After returning from Kyoto, we met up with Deniz’ cousin and husband to enjoy dinner for our last night together n Japan. After the full day we decided to make things easier and explore the options in the tunnels that were off the lower level of their hotel. We found a nice tempura restaurant a each chose an assorted dish of vegetables and shrimp. I had been focusing so much on sushi I realized that I had not really tried tempura in Japan. It was a very good meal. Unfortunately, due to being tired, hungry and enjoying the company of Deniz’ cousin and husband I forgot to take pictures. But I very much enjoyed our last dinner in Japan for this trip!
We then went up to their hotel room to chat a bit more. We would both be leaving the next day to our respective home countries. Ours was earlier so we wished each other a safe trip home and grabbed a cab back to our hotel. This would be the first rude cab driver we encountered. He not only drove like a maniac but upon reaching our hotel he grunted and pointed angrily at the amount display on his dashboard. I paid, he returned my change, I thanked him in Japanese, he said nothing and we left. Very surprising for Japan but bad apples are to be expected everywhere.
