We spent most of the day relaxing, but got a little work done too. I finally got the winter clothes stored away and the summer clothes put into the dresser. After drying our laundry in town, we decided to go watch the local minor league baseball team, the Indigo Socks. We’ve been here almost three years and this evening was the first time we’d been to a game. The stadium is small, but the background is pretty spectacular.
We had to leave after the 7th inning stretch, so I’m not sure who won, but we had a good tune and I’m sure we’ll go again.
Pretty sure I’ve posted a photo of this restaurant’s food before, but it’s delicious, so enjoy another…this time in black & white!
Their pork fried rice, karaage, and egg drop soup have become our version of Japanese comfort food. It’s very good!
While out shopping today, I found some interesting items…
Tortillas and a pouch of “tacos meat.”
Fugu…potentially poisonous blowfish / puffer fish for sale at the supermarket.
I went to a friend’s house today to play cards. It was a lot of fun even though I mostly lost:
Then I went to the mall and ate KFC:
It’s always so neat and organized.
I saw this mask while out shopping:
I wanted to buy it, but couldn’t figure out who I would give it to, so unfortunately it remains at the store.
We went to help out at the musical rehearsal today. Some students stuck around to listen to our Elsa sing Let it Go!
They seemed to enjoy it. Hopefully they’ll come watch a full performance next year!
As Becky said, today we visited the last 2 Tokushima temples on our pilgrimage. When we continue, we’ll be starting with the Kochi prefecture temples. It was a beautiful day and Temples 22 and 23 were pretty spectacular all decked out in fall foliage.
We continued our journey along the 88 Temple Pilgrimage today and visited the last two temples in Tokushima. It was a little bittersweet. On the one hand, I’m ready to get out of Tokushima and continue to the other prefectures on our island, but on the other hand, we’re finished with the temples in our own prefecture.
From Temple 22, Byodo-ji:
And from Temple 23, Yakuo-ji:
Headed to Tokyo for a quick trip with some friends. Taking a night bus for the first time. This could get interesting.
All of the temples on the 88 temple pilgrimage have some really impressive fountains. These might have been the coolest ones yet. Seen at temple 21:
