We left the hotel around 8:00 am because we have to drive long distance. After driving for a while it was raining hard.
Got through stopping rain area, we got rain again when we cross The Mississippi River.
We dropped at Subway Sandwich on the way.
Opened the wrapping, it’s like this. I made into two pieces by hands. This picture is before biting.
Including some break, we took 8 hours to arrive at Hot Springs. There was a bag of gift at our hotel rooms from the promoter. Hot Springs and Hanamaki City of Iwate prefecture Japan are sister cities and they exchange high school students. Both cities are famous for hot spring.
There was a patch of a tower looks like Tutenkaku tower which is in Osaka.
I found the tower of the patch over there through the window.
Zoom up! It is called Mountain tower.
Left the hotel and arrived at the venue.
Shonen Knife goods corner. We have Shonen Knife special chop sticks.

At the studio.
In front of the studio.
After that, we went to a Japanese restaurant ‘Osaka’ for dinner.
We took a picture with the chef. What a hair!
I like this green tea in a mug. It’s like powdered green tea at Japanese Kaiten Sushi. They say that basically in the West countries, holding dishes is a bad manner. Thus a spoon is served with miso soup.
Yakisoba was very good, too. Thanks a lot!
A presenter appeared on stage and explained the program of this show. Then he introduced the opening band.
A Ramen cater car opened beside the venue. Miyoko said that there were many empty bag of Maruchan Ramen. I wanted to try it.
