21 March, 2015 

It is a public holiday in Japan due to the Spring Equinox. 
Plus there was a solar eclipse yesterday, although not seen in Northern Japan. 
So, I managed to score a rare Saturday off from work. 

It was a beautiful early Spring day and we drove down from 
This City
That City. 

We visited some graves like so many other people today ! 
Then we went to Hotel Homatsu where we met Chikako's parents for lunch. 
The food was soooooooooooo good. 

We all ate the same Japanese fare; set menu and pre-ordered online. 

 Chikako's parents seem to enjoy both dinner and time with us. 

 Japanese sweets are #1 !

After that we went back to their house to spend time with Justy san. 

 Me taking a photo of my boots - mistake, actually.

All-in-all, a fun day.
