Easter in Japan

Here are just the highlights from our Easter here in Japan.
We did not do a lot.
We did Baskets/Dinner/Ice cream... and ... played some Wii & watched a Movie.
Please Enjoy the Pictures.
We had a very laid back Easter day.
We did not go to church, but we still had a lesson on 'What Easter Day really means to us".
We missed our Family so very much, but made the best of the 1st Easter in Japan, and the 1st Easter, where i did not cook a big dinner. (wow!)

GOOD MORNING EVERYONE!

After Easter morning & some relaxing around the house we headed out via-train.
We went to the Kanazawa Hakkei station.
We walked a few blocks, headed twards our favorite Yakiniku Restaurant.

The bill was reasonable ... for 6,000 Yen (or $60) we were FULL and you had to roll us out!
The kids had fun too... and thats why we love Yakiniku!

After Yakiniku we took the train to Yokosuka Chup Station.
There is a Baskin Robin's Very Close to Yakiniku... but we needed to digest. So, we took the train (20 minutes)... to another ice cream shop.
Photobucket
By that time, ... we were all ready for a ice cream cone!
Ethan got Jamocha... Me? Strawberry Banana...
The kids? Rainbow and Cotton Candy!

Olivia, you are a doll!

The Express Train ride home.
We had a 'booth' seat and Relaxed the whole way home. :)
We hope you had a nice/relaxing Easter Day!!

Looks like you guys had a great Easter! Ours was very laid back too.

We need to schedule a Yokosuka train tutorial field trip! The hub and I came down last summer, stayed on base and wanted to go to Yokohama. Nobody could tell us how to get there! We had a map, but there were 3 different train stations on it and we had no idea which one to choose. The one we finally ended up at wasn't a JR line, and we COULD NOT figure anything out! After two tries on the wrong trains, we just gave up (it was 9pm by this time) so we just walked back to the base and had drinks at Chili's, buy Yokohama would have been so much better!

OMG!
YES! :)
Actually my hubby is coming to Tama?? This weekend...
He has to go for a Boy Scout thing.
I dont know much, but i do know he is going via train.
He said 1.5 hours to get there.

Anyways, i would love to get together... !!!
We like to take the KEIKU Line to Yokohama. From our house, it's a local for about 10 minutes, and then we swap to an Express to Yokohama Station ... 16 minutes.
Thats it!!
And here in IKEGO we have our own personal Train Station... so we have it made in the shade.

I would love to meet up... if it's truely only 1 hour and 30 minutes, we should plan something soon! :)
