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! 😀
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.
R got the Oyako-don
and I got the Tamago-don.
Of course R being who he is,
he befriended the man sitting next to us
And soon they were sharing sake! 😀
After a fun and delicious lunch
we hopped on the Enoden for Hase station.
I wanted to show R the Great Buddha at Kotoku-in (高徳院).
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

It was a fabulous night full of music.
I loved every minute of it! x
