Japan: Iced Tea and Sushi

It’s 36 ℃ (96.8℉) here. I went out once today but since it was so hot, I decided not to go too far. Wouldn’t it be better if Japan started having afternoon off and open shops in the evenings and nights like Sardegna?

My knitting is going slow because of the heat. Also between the time when kids come back home to when they sleep is absolutely no rest for the adults. Sometimes it’s just better to take them out and let them run around in the mall…

They took ages chossing the ice cream...

They took ages chossing the ice cream... Of course they want the biggest and the most colourful ones.

I get so thirsty chasing around the kids so I go and buy a nice cool iced tea with tapioca inside.

The iced tea with tapioca (above pic) had colourful tapiocas inside. So I asked the shop person to give me the black ones so that kids won’t want to drink my stuff. But of course, when they see me gulping and quenching my thirst with this iced tea, they want it. Within a few seconds, my precious iced tea was in the kids stomach…sign.

They run around the mall and find Sanrio shop... (OMG!)

When they are tired of running around, they are hungry. So we decided to go to a giant sushi bar.

I have never been to this huge sushi bar before.

It’s huge and everything is automated. There is a TV touch-screen where you order food. You sit in a room with tatami floor. The main belt conveyer that bring the sushi has branches that leads to individual tables.

When your sushi is ready, our table data is scanned in the barcode. The plate is then delivered to our table.

The food is amazing. 😉
