Bella celebrated her 2nd birthday in Hawaii, so we decided to make it a tradition. Thanks to frequent flier miles and my sister (Aiyi), the travel agent, we were able to visit the islands again for her 3rd birthday. The title of Bella’s blog is “It’s All About Me, Me, Me!” which seems to be a constant mantra and it is no different when we are on vacation.

Since my sister is a travel agent, she likes to photograph our hotel rooms. The Hilton Prince Kuhio in Honolulu was recently renovated. It is a very nice hotel with breakfast, afternoon pupus (hors d’oeuvres) and 24/7 business center.

Hirosaki Sakura Festival

Ok, so I haven’t posted here in a while >< Haven’t really gotten out to do much for the last month or so since I’ve been on 12 hour Mid shifts, everything is always closed when I’m awake. But I’m back on Day shift, and last weekend K and I went to visit Hirosaki castle during the Sakura viewing festival. Oh, it was soooo beautiful, almost all the trees were in bloom. Pretty white blooms, and the traditional pink ones, and these delicate looking weeping willow like trees with pink blooms. I was really fun too, it was the first day of Golden week, which is a national holiday in Japanese for the whole week. It’s not really the whole week is just one holiday, there are 3 holidays during the week, so instead of having off, then on, then off again, the Japanese government make it a week long holiday.

The Sakura viewing festival is when people go out to a park or place with sakura trees, spread a blanket on the ground, and have a picnic lunch and usually some sake or beer and chill with family and friends. All the grassy areas on Hirosaki’s grounds were covered with blankets and people chilling. And there were traditional bands set up around the area that would play for everyone. There was also a parade of a hundred or so people playing drums, flutes, and cymbals.
There were tons of vendors too, with all sorts of foods like takoyaki (fried octopus dough balls), yakisoba (noodles), ramen, and tons of desert foods. There were also tons of booths that sold toys, and yes, they had little kids toys like plastic katanas and noisemakers, and whatnot, but they also sold PSPs, Gameboys, PS2s, Wiis, etc… plus games for all of them. They even had goldfish scooping, and I got to watch a couple of kids trying that. They also sold little baby turtles at some booths, with little aquarium sets.

They had a haunted house that I went through, it was just like our cheesy carnival haunted houses, but they had Japanese monsters as well as some of our monsters. They even had one guy dressed up as the lantern monster with the tongue hanging out. It’s called a “surprise lantern” but I can’t remember how you’d say that in Japanese. I ran out of film before I could take a picture of the front of it.

There was a Shinto ceremony going on at one of the shrines there, but K and I didn’t want to go in and do something rude unknowingly.

K and I are going to see a Kabuki show on the second, and I can’t wait D We won’t be able to understand any of it, but it looks like it’ll still be a lot of fun to watch.
