R is back in Japan!
My grade school friend from Michigan
came to visit Japan this month.
He used to teach English
in Hiroshima for a bit.
And this was his first time back since he left.
So he is going to be travelling around
catching up with friends...
and one of them being me! :D
I took a day off from work
so we could go explore Kamakura!
One of my favorite places.
We got off at Kamakura Station
and decided to find a place to eat lunch.
We wandered around a bit
but it was worth it.
We discovered a
tiny Japanese restaurant called
They had only counter seats.
Of course R being who he is,
he befriended the man sitting next to us
And soon they were sharing sake! :D
After a fun and delicious lunch
we hopped on the Enoden
for Hase station.
I'd actually never seen it before either.
Buddha looked very peaceful, if you were wondering.
We later hopped on the Enoden again.
Got off at Shichiri-ga-hama station
to hang by the beach to see the sunset.
It was the perfect place to relax
after a full day of walking.
And gosh the sunset was a stunner!
Exploring a place is always fun,
especially with friends.
But exploring a part of Japan
with my grade school friend from MI?
Pretty much the best time ever!
We headed back into the city
and stopped by a small bar with live music.
R is an incredible piano player.
Seriously, he can pretty much play anything.
So of course we made him get up there to play, too!
Pretty lady singing jazz
salary men doing rock n roll.
It was a fabulous night full of music.
I loved every minute of it! x
