Ramen and bamboo

Went out for ramen with our family, it was so nice to get the real stuff again, instead of making do with instant.

And their gyoza was tops, too. ( Hakata Ramen )

Got up early to take another taiko class in Akaike, but found out upon arrival the community center was still closed for the New a Year holiday, until Jan. 6th!  Oh well.  Not to be.

Should've paid attention to the omen, when my taiko charm fell and broke the second I left the apartment!... Hmmm

But found a beautiful bamboo grove and a lovely little network of houses taking a toad I don't usually go.

So bonus.


  1. I just love Japanese architecture. I can look at that house all day. :3
