Monday was a holiday and day off of work, so we went to the Tanbara Lavender Fields to see some flowers! Tambara is famous for being a Lavender Park in summer, and a skiing place in winter. I enjoy going there in all seasons! It was a beautiful day, and on the way we stopped for lunch at a fun place that allows you to catch your own fish to cook! We didn’t have time for that, but it sounded like fun for another time.

Getting to the park, and as promised there were tons of flowers in bloom! Since Tanbara is a ski resort in the winter, so you could take a lift up to the flower area, but we chose to walk since the day was nice. About half of the lavender was in bloom.
Tired but happy, we drove to the big Aeon mall in Takasaki since I wanted to go yukata shopping before fujimatsu. I found a TON of awesome yukata, but finally decided on one! Poor Kenji, he doesn’t go shopping with me often… he told me “I thought you’d take 20 minutes! How long could it take?!” *shakes head* I supposed I should have warned him! But I think it was worth it!
