Here are some photos of the past few days in California and Japan. So far we played three soccer games (one against the Biola girls' club in California, one against a junior high boys' team in Japan, and the third against a 50+ men's team in Japan); led one clinic for young girls (ages 6-16); played games with the church's AWANA club; dressed in Kimonos; and watched the Iwata vs. Kobe game.
Interesting cultural fact I've learned: In Japanese restaurants, they don't tip and they don't use napkins.
Strangest food I've tried: Nato, fermented bean curd.
Most interesting experience so far in Japan: Sitting in the electric pool in the sento (community bath house).
Have a Happy 4th of July!
