Happy Belated Thanksgiving!!

    One of the halls at The New Sanno Hotel in Hiroo.  It's mega beautiful and luxiourious-looking inside. I just had to take a picture.

Happy Belated Thanksgiving everyone!

I wanted to post on Thanksgiving Day but I was so lethargic after Thanksgiving dinner.
I had Thanksgiving Dinner with some old and new friends at the military run New Sanno Hotel in Hiroo.
Back at home, I grew up eating Sunday brunch on base...so I knew Thanksgiving dinner here wouldn't disappoint me!
They had everything totally American style!!  Not Japanese-American style but real American style.  Down to the pumpkin pie!! 
Man it was so good!!  They had turkey, ham, roast beef, mash potatoes, gravy, stove top stuffing,  pasta shells filled with cheese,  all kinds of fruits, and oh my gosh the variety of pies, and  flan, cheesecake, and lots more.  It was sooo worth my 3000yen. <--very cheap considering it's Japan and in comparison to the prices regular hotels were offering.
Although, I've had Thanksgiving Dinner here before, whether it be pizza parties, potluck, or at Sizzlers, this was the first real Thanksgiving Dinner with turkey and gravy and all that  I've had in my 4 years here.  So I was really happy!

I hope everyone had just as great of a Turkey Day.  My one regret is that I didn't stuff myself till I was sick.  Cuz, now I keep craving more turkey and mashed potatoes and pumpkin pie.  Ahh, the minuses of not being home for leftovers.

Happy Thanksgiving to you too 8D ♥

I never want to see Turkey again XD I'm sick of it all ready, and I'm probably going to be stuck with it for 2 weeks.

LoL. I bet that's how I'd feel if I was with my family in the States right now. Well, at least you won't have to worry about going hungry. :p

I find it cool that even in Japan where Thanksgiving means nothing, they still have things like dinners for the foreigners. I know this particular one's a military-run place, but still. =.3

Yeah, I guess Americans are lucky in that respect. My Japanese friend who was also at the dinner I went to, was saying that she really hopes Japanese people adopt Thanksgiving like they have Halloween and Christmas.
But I think it's really unlikely, since there isn't really anything commercial about Thanksgiving. Except for the selling of turkey...but I dont think turkeys are as cute as carved pumpkins or jolly St. Nicks to catch on here in Japan.:p Easter has more of a chance with the Easter bunny bringing basket of chocos and toys and all.

Haha yeah...... it's kind of more difficult to chibify a turkey and make it look cute. .^^; And Thanksgiving really is an American holiday since it's got stuff to do with history. But hey, maybe these Thanksgiving dinners will catch on. =.P
