It was David's birthday yesterday! Happy birthday sweetheart! I LOVE YOUUUUUUU! <3
For his birthday we decided to get off the mountain and spend the night in town. Because of that, we had all day to do what we wanted. The castle is about a 3km trek from the station and we had time, so we walked on over. Akiko had told me that the castle would be the best place to view the blossoms. On our way, we stopped for lunch at Denny's. It was nice~ I FINALLY tried omurice. It's an omelet with ketchup rice and other stuff inside. Mine was covered in a type of gravy and has cheese and chicken inside. And when I say ketchup rice, I mean they put a dollop of it with the rice and mixed it together before stuffing it inside. Anywho, it was yummy! I just wish they would cook the eggs a little more, but that's how people like it over here. Oh well. Still good! David got the American Club Sandwich and it was tasty, too. And I got fizzy pink lemonade and David got melon soda. Yumyum~~~
After lunch we continued out walk over. It was really pleasant. The weather was nice and warm with a nice cool breeze. Really a good day for a birthday date. And then we got to the castle. It was AMAZING! The blossoms were so lovely! I was hoping we'd be able to go inside the castle, but it's still closed, sadly. And there's still that icky orange barricading fence around it. Bah. Oh well. I made sure to take a bunch of pictures. And David took a bunch as well. I'll have to get them from him later. There were a few different types of blossoms, too. The white ones, white and red ones and pink ones! And a lightish pink kinda, too!
