakfast at the hotel. There was a choice of Japanese or Western style. Adam chose the Japanese breakfast, which was fish, miso soup, scrambled egg, carrot and burdock root salad, rice with nori, and green tea. I wasn't feeling like fish at 8 am, so I went with the Western style, which was toast and jam, a roll, scrambled eggs, ham, cabbage salad, and orange juice. After breakfast we went to the Parco department store and shopped around a little. There was 6 floors to get through, so it took us a couple of hours. We walked around the city until it was time to catch the train back to Obuse.
We only have a week and a half left in Obuse, then we are off to Nagoya. I think we are both pretty excited to move on to the next stop on our itinerary!
