[Thursday 18th August]
Took a bit of a break from our travelling today, and as Junchan had the day off work, we spent the day in and around Sendai with her. The daytime was chiefly occupied with going to visit Matsushima - one of the "scenic trio" of Japan, which also includes Miyajima. The weather was pretty grey so we probably didn't really see it at its best - the pictures are mostly a little grey and disappointing. The weather matched my mood really, having had my recent job offer faxed through to Junchan's house the night before, I had a lot on my mind.
Had dinner with Junchan's family in the evening, back at her house. Spoke to her Dad, who is a dentist, about what is good and bad for your teeth, which is quite entertaining. I found him far less intimidating than I had imagined I would! Also learnt some Sendaiben (the local dialect) and drank plenty of sake.
