[Saturday 8th February 2014]
It seemed I had timed my departure from Tokyo rather well, as today there were news reports of travel chaos there, caused by a fairly severe snowstorm. There had been a bit of snowfall in Hiroshima too, but not enough to cause any major disruption.

I spent the morning catching up on my laundry after my week in Tokyo, and was pleased to be able to give my tweed suit a good airing out on the balcony - necessitated by all those smoky bars in Tokyo.

Ramen for lunch.

In the afternoon we went to visit Chie's Grandmother. She'd borrowed a slide from a friend for Erika to play with, and had set it up in one of the rooms of her house (it was a bit too cold to go outside). Erika seemed to really enjoy playing on it.

In the evening we had "agemono" for dinner - literally fried things. Chie had ordered some frozen vegetarian meat substitutes and we had some of those - kind of tonkatsu style "pork" cutlets, made from soy/seitan.
