It seems like weekends are going to be our times to explore and have fun, and it's going to be even more fun when we get a car. We were walking around aimlessly Friday night looking for something to do and exploring base a bit. We ended up at the enlisted club and saw a show of Polynesian dancers. Ian went to the bar and got me "something with rum and pineapple", it ended up being half alcohol. It was a one drink kind of night. I had no idea those girls could shake it like that. And the guys were really awesomely muscled and tattooed. There was even a fire dance by this huge Samoan guy. We have a hard time staying up past 8 now that we get up every morning at 4, so we ended up going home after that.
Today we went to a Kabuki show in another town about two hours away. Don't ask me where I have absolutely no idea. The theaters name is the Kurakan Theater. It is the oldest Kabuki theater still standing in Japan. This year is it's 101st birthday and all the wood on the inside is original. It was originally built to entertain miners in the area. They mine gold, silver, and bronze. After WWII, television became more popular so less people wanted to watch theater. A lot of theaters were torn down but the people of this town took over the Kurakan in order to save it. They hold a show there twice a day, everyday of the week.
