Me at the gate

This morning, almost all group members were surprised by a bad news. Dzaki, one of the group members, was sick. He had uric acid. I think last night, all of us were overwhelmed by Indonesian food. I think Dzaki ate sate kambing (lamb) too much. This morning, he couldn't walk. Ibu Miyo took him to the hospital. So, we went Asakesa Temple accompanied by Hasegawasan.

Asakesa Temple was full of visitors. The location is downtown, I think. There was a giant lantern. I saw Hasegawasan prayed. Then, he offered me whether I wanted to know my forcast or not. Of course, I do not trust that. But, I wanted to know what was on the paper. So, I took a tiny roll of paper and I got a number. Then I took a paper in the drawer with that number. We read it.

Shopping at Asakesa Temple Promenade
It was good, so I could bring it home. If it was bad, I could leave it on the strings with other bad forcast.  

It was interesting, the temple was very closed with  a shooping promenade. I loved the situation. It was colorful. I like Japan. Everything is touched to beauty. Hm.... what I bought here.... a  pink small bag made of traditional Japanese fabric, pins for my friends, and a bag for my mother. I really wanted to buy moci. But, it was exensive and heavy.

We had lunch near Asakesa. We had tempura set again. Yippee... I love tempura. Hasegawasan looked tired. Actually, this morning he had to work at the office but now he had to take care of us.

After lunch, we visited Kitajimashibori. It was a small industrial business. They said small. But they made rocket fuel containers and huge parabola. All of us made our own plate made of steel. It was not easy! Ibu Miyo had joined us. If not, who would translate the explanation.

We had dinner at Indonesia Raya Restaurant. Another Indonesian food restaurant... But, now we were more careful. We didn't want what happened to Dzaki happened to us.
