On my first day in Miyoshi me and Tomoko and Tomoko's mom drove to the Hiroshima Miyoshi Winery where we met up with Yukiko and her cousin to have lunch and go to the Ogenki Desku museum(I think thats what it was called). Then we had grape ice cream at the winery. While we were there we also went to a tea ceremony in the museum, which was really interesting. The tea was gross though, but I don't like tea, so maybe thats why. Then we went back to Tomoko's house where there was a summer festival going on next door for their community. So we went there with Tomokos parents and her brothers and her brother's friend. It was really fun, we ate potatoes and chicken and noodles and a hot dog on a stick. I also had a 'traditional japanese festival drink', which was really good. Then everyone got up and did a Japanese dance to a traditional japanese festival song, so I had no idea what it was, but I tried my best to get it right. It was really fun and I met some awesome people. Before we left the mayor of the town brought me to the podium they were on and gave me this big box with a lot of Japanese bath salts and soaps. It was a really cool experience.
