The last stop before Tokyo on the 7-hour bus ride was the Ebina Service Area. That's where I snapped this great picture of the sun about to rise.
When I finally made it back, there were a few things I needed to do right away. Visit my nieces!!
And feed them with the famous Futaba manju's I brought back with me.
Then I needed to remind myself of home.
And share a taste of Kyoto with my coworkers.
I finally got rid of my cough. But to stay safe I ate this negi-meshi-chazuke to soothe my throat.
After work, Shuga, Boom, and I had a little reunion party at Sukiya. Man, it's been months since we've been here. haha.
I will miss Kyoto, but home is home and it feels good to be back.
