The next morning, the streets had a new layer of snow which meant that some spots were super slippery.

Down the street from the hotel was Niizato Tofu.

They have been in business for over 60 years and besides tofu, sell freshly pressed tonyu (soy milk) for 100 yen a cup.

Mrs Niizato measures the soy milk using the square container and takes the soy milk out from that blue bucket.

Still warm and so delicious.

Definitely better than the packaged stuff we find at the markets.

Tsurushi bina and other decorations at the Tohno station.

When we arrived in Hanamaki, it was snowing steadily.

From there it was a short taxi ride to the airport.

It was my first time seeing them de-ice the wings...thank you!

We had a nice time in Akita and Iwate.

At least the weather was more cooperative this time around.

I hope you enjoyed our little adventure as much as we did.

always ♥ your adventures, but thank goodness the pilot didn't get on the intercom to tell everyone that the flight was cancelled due to snow!
