Last weekend, Orin and I went to Wakkanai. We spent two nights in our car at different roadside stations. Do you know “roadside station” in Japanese? I think you do! It’s “michi-no-eki.” Actually, the best way to say it in English is “rest stop.” So, we spent two nights at different rest stops.
I will post a few pictures from the trip – but only a few, because my camera battery died! Too bad!
The first picture is from Cape Souya, the northernmost point in Japan. It was very windy, and my ears got really cold! The monument was really busy, so I had to take a picture with a lady in it.
We ate scallop curry at a rest stop. I wanted to take a picture of the whole meal, but I completely forgot! Here is a picture of the last bite.
In Wakkanai, we looked at an interesting barrier between the water and the road. This is called a “breakwater.” I thought it looked pretty.
We also ate a really delicious dinner in Wakkanai – octopus shabu and hokke – mackerel in English. However, I can’t show you a picture of it. Sorry! ^__^
The last picture I’ll show you is from a rest stop called Obira Nishin Banya. It was right by the water, and it was a beautiful day.
