Japan Diaries 2: Day 14

Day 14 (May 30)

It seems like all the rain that did not fall in the past few days fell today. According to the weather forecast, this will continue until the evening. With this much rain, I suddenly missed our trip to Shirahama Beach a few days back. How I wish the weather today was that nice. 

Regardless, the good thing about this weather was that it gave us no choice but to rest and prepare for our 4-day trip to Gifu and Nagano Prefectures tomorrow.  My wife and I also took this opportunity to cook for our Japanese family and clean our room. 
No outdoor adventures for us today

Hot Cocoa for breakfast
Our version of Tuna Pasta also for breakfast

During lunch, Mr. Toshi and I got a lengthy chat about some good to know things about Japanese culture and tradition. We also discussed our itinerary for our trip tomorrow. 
Nilagang baboy for lunch

Lunchtime with our Japanese family
Hope Springs with Japanese subtitles... nice!

That afternoon, we watched the 2012 film, Hope Springs which was surprisingly a good film. We planned to have a movie marathon but lost the drive as we have watched all other upcoming movies. Ella benefited from this decision as she binge-watched the Little Pony and Peppa Pig episodes on Youtube. 
Look who had a My Little Pony marathon after the movie!

Overall, we might not have visited anything new today but I could safely say that each one of us had a funfilled day in the sense that we got another chance to serve our Japanese family and also spend another quality time with them.

That night, I got quite a challenge falling asleep as I was very excited about where we'd be going tomorrow...

Where is it you ask? Well, you have to wait for my next article to find out.! =)
