One of our favorite things about Japan is the food Keiji introduced us to, like sushi, ramen and shabu shabu sukiyaki.
He also took us to several historic sites. Here is a Shinto Shrine at Mt. Tsukuba, "Tsukuba-san-jinja"
and the Great Buddha (1252) at Kamakura.
Combining the cultural with the culinary, we snacked on warm little custard-filled Buddha cakes they were selling just outside the temple.
We finished our week in Japan today with an Area training meeting where we met with five other Area Adviser couples, the Asia North Area President, Elder Michael T. Ringwood, Keiji's staff from the Area office and Craig Miller, vice-president of Family Search International along with three of his colleagues from Salt Lake City. We fly out to Guam tomorrow and are really excited to finally be there and get to work!
