Second Day in Kisarazu

28 03 2009

We don’t have any transport yet, but will hopefully get bicycles from someone at the school who doesn’t need their’s anymore. So we had to do some serious walking to the shops for some more housewares, a rice cooker and more groceries.

With the council elections only one day away there were candidates driving around in cars with loudspeakers on top, shouting out their election promises. One of the candidates is promising to make the toll on the Aqua Line (bridge to Tokyo) only 800 yen. We hope he gets in so it’s cheaper to go across the bridge.

Although the sun comes out in the middle of the day, the temperature is really cold – 4 layers plus a scarf required! Benno had to translate the remote on the air-con before we could figure out the heat function. Soon it was cranked to 30 degrees.

The Japanese bread is very strange. A loaf of bread can contain only 4, 5 or 6 slices. The bread is thick but full of air and no crusts are included in the loaf.

A tanuki (Japanese racoon dog) is on all the water holes in the streets/footpaths.
