We made our way to the first place we’re staying in Japan, an AirBnB called “Urban Oasis.” It took a little longer than we had expected, but we made it. Our host, Gee, who runs a music production company in the downstairs part of the building, texted us to make sure we didn’t get lost.
When we got here, sweaty and exhausted, we put our things down and gave him a bottle of Bulleit Bourbon we had a brought for him (he insisted we didn’t have to, but we wanted to!). And he showed us around the place. Then we got cleaned up and were about to go grab something for dinner before passing out. We asked Gee if he wanted to join us.
So the three of us set out for a walk, and went to a nearby udon place. I can’t tell you what it’s called because everything, including the name, was only in Japanese. Luckily, Gee was there to help us navigate the menu.
I got something sort of like mentai spaghetti – udon with creamy cod roe sauce. Jason got a curry both with noodles.
Afterwards, we stopped and got a few snacks in the grocery store for tomorrow.
I fell asleep about 5 times while writing this post, so that’ll have to do for now. Tomorrow I’ll try to add some photos. [UPDATE: I added a few photos in this album on flickr, though most of them are from the following day.]
