After the ever heavy breakfast, we headed towards Mt Aso ..
on the way there we made a pit stop because we got lost.
a station for battery operated cars to charge their batteries
and seeing that theres a souvenier shop selling all the different kinds of japanese Sweets, We loaded up the car with them!! Then, we continued on
Spot the bear
阿蘇山 - active for that day we couldnt go up
Horse meat skewers 🙂 YUMM
we bought a stick to try .. and surprisingly, it tastes like beef and lamb mixed together (if i really had to describe it). Slightly grainer version of the two combined together .
sweet potato mochi?
battery operated car recharging
We decided to head off somewhere else for lunch, since the whole area and museum seemed so touristy. So we just headed around found a ramen place. But sadly, this is one of the suckiest ramen that I ever had in the whole Japan trip. The broth sucked, and everything was just average ..
Sauces to add to ramen
sucky ramen : only the egg and char siew is nice
This was one of the better option – We all liked this better than the ramen
We (my family) eat innards .. like we go for bah kuet teh and we do order innards .. but .. this one was just mushy all the way .. and just had a weird smell to it ..
fried intestines - ordered by mistake
we were disappointed our first ramen of the trip turned out like that ..but because we were always caught up with the attractions and lose track of time, we always don’t make it in time for lunch .. so beggars can’t be choosers ;/
then we headed to the Takachiho [canyon Segawa Goka]
”]”]Really awesome! although do be warned to drive in and out of the place, the road is so narrow that only 1 car can pass at each time!! the turns are very very sharp! so do becareful!
Spot the Stalk!!
Huge!! long fish!
We think they keep these fishes for like freeing purposes
after the years of erosion
All crowding around the stall for warmth
and of course, to end off the journey before heading back to dinner:
