Breakfast: Cinnamon raisin bagel with cream cheese. Eaten hastily as I dashed to the train station.
Festival Food: Corn soup, hot dog on a stick, pancakes with whipped cream, french fries, french toast, cup of chicken nuggets, sweet potato sticks, honey roasted peanuts, chocolate banana on a stick, and a heart attack. In case you missed the memo, the Japanese love their festivals and they love to eat at their festivals. My school had it’s annual festival today, and when you have 350 students imploring you to try every single thing imaginable, yelling “only hyaku yen sensei, come try!”, your sense of obligation takes over (good excuse, eh?).
Dinner: Scallop, bacon, and garlic pizza. Since we are already up in Tenryu, we might as well go to Custer’s for pizza, right? You know, get some “real” food in our stomachs.
