We went to a wedding reception of one of Keiko's friends. She was married to a Korean. They met at BYU Hawaii and speak English to each other, so as of now, they still can't talk to each other's parents very well. They had a similar sort of setup to our wedding reception, except much bigger.
The groom, bride, and Chiemi
They had a traditional koto performance, among other traditional Japanese arts
We went to visit Keiko's grandmother. It is a bit of a drive. As long as we were out that far, we went to a sushi place famous for having gigantic sashimi. It's like 4 times the size of normal sushi, and it tastes great. You can pick out the fish you want to eat too. It's on these big wood planks so that you can cut the sushi since you can't eat it in big bites like other sushi.
Keiko's friends through us a wedding party. They got a us a cake and had decoration and had quite a big bash, with sushi and other various Japanese dishes. She has a group of 6 girls that were hired for there first job out of school. They have remained best friends since. I was impressed that they were all able to gather from different parts of japan they live in now, mainly because some of them have kids now. Keiko really had a great time.
