Weekend Update

Julie and I had an eventful weekend.  The Noheji Town Festival took place a few blocks from our apartment.  We took many photos, ate tons of takoyaki, and enjoyed getting to know more about the history of the town.  We’ll have a longer, more detailed post on the festival tomorrow (including photos).

Also, I found a Go club in Noheji!  Another ALT informed me that a small group meets in the community center every Saturday.  These men have probably been playing their whole lives so it should come as no surprise to hear that I was absolutely schooled.  Nevertheless they invited me back next week and even offered to loan me a board and some stones while we stay in Japan.

I’ll have a more detailed Go post later in the year.

In other news we also explored Aomori City a little more with another ALT, ate some great sushi, watched an American movie, and discovered a couple shortcuts for when we want to leave town.

All in all a great weekend.

Look for the following posts in the days to come:

  • Cell Phones
  • Television in Japan
  • Noheji Town Festival
