Day trip to Okayama to visit Chie's friends Testu-san, Hiroshi-san, along with Tetsu-san's wife Kanako-san, and their baby Shin-chan, who is roughly the same age as Erika.

The kodama shinkansen at Hiroshima station.
Erika's first time on the shinkansen!
Me eating some cereal on the shinkansen.
Lunch at a tofu restaurant in Okayama called Okabe.
Some raw tofu...
...and some deep fried tofu.
This is momotaro, a character from a Japanese story based in Okayama.
Chie, Erika, Tetsu-san and Shin-chan.
Erika and Shin-chan on the sofa.
Three Dads and their babies (in Hiroshi-san's case his kids were at home, so he's holding this teddy bear instead).
Two Mums and their babies - this is Kanako-san, Testsu-san's wife.
At Okayama station again, waiting for the shinkansen back to Hiroshima.
We had a whole carriage to ourselves!
Chie and Erika running down the aisle.
