Oita Day 2 of 14

Wednesday, I woke up with the 6 AM town alarm and got ready for my second day off. I ate something simple for breakfast and left around 8 AM. When I went outside, it was so cloudy, but by late afternoon the town was beautiful!

I walked further into town and found more souvenir shops. Late afternoon I finally found a kakigori shop, after looking in Kyoto, and got 100% strawberry shaved ice. They topped it with mint and condensed milk, but I think it can be done at home with some out-of-the-box thinking and a freezer.

I continued on with my walk and found some interesting cars to post on Dad's website, Dig My Car.

I got home and had something from the cafe fridge for dinner. This time I made sure to take a photo. Even reheated, this karaage fried chicken was so delicious. I'm determined to get the recipe!

I finished eating and set off to find the nearby lake before my bath! Here are some videos from my walk.

Look at the giant bamboo forest!

Beautiful Kinrin Lake at sunset.

Today was a little bit more leisurely. I enjoyed some walks around town and got to know the neighborhood. Good night, Yufuin!
