This Monday was a holiday in Japan. So we continued our trip. Today we went to Hawaiians spa and resort, a water park fed by the most productive hot spring in Japan. This used to be a coal mining town, but the CEO realized that people wanted to go to Hawaii but could not afford it, so he built a piece of Hawaii in Fukushima, where the climate was too cold to grow palm trees. So he built the biggest dome north of Tokyo, taught the coal miners wives to put on a daily hula show, and the rest is history. When they had to shut down after the 2011 tsunami, and again this year due to COVID-19, they just expanded the facilities. And the customers are coming.
Breakfast: The most sumptous mix of different flavors available, with rice and the local "imoni" soup from various root vegetables and pork.
Lunch: Japanese buckweat noodles with tempura (alhough I only got one piece, the kids ate the rest).
Snack: No snack today, we were too busy playing in the pools.
Dinner: Buffet of various Japanese- and Japanese-inspired dishes. Always impossible to make one choice but one: Too much.
Todays UA reading: 7.7 mg/mL. Well, yesterday was a pretty low-purine day, despite the magnificient dinner.
