Continue from my previous post, we went to Kimitsu to learn how to make Ujyou toothpicks. These are the toothpicks that are usually used for japanese sweets and desserts.
All the different types of toothpicks displayed in the shop.
I thought it will be super easy to make my own toothpick but I was so wrong. We have to be super focused and the cut has to be very precise. I tried a few and still can’t produce any decent looking ones.
Have to be very careful with the cutter/knife too as it is quite sharp.
Eventually, I brought my ugly toothpicks back together with the ones that the teachers gave us! Luckily I got some good looking ones otherwise Simon is going to laugh at me. LOL.
After the session, we went to this local mart where they have really yummy milky icecream. This place was not reflected on my itinerary so I am unable to tell you where this place is located at.
Very beautiful flowers and scenery!
Joanna got a few XL dorayaki from this mart and Sydney and I just got ourselves two puddings. LOL.
I got one for Simon too!
We didnt try the icecream even though we have discount vouchers but we bought puddings instead.
It’s very sweet and delicious! 🙂
After our satisfied treats we hopped back into our tour bus and finally it’s time to go to our hotel for the night!
For the first night, we stayed at Ryuguji Spa Hotel Mikazuki. With large pool and onsen complex! A pity I was having my period other wise I would have been be able to share with you my onsen experience here. 🙁
This is our room number by the way! Sharing room with Joanna and sydney!
Went to our japanese style room and this is the amazing view from our room!
We had some free time before dinner but we were too tired to explore, so we ended up resting in the room, unpacking our luggages and washed up.
Messy room! HAHAHA. And me wearing the yukata because its time for dinner!
We went to the upper level for the hotel buffet.
Wide variety of food for us to choose from!
chinese food, desserts.
SASHIMI – my favourite but there were bones in the fish. :/
Giant clam! The cakes and pastries were very nice too! I love the cheesecake.
And a selfie with the yukata again! ^^ i know i know, bad lighting and tired face. Lol.
So this is how my day 1 in japan ended, yummy buffet dinner and funny midnight conversation with the girls. Cant wait for november, claire is going crazy. Lol.
Shall work on Day 2 next. Thank you for reading! ^^
