A weekend filled with bowling, karaoke, the beach, and malasadas!  We showed off our bowling skills at Round One, ate Marshmallows on the beach, sang Japanese songs in a castle, and ate malasadas at a shop in Akita city.
The bowling centers here in Japan are really interesting!  They are interesting for two facts:  Number One, you get your shoes out of a dispenser.  Each size has its own dispenser.  Number Two, they leave these bowling pin suits on the side for you to wear if you are bored or just want to become a mascot for those playing.

The beach was dirty again.  It’s weird how quickly the trash accumulates.  It was only a week ago when we did the beach clean-up, and yet there was trash everywhere again.  This time I went with a few friends who were either from Hawaii or studied abroad in Hawaii.    It was a lot of fun as we made another campfire and grilled marshmallows and wieners.

After the beach, we went straight to the malasada shop where we ate some delicious malasadas.  I was surprised they had this shop there, but leave it to Keane, one of the guys from Hawaii, to know all the Hawaii-related things about Akita.

At the end of the night, we went to a castle where we sang into little sticks called Mike-row-fones, and drank from an endless river of soda!  I learned some really great Japanese songs on that day.  Below is a song called “Sora mo toberu hazu.”  I’m not too sure, but I think most Japanese people would know of this song.  I wouldn’t be surprised… it’s a great song!
