American Day 2012


Yep, today is American Day in Misawa, Japan.  Japan has a lot of festivals - and today was like most festivals. Lots of food on a stick, performers at various spots, lots of crowds out enjoying the day....the difference is that today many of the units, booster clubs etc on base had food booths too....a touch of America at it's "best" for our neighbors....BBQ, hot dogs, chips, cookies, rice krispy treats, funnel cakes etc. We opted for the Japanese food as the lines were crazy long for the American food. LOL 

Another highlight of the day was a LOT of Harley Davidson riders...in fact the parade was basically motorocyles.  This one caught our fancy....

Yes, those ARE long horns, leather and a wagon...."OR or Bust" in Japanese....

Thought you would enjoy knowing that House Hunters International was about Misawa last night! It was interesting to see your community from a different perspective.

I want to be able to watch that. Christine attends PWOC (our women's group) but I've not been able to get it to show over here - always tells me there are copyright issues.
