Home safe from the #silktour! Working on an epic blog post (and maybe some video?) but in the meantime I’m wiped, so please enjoy this mango vanilla swirl ice cream from the Konnyaku Theme Park. Fun fact: when the attendant saw me taking this pic he offered to make me a prettier one! Isn’t that sweet? #gunma #japan #lifeinjapan #icecream  (at こんにゃく博物館)

Day 2 of #silktour, first stop: Arafune Cold Storage. Air moves through the rocks, bringing the temperature down from 17*C to 3*C today. Silk worm eggs were stored here year round, allowing the extension of the production cycle for the first time. At its peak, Arafune did business with 40 prefectures and Korea.
