Chris and I were thrilled when our new friends, Lars and Maud, invited us to go with them to Nagasaki for the weekend. Nagasaki is about two hours southeast of Sasebo. It was not only our first trip in Japan but also it was our first train trip. We woke up the morning we left to a snow covered city... it had snowed all night and it was absolutely beautiful!

|Chris' new friends!|
|We aren't in Hawaii any more... crazy to see snow on a palm tree!|
|We just had to stop and take a picture!|
|The octopus dough balls.|
|Our shoeless feet!|

|Our delicious food!|
After we ate, we went to our hotel and we were greeted with origami cranes and robes, so of course we had to pose for a picture (notice we were given slippers, too)!
|I know... we're goofy!|
