31st August, 2014 

We drove down to That City
to meet our friend, Shoko-san 
from near the Sea of Japan.






Shoko san gave us a bottle of wine. 
So thoughtful. 


We went to our favourite Vietnamese restaurant
for a long, lazy luncheon. 


Desert is served . 


After that we went to Kaiseizan Park
to stroll amongst the trees. 




The fountain put on a cool display. 


We happened upon a free jazz concert. 







The Sakura trees are so gnarled - just amazing. 






Many archers were shooting arrows at targets.
Kudo. 




We elevated Shoko-san to the dizzy heights of Big I
for a look see. 








We had a great day together !
