私の小さな町！My Little Town.
An informative update on Jenn’s little town, coming to you directly from
…isn’t that fantastic? My teeny tiny town of 4,900 people actually has their own offical tourist association website! So allow me to share the ammenities and facilites Atsuma-cho has to offer for my entertainment! Hold onto your seats kids… it may be more fun than you could possibly hope to handle… !
First, we have the local inn and public bath! It’s only five dollars to relax in the onsen, or you can get 12 bath tickets for $50.00. I think I’ll spring for the $50.00 special! That way I can go once a month, something to look forward to!
Next, we have the Sports Complex! I can participate (for free, mind you!) in volleyball, badminton, and archery! When those activities aren’t furiously engaging the community, the gymnasium is open for basketball. I’m seriously considering learning traditional Japanese archery called kyuudou 弓道.
The last stop on our tour is the Star Dome! *ooooh!* *aaaah!*
Here one can play tennis and badminton, watch (or participate in) a soccer game, or use the exercise training room. I’m so glad to know there is a gym that I don’t have to travel far to use!
The site also included this adorable map of the entire town. And — !!!! To my immense surprise and delight, there is a 7-11. Oh thank heaven.
And the final thought is: yes it’s small, but I’m only going to be ten miles away from the sea!
