this was the second time to go to 'sanzoku' in yamaguchi. its not a normal restaurant. i can say that its more like a place for sightseeing and you can eat japanese food there. it was kind of hard core for me to drive all the way to the place. besides, i had lessons after a while lol.

there was one of the biggest events in hirosima 'toukasan' from the 2nd to 4th of june. tanya and i wanted to wear yukata but we couldnt make it since i didnt know how to put them on.people from other countries think i have to know how to wear yukata since im japanese. does any of you know how?

ken, tanya, danny and i conquered a 'man sanbe' mountain. it took us 2 hours to get to the top of the mountain.

danny flew to kansai from chicago. we went to osaka, kyoto as our first trip. we met my old roomate who i used to live with in van. unfortunately it rained so hard and we couldnt go anywhere. on the third day, we got to become 'maiko' and 'samurai'. it was pretty cool. i guess you cant see my skin but it looked horribly bad. we went sightseeing after that. there were a lot of students as a school trip around 'kiyomizu dera'. its famous for commiting a suicide around there. i heard someone jumped off and died recently...
