Baby owns Fukushima, meets goat

The family and I are now in Fukushima Prefecture enjoying a little R&R as I have a couple of days off of work. It's been really, really great. Pictures forthcoming. I figured out the key to staying in a nice Japanese style inn (旅館 for those of you taking the Japanese proficiency exam this year). Opt out of the dinner. You pay through the nose and if you're anything like me, there will be lots of expensive raw fish that tastes the same as the inexpensive raw fish. Then you eat dinner out (we at this farm on the top of the world) and then go to the hotel. Two people, one night including private hot-spring bath: only 8000 yen. I know, I can't believe it either.
