Children’s Day

Yesterday was a national holiday called Children’s Day. I met up with some friends for sightseeing in Gamagori, Nishio, and Handa.

We visited an island with a Shinto shrine on it, a miso factory, a vinegar museum, a tea house, and a costco.

It was pretty fun.

The Wild Derpfish

Last weekend I went to a garden with a large pond filled with Koi. For 100 yen, visitors could buy a cup of pellets to feed to the fish. The koi are actually really keen on people, since they associate them with food. Even if you don’t have food, they still come to the water’s edge. This gal (since there are usually only one male in a pond) tried to eat my camera.
