We arrived in SLC around 3pm. American Airlines has no direct flight to SLC from Osaka so we had to transsfer 3times.

Osaka-Narita-Dallas-Salt Lake City

It was around 30hours total travel time. About the same as the same last time. It's not so easy but I never seem to get tired of this because I love to travel so much!!!

Michael, who I met last time at the hostel picked us up at the airport. We talked a lot on skype after we met and got to know eachother a little better. Anyway we met again in SLC as we wanted to share some times together. This time,he offered to take us on a road trip to Southern Utah. And he suggested to visit the Arches National Park which I missed  visiting last time. How nice of an offer,I'd love to go to there of course.

I brought Kimono for Michael
 Our plan is to stay at a hotel for 2days and then go to his house,then we will head to Southern  Utah. Sounds very nice!

He brought us to the Japanese restaurant close to the hotel. It was still snowing and cold though.It was a  good stretch though after sitting a long  time in the airplane seat! The restaurant was quite faithful to Japanese sushi. We just tried a salmon sushi before we each ordered a dish. It was so nice.

During our stay at the hotel we spent a lot of fun time together playing the Monopoly game. Sometimes Michael played it with only Ayano(My daughter) while I was sleeping. My daughter can't speak English but they looked like they were communicating well, as I woke up to loud laughning from them.

We cooked Takoyaki@his home
   

2nd day, my daughter and I went to the Gateway mall for shopping. Luckily they were having a sale so we got a lot of clothes almost for 5-10$ a piece.

3rd day,we left the hotel and moved to Michael's house. We did some shopping for our road trip to Moab. I bought a nice pair of boots for walking on the snow or hiking, and we had to find an octopus, as I brought a Takoyaki-machine(which is a cooker of special Osaka food.) I brought some materials for this too.  We made Takoyaki at his home that night.It was fun.
