Japan Diaries: Day 11

Day 11 December 29, 2014:

Another great morning here in Japan. Today, we're heading to Wakayama Prefecture but this trip wouldn't be like our normal road trips because we're going to the prefecture to accompany Mr. Toshi for his regular heart check up.
The road going to the hospital
Aside from Mr. Toshi and his wife, Tomato the family dog would also be joining us for this trip. The travel was quite fast because Mr. Toshi lives in an area of Osaka Prefecture that is nearest to Wakayama Prefecture. We passed through beautiful sceneries and several tunnels along the way until we reached a seemingly "normal" looking Seiyu Memorial Hospital.

Look who's enjoying the trip!

Little did I know that the doctors in this "normal" looking hospital were actually the best of the crop. (We can really never judge the book by its cover.)  After Mr. Toshi's check up, we drove to a nearby place so that Tomato could get a chance to poop. This place, according to Mr. Toshi, is where he brings Tomato for walks during Tomato's younger days. (Tomato is very old now and is having difficulties walking.)
Great view for a walk. Can you spot me?

Run Ella! Run!

The place is highly categorized by the elevated area where dog owners walk their pets. Aside from this area, there is also a lower area that serves as a sports field. My daughter and I briefly played in this area while we waited for Tomato to do his thing. After doing his business and being cleaned, we proceeded to the vicinity of Negoro-ji (temple) to eat lunch. I didn't take pictures though due to time constraints.  When we finished we headed back home because Mr. Toshi would still report for work. 
There are plenty of branches of this resto. Each branch uses the name of the place its located. e.g. Kumatori Shokuo

We then spent the remainder of the day washing clothes and resting. That night Mr. Toshi and his wife brought us to Hineno-Shokuo which serves traditional Japanese food. After a hearty Japanese meal, we went home and rested because we're excited to see what tomorrow's adventure would be.
