Swings and Sushi

Spring is here! It was so warm yesterday, so we went to the park with our friends. We told them we had yet to eat sushi in Japan, so afterwards they took us to their favorite kaiten zushi (conveyor-belt sushi) place.
Fox and I on the kids' rope:

Cash stands in awe of the older kids going down the big slide. He's wearing Kizzia's strawberry vest, since we forgot his coat.

The famous fugu sushi. Fugu is pufferfish, and if it's not prepared properly, you'll die. One bit of poison can kill a grown man in half an hour. You need a special license to prepare it. It's a big deal to try it here and say that you survived eating the notorious fugu.

Fox eats and survives! I'm so proud of him, because he doesn't even like raw fish. He was a great sport.

The sushi place was neat, because you just sat down next to a conveyor belt and took what you wanted. Anything with Japanese mayo is good to me! Fox loved the grilled eel. At the end of the meal, the waiter comes and counts your plates, which are around $1 each.
