gusto

On our last day in Japan, my mom and I headed into Takamatsu by ourselves taking the train. There’s a local gift shop that seemed perfect for buying gifts that would be different than the usual ones from the airport. We forgot this is the countryside though so the train only comes every 20 minutes! We ended up running to the station and just made it seconds before the doors closed.

It was well worth the trip though since we found good food presents. Unfortunately, it wasn’t the best location for lunch since the main shopping area was a little too far to walk through. So we decided to go to Gusto, a family restaurant kind of like Denny’s but with a bigger menu, to eat something small. My mom chose strawberry mascarpone pancake and I went with coffee jelly. It was cheap but way too sweet. I felt nauseous afterwards. But finally my first experience at a family restaurant in Japan!

We realized the train only comes once an hour after noon and hurriedly went back to the train station. And when we got off, we realized Kamado (a wagashi store) would have been a better place for us to have tea…


日本最後の日、今度は電車で、お母さんとまた高松に行きました。栗林公園にある香川の名物などが売ってる店があるので、そこで空港よりは違うお土産を買おうと思いました。でも田舎なので、電車が頻繁に来ないことをすっかり忘れ、二人で走ってギリギリ電車に間に合いました。

いいお土産が見つかったので、行ってよかったです。でも場所的には商店街から微妙に遠かったので、お昼を食べる場所がいまいちなかった。なのでガストでちょっと軽いものを食べることにしました。お母さんはイチゴマスカルポーネパンケーキで私はコーヒーゼリー。安いけど甘すぎて、あとで気持ち悪かった。でも初めてのファミレス!お母さんは何十年ぶりだったので、飲み物などがセルフサービスになっててびっくりしてました。

そして電車は一時間ごと来ることに気づいて、急いで駅に戻りました。降りたら、駅の横にかまど…そっちの方がよかったかも…
