He can't really ride a unicycle, but he was able to get up there long enough for me to take a photo =)
We went to lunch at "the next place we see that has pictures in the window"...yeah, my restaurants choosing abilities are the best! We sit down and start looking at the picture menu (thank God for those things!) and a waitress walks up and starts talking to us in Japanese. Me, being the genius that I am, assumed she was asking us if we want something to drink so I say "mizu" for water. She looks at me funny and walks away and the boys (my husband and our new friend Andrew) start laughing hysterically...apparently she asked if we speak Japanese...oops! I guess she got her answer =) I'm never going to hear the end of that one but at least I'm trying...right?!?!
After lunch, we saw a lot of people walking around in robe like clothing and about 30 minutes late we hear chanting up ahead so we hurry up the road and find this
I have no idea what was actually going on, but we followed the crowd down the street and found that it ended at a festival of sorts
with lots of interesting foods
and prayers hanging outside a temple (at least I THINK that's what they are)
We didn't come home with bikes, but I'm so glad we went out looking and found this celebration!
