we met at around 9am and were done by around 10 lol. We then decided to nickname the mountain Takao-Chan as there wasn't really anything very large about it... Regardless of the mini mountain we had a great time!
After we climed Takao-chan we went to a restaurant on the mountain with giant Ebi tenpura. 'twas luvly!
Then we headed back to Tomoko's home where we hung out drinking beer and eating birthday cake! Great end to a great day IMO.
Tomoko, her husband and Aya bought me a Yukata set for my birthday, which I really didn't expect after all the food and booze. Naturally I was really happy, totally chuffed ^^.
I'm sure I've done something wrong while putting this yukata on. My waist looks insanely slim. I remember when the gaggle of ladies fitted me into my Kimono, they added towels and padding into my waist area as they said my waist was too small. However I have no idea where or how to to stuff sponges and towels into this thing!
