Japan Day 11: Lazy Sunday

We really didn’t do much today. We all woke up pretty late, the road trip had really worn us out. We spent the day mostly just hanging out and watching TV. Scott and I went to the same place for lunch that we did on Day 3, the name of the restaurant is Tonki by the way. This time I braved the deep fried cheeseburger. Imagine, if you will, hamburger meat stuffed with cheese, breaded and than deep fried. It was delicious, sure I could feel my arteries clogging as I ate it but boy was it yummy. I wish I had taken a picture of it but I didn’t so you will just have to use your imagination. If ever happen to be in Misawa japan I suggest you seek it out.

After lunch we went back to the house and we were lazy some more. We watched some of the UK office, some random crap on TV and pretty much just relaxed the day away. When dinner rolled around we tried to make it to the ATM in the post office before they closed. The only place that foreigners and get money out of the ATM is at post offices or on base. The post office ones close at 7:00 and we got there at 7:02. Now, we could have gone on base and used the ATM there but then they would have had to sign me in and crap so we decided to just go to a place that took credit cards. In the USA this wouldn’t be an issue at all but in Japan very few place take credit cards, it is very much a cash based society. Thankfully for us there are a few places that take credit cards and Scott and Susan knew a good one so we headed there. They call the place mamas but that isn’t the name, they have pretty much given every place they go to a nickname that has nothing to do with the actual name of the place.

Mamas had excellent food, pretty much everywhere we have gone has had excellent food as a matter of fact. No strange foods tonight either, we stuck to the basics. We all enjoyed a few beverages with dinner, I am really starting to like Japanese beer. I was never a big fan of Sapporo back home but here it seems to taste better, maybe because it’s on tap. Scott even had me call over the waitress and order our drinks for us all in Japanese, go me!

After dinner and beverages we headed off to the grocery store to restock on Chuhais and get some desert snacks.

We stayed up for a bit watching TV, drinking our chuhais and talking until we finally called it a night and went to bed.
