Golden Week Adventures 2015 Day 4 (Part 1) Family Tomb, Fifth Avenue, and on the road to Shichinohe / ゴルデンウィークアドベンチャー 2015年 四日目(パート1)お墓参り、五番街と七戸行き

It's now Day 4 of our Golden Week holiday.  My brother-in-law's family had the day off today so the first order of business was to go pay respects to my wife's grandmother. 


The Family Tombstone / 先祖代々のお墓
The Family Crest / 家族の門
We then went to this shopping mall to go in search of something called andama (sweet snack that reminds my wife of her childhood).
This is what we went in search of.  Unfortunately, we couldn't find any.  Apparently to be found only in Aomori Prefecture.
And since we could not find the sweets my wife was looking for, we headed to one of her favorite cake shops that she used to frequent.  A placed called [Fifth Avenue].
So much to choose from.  Can you guess what I decided on?

I chose the blueberry cheesecake.  How can you go wrong?
僕が選んだのはブルーベリーチーズケーキ。 間違いなく美味しいでしょう。

And my wife and I shared a cheesecake.

Our next stop was going to be this ramen shop that my wife and I always look forward to going (aside from the one that serves curry milk miso ramen).  We were going to a ramen shop called Asari which serves this really spicy tamanegi (onion) ramen.  But there was a really long line so we skipped that for the time being.  My brother-in-law made the suggestion of heading to Shichinohe to ride on a Rail Bus which only runs once a year.  Now that sounded kind of interesting and so we were heading off to Shichinohe.
On our way to Shichinohe.
And our holiday continues...
