Japan is so fun!!! / by tina gonsalves

First we got in a train for forty minutes. Then we got out of the train. we went to the exit and we met a old friend called Hiroshi. I couldn't remember Hiroshi but couldn't because i saw him when i was 2 and i'm 10 now we went to his house and it was pretty huge.

The next day was so much fun we went to heaps of candy shops and a huge pond with lotus plants like the whole pond was field with them. We went to a Japanese restaurant we had a lot of Japanese food like dumpling,ramen, miso soup, sushi, and soba noodles. I love Japanese food because its so tasty. The ramen soups are my favourite because the soup has so much flavour and the noodles are so good.

We had lots of candy - big teddy candy lollies as big as my hand. Sour lollies that has grape flavour and watermelon flavour. They also had vending machines which were really good. In Australia there is not much vending machines, but in Japan they are everywhere. In the train stations we had to have a Japanese card to let us travel on the public transport. I could also use this for the vending machines. I was a little naughty and would get chocolate milks without asking mum. But it tasted so good! 

The transport was really good and easy. Trains and buses. We also walked to some places as well. There were second hands shops that could sell electronics really cheap. Ipads could be so cheap. We eat great donuts at Mister Donuts. Mine was all chocolate icing with a chocolate buns. 

We went to the zoo that was huge. We first went in and I thought it was small but then we looked at the map and we only did half the place. We saw nearly all the animals in the world from Madagascar to Australia, to China. There was a small animal that was half sugar glider and half kangaroo. I loved the zoo. Hugo loved the animals, he was so occupied.

He stayed at Hiroshi's house. It looked like a japanese ninja house.The beds were really hard on the floor, but I love hard beds. I slept very well. One day I woke up at 10 in the morning! Hiroshi's mums name was Hari san. Harisan was really sweet. When we left mum was crying and harisan was crying. Hugo loved harisan. It was like she was his grandma. Harisan got very active with Hugo. 

Tokyo is amazing. Because it has everything that I love. I didn't really love vending machines as I had never used them before, but I loved them in Japan. Tokyo is amazing because the food is so good. We didn't have any duck, but it was still good. Duck is my favourite meat. 

hiroshi and me made a ring and now i know how to make a cool ring but is so difficult.

also we went to a local festival and it was fantastic i loved it. also i did a game and i won these candy jelly lolly pop things. then we went back home and went to sleep.

It has brazz inside and silver on the outside When it has the spiral you can see gold on the inside. Hiroshi showed us a lot of places in tokyo. But when he was working, we hopped on the subway ourselves. We didn't get lost. Its a very easy subway.

this is the work shop were we made the ring, but it was so hard to make the ring because you have to start with the wax to model it first. I have never made a ring before. It was really fun, but difficult.

This is in the train station. The trains come every minute or so. There is lots of different lines, so you get on a few trains to get to where you want to go.
