A camping trip

Almost a month ago, several ALTs got together for our annual HAJET meet and camping trip. We headed out to the campground at Shinshinotsu for some fun camping times.

Because the weather was fairly cold for camping. Several of us headed out to Costco to do some shopping.

We also made a quick stop at Blue Seal (one of the best Japanese ice cream shops) on our way. Yum!

L also came along, but she was not tempted by the rest of our less-healthy ice cream ways. She went for fruit juice instead.

A little too decked out for camping, don’t you think?

It wouldn’t be camping without roasted marshmallows.

Despite all the fun. We had to say goodbye to some awesome friends that night. S deemed herself as the big sister of practically every ALT in Hokkaido. We will miss her a lot.

When we woke up on Sunday morning, it was time to pack up. K thought he might carry his tent all the way home . . . then he realized he had a 10 hour drive ahead of him.
