The Family Comes To Nagasaki

Posted on Sunday June 21, 2009 at 10:52am in

Brittany’s last night was on Thursday, so we took a photo to commemorate the event.

Yesterday, some of my relatives came to Japan! Mariel (my cousin), Aunt Kathleen, and my grandma all came to Nagasaki. After hanging out with Asami for the day, I went to meet my family at Nagasaki station. From the station I took them out to eat at the Takoyaki place in Sumiyoshi I like.

After dinner, I took them all to the house. They are staying at my old host family’s house. My family was very excited to have them.

After they were all settled in, I left for the night and met them again in Sumiyoshi in the morning. We had a very full day today and I showed them a lot of Nagasaki. We started around 10am with the peace park…

At the peace park in the morning. The weather was pretty rainy and very humid today.

We then walked over to the atomic bomb museum.

Then, we went to eat Nagasaki Champon at the station.

After lunch we saw the 26 martyrs of Japan monument. Then, to the Kannon statue.

Outside I got a good shot of Mariel sprinkling water on the statue.

Next, we went to see Cocowalk mall. I found a new engrish sticker I hadn’t seen before:

What can you expecy from hog but a grunt.

When they had seen the mall, we went to dinner at a sushi restaurant in Togitsu. We had to wait around an hour to get seated, but it was worth the wait.

After dinner, Kiyoko-san and Grandma went home on the bus. I took Mariel and Aunt Kathleen to karaoke with me and my friends.

Singing.

I even found some Engrish while singing “We Didn’t Start The Fire”

We didn’t light it, but we tried to light it. (actual lyrics: We didn’t light it, but we tried to fight it).

It’s been a busy day trying to see everything! They have one more full day in Nagasaki. We will be doing more tomorrow.
