After a long flight of watching tons of movies, and very little sleep, I was greeted at the airport by Dorrie who’s in charge of my training and orientation. Jeffery, my language supervisor went to pick up Bethany, another new missionary with our agency, at the other terminal at Narita. After meeting with everyone, they took us straight to the onsen (public bath house) for dinner and a bath. There’s usually an area at the onsen before you go in the bath to get some dinner or ice cream. Since I’d been sitting for 10 hours straight and they fed me twice on the plane I was feeling like something light. I chose a a mini shake (salmon) bowl with miso soup. It was perfect, as was the onsen.
…of course, after the onsen we went across the street to the ice cream shop. (Sorry, no picture. The one I took didn’t turn out so good.)
