Wow! It has been a long long day. After everybody went home after the candle lighting service, I realized I did not have good photos for that. So in order to take just photos, I lighted all candles and then took pictures. That was good however I had to blow off all candles again and then I started to clean the temple. Honestly, it took me time more than I expected.
I was planning to clean the office, but I was sorry I had to give up.
This was the best I could.
At 7:00am, when the supermoon was about to set, I left for the airport. Because my Japanese class student was going to Fukuoka on the same day, his grandpa and he came to pick me up. To my biggest surprise, I knew his grandpa was someone I know. He used to come to my class. The island is supposed to be small, but I met him after 13 years absence.
9:15 a.m. the Hawaiian airplane left for Honolulu.
11:55 a.m., the airplane left HNL for Narita. I was super sleepy, but in order not to miss the food, I stayed up.
It was worth staying up. The food was very good and as soon as I finished eating, I fell aspleep. I think in order to sleep well in the airplane, it is sometimes good to stay up all night before boarding.
at 8:00 pm, I arrived at Narita airport. Japan time was 3:00 p.m. on August 12.
Then I left for Ueno at 8:58 pm and arrived at 9:34 pm. I holo^holo around Ueno until the next train come at 11:58 pm.
At 1:26 a.m., I arrived at Echigoyuzawa and changed trains again for Naoestu.
OH MY GOODNESS!!!!!!!!!
At 2:42 am, I realized I did ride too far past my destination. And now I am thinking what I can do.
