2nd week in Japan 帰国2週目


On 16th June, my mom and I drove to Yuzawa city, Niigata, where is home of my dad and I grew up and saw my grandparents, my cousin, and my aunt. Fortunately, even after the divorce of my parents, I get to see them from time to time and have a great time as their grandchild. 
As you can see the photos below (click "SEE MORE"), my hometown has full of nature, clear air and water, best rice in Japan (because of water), and people that make you feel home. Here's always nice to come back to relax (or maybe to forget work haha). 
My mom and I had as late lunch/ early dinner "Hegi-soba" which is popular and famous soba in this region and well known for a large portion with tempura that's a must. 
It tastes simply aaaaamazing and heaven. 

On 19th, my mom, Haruka, and I went out to a Hawaiian restaurant for dinner. My mom and Haruka have found that restaurant after they moved there the past February and haven't tried it yet. So we gave it a try and enjoyed it. Enjoy photos :) 

6月16日に、母と新潟の湯沢に行ってきました。ジジ・ババ・おばさんと従弟(息子)にあえて楽しい時間を過ごしました。幸運にも、両親が離婚したのにも関わらずこうやって私が帰国すれば父方の家族に会える環境があって幸せだな〜なんて思います。孫だからいいしね。
少しずつ変わりつつある田舎も、やっぱりこうして帰って来ると「あ〜懐かしい〜。変わってない〜」なんていろいろ思い出しながら田んぼ道歩いたりとかして、子どもの頃にすっかり戻ったような気分になります。甘い空気、水、魚沼の米。田舎なんて最悪なんて文句たれつつも、今思えば最高の環境で育った。帰って来る場所があるっていいね。
遅い昼ご飯兼早い夕飯てことで、地元で有名なへぎ蕎麦を食べました。量が多くても有名。腹くっちぇー。

19日は家の近くにあるハワイアンレストランではるかと母と3人で夕飯。
この後勢いで横浜屋でラーメン笑 ちゃんとお腹空いてないと美味しさが薄れるね。次回は空腹時に来ます。。
