I managed to squeeze in a quick surf in front of the Grand Hotel in the morning before we got together with a bunch of friends that Aiko hula dances with for our New Year party. As is the way in Japan, seasonal food was the call and we ordered some crabs from Hokkaido for the do. They are something else! If you ever get the chance grab it. These suckers were the business!! Messy eating but fun by all and a great experience for all the kids running around the place who learned how to extract the fleshy meat and dip in the juicy juices.
