We arrived in Toyohashi by Shinkansen as sun was setting. Toyohashi
seems a pretty industrial town - it doesn't get much write up in the tourist
guides, but were visiting Deca so it was an obligatory stop. Deca was
teaching English so he knew the town a little. He took us out to the
local Pizza joint for dinner.
After dinner we went Back to Deca's pad. Of course it's small, but
it slept the 4 of us without too much trouble. There a little differences
between Japanese apartments and western apartments. The elevator fit
3 people - no more. Garbage is separated and taken out on different
days. The bathrooms are smaller than most closets. Laundry generally
doesn't include a dryer.
The next morning, I went out with Deca to get some good shots for his family
back home. Deca is great at acting for the camera so we had a little
fun. Deca had class to teach that morning so we didn't have long.
I went back to the apartment and a few minuets later, Deca came back!
It turns out his manager's wife had just had a baby and he had the day off.
We walked around Toyohashi for a while (checked e-mail) and then got on the
trail for Tokyo
Thanks for the space Deca!
