So today she took me to her university in Nagoya. She’s graduating in March, which means that she’s free of classes now, yeah the Japanese university system doesn’t make much sense to me. But she still has her university ID so she could still enter all student-only areas, and have me tag along.
After a quick tour of the campus and a sneak peek into one of the university’s too-boring-to-attend-according-to-Maiko lectures, we went down to the cafeteria to get some really cheap (¥ 350) and tasty Japanese food.
The university has a building that is 75 meters high, and is named Building 75, which has a top floor heated observatory with couches and a great view of Nagoya. Looking down on the neighborhood, I was slightly shocked when I saw the next-door cemetery which is immensely large. I’ve never seen anything like it! This picture only captures part of the gigantic cemetary:
A couple of hours later we went up to the observatory again, to tease the couple trying to be romantic up there with our giggles and babbles and to enjoy the beautiful night view:
After a long trip on three different trains, we ended up back in Inuyama just before midnight. Can’t wait to hang out with Maiko again! But first I’m going home for the holidays next week and after I return to Japan I have three Bon Jovi concerts to attend in Nagoya and Tokyo!
