2012 GOLDEN WEEK FAMILY TRIP -Day 1 Part 2-

After enjoying beautiful cherry blossoms at the shrine, we headed to the port side to fill up our stomach.

But we didn’t know any particular dining places there and just drove around the port area.

Luckily, we found this small yet nice sushi restaurant. On the lunch time, it seems like they only offer donburi (fish or other food on the top of rice) and all of us ordred “kaisen-don” so that we could have different kinds of seafood in one bowl.

2012 GOLDEN WEEK FAMILY TRIP -overall review-

For the first time since 2011 Earthquake and Tsunami, my family and I went on a trip. After going through a tough year, we felt blessed that all of us are safe and healthy, and we could have quality time together again. Unfortunately, my youngest sister couldn’t join us because of her school stuff, though.

Throughout the holiday, the weather was quite nice. Sunny and warm or hot like in summer. We travled around Tohoku region in northern Japan and sakura season just arrived there, which allowed us to enjoy beautiful cherry blossoms in full bloom :)
