After the meal, Lucy and I took the bus back to Mito station, we were discussing how we would take it easy and chill the next day.... blablabla, until at Mito station we bumped into Dyar and Daniel who asked us if we would like to go on an impromptu trip down to Tokyo. hmmm... I had daikyuu (day off) the next day, and Lucy was there, so we were like OK!!
We picked up some road beers and Dyar drove us down to Moriya (where he lives). Dyar lives very close to Tokyo - so the plan was to get back to his (about midnight) and then head into tokyo early the next morning. Heres Daniel in the car on the way down:
Before heading to his apartment, Dyar decided that we should stop by his local shrine to pay our respects:
