Hamamatsu And Us

Some random pictures here and there...

Owakudani boiling volcano valley...
where they boil their eggs
they are black in color.

i climbed to the highest part where
they sell the darkened eggs...

people.. enjoyed eating the eggs..

Out of curiousity, I bought one packet
inside the packet, there were 5 eggs
cost 500 yen,
that means one egg cost RM4!!!

Good news is after eating one egg,
life span will be longer by 7 years... lol...
but don't eat 2... will lead to cholesterol...

at the foot of the volcano...

my girl wanted the egg yolk ice cream

back to hotel in Hamamatsu..

we have to wear kimono that night...

buffet dinner was good
japan's king crab were abundant...
