Akita Day 3: Nostalgic Places

I got my days mixed up on my blog a little bit. On the third full day in Akita I mostly stayed home and took it easy, but in the afternoon I decided to walk by myself to the station despite it being super hot. I could have taken a bus, but it was kind of confusing to read the bus information as it wasn’t a standard table and I’ve been running out of cash since the nail salon didn’t let me pay with a credit card. Although the station is over a mile away from the house, I was able to walk past nostalgic places. ブログで少し日付を勘違いしてすみません。秋田での丸3日目に家でほとんどゆっくりしましたが、昼に暑くても自分で駅まで歩くことにしました。バスで行けましたが、バス情報が普通の時刻表じゃなくてあまり分からなかったし、ネイルサロンでクレジットカードで払わなかったので現金がなくなりそうし、乗らなかったんです。家から駅まで1マイル以上ですが、多くの懐かしい場所を通りかかって良かったです。

I took the route that I had to take when I walked to the local high school every day. I still remember how I got lost coming home on the first day and how that made me remember the route very well. 地元の高校に通った時の路線を沿って歩きました。留学の間、1日目に帰宅した時よく道に迷って、この路線をよく覚えてきたという思い出をまだ覚えています。

On the way to the station, you have to pass these beatiful lotus flowers that everyone likes to take pictures in front of. Although it may be beautiful, if you look closely into the lotus fields you will see lotus seed pods and your trypophobia will resurface. Honestly they are just so disgusting looking that it is amazing that a beautiful flower blooms from something that looks like a holy hell. Google what I mean if you don’t believe me. 駅に行く途中で、多くの人々が前で写真を撮る美しいハスの花を通りかかります。綺麗でも、間近に見たらハスの花の種子があり、トライポフォビア再び現れます。美しいお花がいやらしい物から咲いていくなんて素晴らしいです。「ハスの花の種子」をグーグルで調べてみてよ….

I didn’t really do any shopping at the station unlike in previous years. It is funny how my tastes have changed and how the things I used to do in Japan I isn’t really do this trip. For example, I didn’t really hardcore play any claw games this year (minus the alpaca that my friend wanted me to try to get in Odaiba). I still have money left so I can do different thinks in the fall/winter! 過年度に対してこの旅にあまり買いませんでした。昔の好みの変化し、前に日本で楽しい活動を今回あまりしなくて、面白いです。例えば、友達がお台場でアルパカッソを取って欲しい時以外に、今年ユーフォーキャッチャーをあまりやってみませんでした。お金がまだ残ったから、秋と冬に楽しめます!

Instead I relaxed at Starbucks for most of the time and had this really good crushed orange frapuccino. It was expensive, but they don’t have these types of flavors in the U.S. Earlier this year in Urayasu I saw a strawberry one, but unfortunately I didn’t get it. 買い物の代わりにスターバックスでクラッシュオレンジというフラッペを飲みました。高かったけど、このような甘いフラッペをアメリカに売っていません。前に浦安でストロベリーデライトというフラッペを見ましたが、飲む機会がなかったんです。

It was a nice day to explore these places once again.
