Journeys in Japan Pt 1
I’ve been so busy since arriving that I’ve barely had time to edit any photos or do anything! After taking a nap on Tuesday, I went out and met up with my friend Julia to help her teacher with an English language research study she was doing. Basically I had to listen to 20 scenarios and answer them how I would naturally. It was interesting seeing a Japanese college! The last time I was in Japan was in 2005, and I was able to visit the high school my Uncle’s friend taught at so it’s interesting to have been able to “experience” both a high school and college in the times I’ve been here.
After that we met up with her sister and Julia’s boyfriend, and went to eat at a ramen place called Ramen Jiroh. They really pile on a mountain of beansprouts and garlic so it was difficult to finish, but the broth was probably the best I’ve had anywhere. The chashu was just so-so though, I’ve had better in America, surprisingly.
Today Julia and I went to Tokyo DisneySEA for the day, which was a lot of fun. I love the design of all the different locations, especially the Journey to the Center of the Earth/20,000 Leagues area. While waiting in line for the Indiana Jones ride, some guys behind us were trying to remember Indy’s name, and decided “Oh yes, I think it was Christopher Jones”. That became our unofficial slogan for the day. ”Save us, Christopher Jones!”
Photos and video soon!
