From Japan (Part 18): Kanuma

i found a few more pix from my Japan trip

Maiko’s dad made sure we stopped here on the way from the train station to the hotel. Maiko’s family really went out of their way to entertain us.

Maiko’s dad even found this inn called the Cycling Terminal for us to stay. They had a cycling theme to the lobby’s decor with a number of late ’80s cycling posters. Mainly, it’s a nice but basic Japanese hotel with tatami mat rooms and immediate proximity to some good cycling.

Later on, the family and a business partner’s family took us out to a yakiniku restaurant (think Japanese BBQ), and we ate outselves silly…I ate things that I couldn’t identify. I ate raw beef. It was all good…well maybe not the tripe and liver.

Right now Maiko is back in Japan with her family. I just want to thank you again!
