Land Of The Rising Sun | June 15, 2013

Konichiwa everyone! I just came back from the land where the most polite people on earth reside. I also got to see the grand Mt. Fuji up close!

20130615-092219.jpgI got some Japanese Befco (Beika Frontier Company) crackers for souvenirs and google translate them if anyone is doubtful of the ingredients.
