Leaving Japan

Because we are PCSing/Permanent change of station "Moving" in August. I needed to come back to the states to have our little guy. Its a little sad because Joe could not come back with me. He will meet up with me in a few months for the birth. Joe dropped me off at the Air Port and I had to say goodbye to him and Japan. What a whirlwind these last 3 years have been!
Sad face ... I hate leaving Joe.

Farewell Dinner

Right before I left Japan we had a Farewell Dinner with our some of our friends at the Officers Club. One last Italian Night! Its sad to have to say goodbye. I sure all of our paths will cross again!

Day 8

After many days walking I wasn't sure how much more I could do... up until this point I hadn't walked since October so needless to say I was tuckered out. BUT I really really wanted to go to Nikko since we had never been there. We decided to drive instead of taking the train I am so glad... that means less walking. The drive was about 3 hours. On the way there we had a little problem with our Tire. We were so blessed because we were right by an exit and a shop that could fix our tire. It was kinda scary but it all worked out great. Nikko was beautiful. We saw some amazing shrines and a beautiful waterfall. We also ate at a fun little Ramen shop.
The Tire with metal wires coming out... so crazy

I don't know why we were taking pictures of bathrooms but we did... they were the really gross ones too... normally bathrooms are so so so clean in japan and really high tech
There was a festival outside the Ramen shop
