New Year's Day in Japan

Jan 1st, 2007: Okayama City (Taddy's home city) in Japan

On New Year's Day, we went for the bort riding in the morning.

It was a nice day for boat riding in the sea.

This is about $30 lunch box for New Year's special.

Can you tell this is in the shape of a boar?

On the boat, they had the traditional rice cake making event.

First time for Fiona, Jeff and Soma to try it.

By the way, this is the boat we rode.


We went to see The Great Seto Bridge in the afternoon.

Jeff, Shanon, Fiona, and Taddy tried Helicopter ride.


We are in the sky!

The view from the sky was just awesome!!

Landing on the ground.

"My..., my feet..."

By the way, the helicopter ride was only 10 minutes long, but costed $40 per person...

In front of Seto Inland Sea.


We went to Kurashiki area in the evening.

The Bikan district of Kurashiki is famous area for sight seen.

19th-century warehouses are along quay in this area.

Many of them host merchants of artistic local wares.


Well, this is how we spent New Year's day in Japan.
