We just have to say, we have the most awesome fans ever. Seriously, you guys rock. While we love you all, you'll get to see who currently has the ranking of #1 fan in just a bit...

Our next few days in Japan involved a lot of great food... oh, and a typhoon.

(If you missed the first part of the trip, you can listen here!)

Day 3

(Our 3rd day together was Allison's 5th day in Japan, which is why the day numbers might seem a little off sometimes...)

So first things first, Allison just had to try the Shiro Cream Puff from Beard Papa's that Rachael had been raving about.

Made with tapioca flour and a cream cheese filling, she was instantly obsessed.



Since Rachael and her family got to spend our day 5 (a Sunday) seeing old friends at church, Allison and Son ventured to Don Quixote, which we describe as "Wal-Mart on crack".

Seriously.



Then we went to Bassanova! Green curry soba for the win!



But the much more exciting part of this was getting to meet Kate!!!

We're still flipping out over the fact that we get to not only say that we have fans as cool as Kate, but that we have a #1 Fan!

Kate, you rock, and we think you're totally awesome.



Day 4

This was the day we attempted to go Tsukiji fish market.

And by attempted, we mean what actually happened was a comedy of errors where Allison and Son got stuck in their hotel, got slightly lost, then ran around looking for Rachael (whose alarm hadn't gone off!)

Ah well. At least it was a pretty morning.



So after we all got a little more sleep, we headed off to Hamarikyu park where Son did a bit of filming...



And then we took the waterboat from Hamarikyu, up Sumida river, to Asakusa where walked up the street to Sensoji temple.





On our way, we got to try all sorts of goodies - taiyaki, sweet potato age manju, and (of course) ice cream!









After letting the girls play in a park a bit, it was off to Kaikaya by the Sea for dinner - a place that Rachael has been RAVING about for ages.



We finally got to try the ginger ale in copper cups that she goes on and on about...



And happily, the tuna ribs (along with the rest of the meal) lived up to the expectation that she had set.



(The buttery fried goatfish was another huge winner in that meal!)



Day 5

Did we mention it was typhoon season when we went?

Yeah.

And like any sane person would do, we went to the zoo on the day the typhoon was supposed to hit. And dragged poor Kate with us!



Zoo food in Japan is surprisingly good, for a ridiculously inexpensive price.



Allison's maple syrup-filled pancakes with blueberry jam were fantastic, and the chicken karaage that Rachael got for the girls was crazy good.
