Okinawan yakisoba. Soooo good!
So after the experience in Osaka, I woke bright and early to try to find my way to Nagoya. It took some effort and I went the wrong way....AGAIN, but I eventually made it to the JR station to get a Shinkansen ticket...except I had no clue what I needed! So I went to a window to purchase one where I inadvertently pissed off the attendant by not understanding everything he said. After apologizing I was on my way via Nozomi! It wasn't quite as posh as I expected but the doors totally opened Star Trek style! There was also plenty of leg room and it was a super smooth ride! Really not a bad way to get around. After arriving in Nagoya I met up with Eiko where she introduced me to Yuka, who introduced me to Saori.
My head started to vanish! Aiko didn't nothice.
Quite the chain! Eiko had to run so Yuka, Saori and I went to eat at Genki Sushi. A great little dollar-plate sushi bar where you order by touch screen and a small shinkansen brings your order to you! Afterward we went to Nagoya Castle, viewed the museum and sakura, and walked around a bit. I had origionally planned on spending only 3 days in Nagoya, but I got a call on the last day from my hotel saying they couldn't accommodate me! WTF? So after calling home to have a friend check hotels for me, I decided to stay in Nagoya for another 2 nights. During this time I met up with Eiko, who introduced me to Aiko, and the 3 of us went out for drinks or a bite on the last 3 nights. I also visited the Boston/Nagoya Museum of Fine Arts(which happened to be closed EVERY day without giving a reason), the Nagoya TV tower, Aquarium and a ton of other things. I had an amazing time, the best hotel ever, and met a lot of people.  I also walked....a LOT. Seriously, for someone who runs every day I was beat by the end of my time there! After looking around Japan, I decided that I would attempt to make Nagoya my new stomping grounds, since I had been looking for a city to train in next year and wanted to study abroad. So provided I can get a dojo to accept me, and a visa, I hope to be seeing a lot more of it next year!
