Happy Father's Day

I spent my Father's Day with Miho and her parents in a beautiful restaurant and pottery complex in the mountains of Soeda. They treated us to an incredible lunch that easily puts Gonpachi to shame; we had our own private air conditioned room with ROTATING CHAIRS, a seemingly bottomless supply of quality green tea, and of course (ha) course after course of wonderful delicacies. After lunch Miho's dad, an artistic man of few words who once carved a gigantic Buddha out of wood and who grows his own vegetables, took us on a mini pottery tour. Apparently the resident artist is well known for his creations using rare red clay.

I think I'll let the photos speak for themselves.

P.S. Tell your dad you love him today!


  1. Um wow. Your Father's Day was way cooler than mine. I woke up on the couch at 9am, then ate and went back to bed until 2pm, called Dad, fell back asleep till 6pm, took a bath, went out for sangria and now I'm headed back to bed.

    Hope all is well!


  2. In return I have completely wasted my Monday and yours is just beginning.


What's up?
