November 24 - Tokyo Disney Sea (day)

Woke up extremely early today to be able to go to Tokyo’s Disney Sea. Akin to Disney’s California Adventure, Tokyo Disney Sea offers another park filled with many Disney themed attractions, bringing some similar rides from abroad, such as Tower of Terror, while offering other things exclusive to the park, such as Sea Salt Ice Cream.

November 20 - Owl Cafe

My friend invited me to try out the owl cafe in Tsukishima today. We arrived super early in order to make sure that we had a seat, but afterwards we went around to try monjayaki, a famous local dish that is eaten with tiny spatulas. Once inside the cafe, we were allowed to hold, pet, and take pictures of the wonderful owls.

I can never get enough of the fall here in Tsuru. Wherever I seem to go, the sight of autumn is found around every corner. 

November 16 - Weekend with Host Family

In a somewhat spontaneous fashion, my host mother took me out again this weekend for lunch and to shop at a somewhat distant supermarket. On the way out, a wonderful sunset that graced Mt. Fuji appeared before me.
