I wake up much earlier than expected - I guess my body clock isn't quite set. Eventually everyone gets ready for the day while I watch a little TV, which seems to be a Japanese morning show like Regis & Kelly. They're explaining how to clean out and organize your reizoko (refrigerator) in great detail. The commercials are hilarious, too! They keep showing one for a "personal bug repellant device" - a little box that you wear on your waist. Matt makes single cup drip coffees for Jonathan and I, and then we're off.
It's kind of a dreary, overcast day, and we keep putting our umbrellas up and down. We walk to the train station and use our gift cards to ride to Takarazuka, where we first have a morning bite at Mr. Donut. We have donuts filled with a sweet bean paste, and something called Pizza Pops, basically donut holes filled with cold spaghetti sauce.
