Girl’s Night Out!

It’s Saturday night:

Saturday was a rough day as mentioned in previous posts. Luckily, a girls’ night out was already planned.

Our first stop was this delicious restaurant:

Where we had nomihodai which is kind of “drink buffet”.

Afterwards, we decided to hop on a forty minute train ride and head to the theater to see “Kimi No Namae Wa: Your Name” and it was as good as rumors had said.

This movie is not only beautifully animated, the story is gripping and powerful.  Halfway there is a shocking twist revealed that had my friends and the audience members audibly gasp.  Several times the movie had people bawling.  While I only cried at the end, my friends were sniffling and wiping there eyes after the first half.

It’s reputation as “one of the most moving animated films in a long time” is very deserved.  I highly recommend checking out this movie.  Bring a tissue box if you do as your heart might break.

When I was in my twenties, I moved to Japan and met a man there. We embarked on our adventure through life and love. I have lived with him in Japan ever since. We want to start a family, but that is proving difficult. I struggle with infertility. We almost had a child, but that ended in tragedy. Now we enjoy each day and hope that one day we'll hear the pitter-patter of little feet and the bubbly laughter of a child. In the meantime, I enjoy writing, love, studying, traveling, and working. These posts are my thoughts and stories of my life here.
