Okurayama and Shiroi Koibito Park

The next day, Maru-sensei's mother served us a western-style breakfast. It included fried eggs and bacon, but they were served mixed in with vegetables as well, so it had a little bit of a Japanese twist. It was very delicious of course, like everything Maru-sensei's mother served us.

After breakfast, we went to Okurayama Ski Jump Stadium, which was built for the Olympics that were held in Sapporo in the 1970s. It's not really the size of a mountain, but it has a ski-lift and the view from the top is pretty nice.

I liked the signs on the way up:

Don't swing the chair

Jumping off is prohibited

After that, we took a cab to the train station and then went to the Shiroi Koibito Park, where they have an all-you-can-eat cake buffet.

I didn't take pictures of all the cakes, but they were all pretty delicious.

After that we walked around a park and chatted until it was time to head back for the train. After we said goodbye, we got on and slept for most of the ride back to Yokohama.
