April 10th Despots and Sukiya!

There has been a lot of noise in the news regarding crazy North Korean leader Kim what's his name and all of his threats. Some news outlets  felt today would be a decisive day for a missile launch but today was a quiet day and no missiles were tossed our way. Yay! Japan does have missile interceptors in place etc. and the U.S. is on alert as well so I don't worry about it too much.
                           Hopefully, crazy dude will settle down and behave himself!

Had a nice day, looked at apartments online and made some appointments to see them tomorrow. The one we liked had complicated paperwork so we're looking at some with easier requirements. We have some good possibilities lined up for tomorrow though so hopefully one of them will workout for us.
                       This evening Gary and I went to Fuchu station and ate dinner at Sukiya.

                                                     This is what the inside looks like.

 It's an inexpensive fast food type place with tasty gyudon and donburi as well as Japanese curry dishes. Gyudon is beef and onions cooked with special sauce served on top of a bowl of rice.  Donburi is a Japanese "rice bowl dish" consisting of fish, meat, vegetables or other ingredients simmered together and served over rice. Anyway, I got a nice braised pork belly over rice with a Miso soup on the side.

 Gary got a beef gyudon set meal that looked like this without the egg and he also had a nice piece of fish on the side.
Gary isn't a big fan of Sukiya but it is fast and cheap and filling and for an occasional quick meal it's okay.After that we  ran a few errands at the 100 yen store and then headed back to the house. It's bedtime now! I'll check in tomorrow and let you know how the apartment hunting goes!
 Good Night!
