"The curious are always in some danger. If you are curious you might never come home."
Over the course of the weekend while we were in Karuizawa for the Karuizawa International Choral Festival, we had a little free time away from rehearsing, performing, and workshopping (that's a word, right?). "A little" equals one afternoon and a couple hours here and there. On our full afternoon off, we rented bicycles and rode around the town, ate Japanese food, shopped, and took in the sights.
And now for a photo dump...
|There are vending machines (and bicycles) everywhere on the streets of every Japanese city we visited.|
|I like unique manhole covers.|

Awkward smiling/not smiling photos.
|Tempura udon. Yum.|
|Julie and I kneeling at a table we didn't eat at, holding tea we never drank. :)|
|Melanie and Angela biking through Karuizawa.|
|Ev and Cary on a tandem.|
|Gerato. Not to be confused with Gelato.|
|Oh yes. It happened.|
|There were jars of jam and jelly in nearly every "souvenir shop."|
Next up: back to Tokyo and a concert in Kawaguchi.
