What We Did:
On our last day we biked around the city a lot and popped into different businesses, parks, and places that looked interesting to us. Morioka has a river running through the middle with a beautiful and walkway lined with flowers and on a clear day, an amazing view of a snow-capped mountain in the distance. I really loved just biking around and taking in the beautiful city.
Later, we went out into the suburbs to find Don Don Down, a second hand clothing store that we had visited the other time we came, but had since moved locations from the heart of the city. I'm really glad we made the trip, because I found this vintage yellow dress for $5 a jacket and shirt for around $4.
Just outside the train station, there is this big electronic clock in the wall of a tall building that opens up and plays music while robot people dance around. It tells the legend of a demon being sealed in a rock. I missed the clock playing last time, so we hurried up there for the top of the hour to catch it before we had to leave. Then it was time to head back on the bullet train, and with sad hearts we returned our trusty steeds to the bike rental outside the station and boarded. The view out the window was so so pretty- there was bright green, lush vegetation everywhere, countryside, mountains, forests, and rice paddies. The bullet train was going so fast that everything in pictures actually came out bent. s-c-i-e-n-c-e-.
