Blog: Japan Day 1: First Meetings and Dinner with Aya
Only Takeru's aunt was home when we got there at maybe around 2 or 3 pm because his parents were at a concert. She was so nice, and had a bunch of different sakura flavored things and tea sweets that she let me try! One of my main goals in Japan was to try everything sakura flavored that I could get my hands on, and it's like she read my mind! I will have a separate post with all of the different sakura things, so I won't post about that here just yet. Anyway, she does Japanese tea ceremony, which is really cool, and I learned a bit about it last time I was in Japan at Kinjo Gakuin University.
After that, Takeru's friend Aya took us to a yakiniku place called Jojoen, sort of like a Korean barbeque. It was soooo good! She has pictures of us together, but I don't have them yet, so I'll add them here when I do!
After that, we went to a store full of all kinds of random stuff, from makeup, to toys, food, snacks, alcohol, clothes, accessories, and lots of other random fun things, called Don Quijote. I got some Kit Kats, (for these I will also have a whole post dedicated to) sakura wine, and some candy, then later I got two really cute bra sets for like $10! I guess I'll also do a post for all of the clothes I got too? Ahhhhh I have so much stuff to post about!
