So our family has started a new adventure in Misawa, Japan!  We are currently living on Misawa Air Base, in Misawa Japan.  Japan is a beautiful country with lots of things to see and do. I will try to keep this blog updated with our fun travels and pictures.  Here are a few to start with:

Steak flavored Doritos?  They have some of the weirdest flavors and combinations of flavors I have ever seen before!  Someone mentioned they had seen Pepsi flavored Cheetos the other day....not so sure about that one :/
The Japanese are kind of obsessed with Kit Kats, so far I have seen strawberry, green tea, and we are currently looking for the rumored pumpkin flavored ones!  I love pumpkin flavored anything.  Adam has taken a liking to the many cream filled pastries they have here, I haven't taken any pictures yet though.  They are quite delicious!  

This is the building you will see directly out the front gate, we haven't been to it yet, but it looks interesting.  During the day the street in front of it is one way, but after 10 pm it turns into a two way street for some reason.  Not quite sure why though.  

Some random road signs, it's a little disconcerting to not be able to read what they say, but common sense tells you what most of them are.  Adam and I both took a short course to obtain our Japanese drivers license, cars drive on the left side of the road here, and the steering wheel is on the right side of the car-crazy!  On base, you can go LEFT on red.  Adam has done most of the driving, he's pretty much a pro at it, just like everything else ;) I have driven a few times, and it's not as horrible and scary as I thought it would be.  You have to be much more aware of your position on the road, I've almost hit the curb a time or two.  Off base driving is different than on base, the streets are narrow and tiny, everyone's cars are much smaller, and the signs are different too.   
Well, that's all I've got got now, just little snippets of our everyday lives, I've been keeping a written journal also, and this weekend the kids will start theirs.  Hopefully this weekend we will do some more off base exploring, maybe some apple picking, or something else fun.  I will update next week.
