Moving back in time
Flew to Izumo from Haneda after class on Saturday, meeting the rest of my family and Jessica at Izumo airport. We drove to the Tokyu Inn and checked in to our 3 twin rooms, then met up with Asako, Jung, Masayasu, and Satoe for dinner at the macrobiotic restaurant Beehive, a lucky find in such a small and out of the way town. They even had seitan dishes, and the bill for ten people, including drinks, was very reasonable, though the service was sketchy and the table they gave us much too small, despite our reservation days in advance. We gave them a translation of their menu into English, which mom had done so that we could all easily order, but they seemed weirded out and standoffish rather than grateful.
