My mom came to pick me up at the airport and we went to Takehara to have okonomiyaki...DELISH!! Takehara is a well preserved old town in Hiroshima prefecure. After we ate, we strolled down the old street so I could take some pictures.
It takes about an hour and a half to drive to our house on the island
To maximize my time in being back in Japan, I filled up on food! I ate yakiniku, matsutake dishes, ramen, strawberry shortcake, shabu shabu, etc! We went to the grocery store a few times and I'm really looking forward to getting that box!
We also made sure to visit the onsen (hot spring) a few times. There's one on island that hardly anyone goes to anymore, since there's a newer facility. It's great b/c there's no one there and I can fully relax.
Family/friends, food and onsens are what I miss most about Japan...
