Yes, today is my JapanDay, as I like to refer to it. Much like a birthday, today is the day that I came to Japan 1 year ago. Today is a very important day, it marks an important change in my life, one that I am very happy for. Just like any special day (this being one of the most important ones) I desired to celebrate, and celebrate we did.
Ayako and I went to a Shabushabu restaurant to eat and drink (it also was a nomihodai = all-you-can-drink alcohol place). At a shabushabu place they give you raw meat and vegetables and you cook it in hot boiling water / soup at your own table. It was also all-you-can-eat, so if you like vegetables, meat, or noodles better – you can surely get your fill.
So we feasted and drank the night away. Unfortunately, all I can share with you are these photos. Rest assured, if you were around you were invited, I would turn no friend away from such an important event as Japan day 😉
Sorry, my regular phone’s camera is pretty bad, but hopefully you can see a little bit of shabushabu. (not to mention I didn’t rotate these images, apologies for the laziness)
