Japan is a wonderful country to visit. The people are so gracious and nice. Yesterday we went exploring. This is a free park and shrine on the way to Nagasaki. We “petted” the coy and took a little walk, the kids were hungry so we started looking for a place to have lunch. There are Mc Donald’s and KFC but they are only in the big cities. It is fun to stop at a place that you would never think about stopping at in the states and be greeted by a little old lady so hunched over that you feel bad that she is serving you lunch. You point at a picture and your lunch choice is made. The kids got a lunch that was so funny. They had a noodle bowl with tofu pink egg slice, rice cakes, meat patty about the size of a 50 cent piece, 2 french fries, a very tiny liquid yogurt and a pudding cup. Of course the meal included a “Prize”. The noodles were a hit! We had a huge noodle bowl with kim chi… hot but so good.
