When in Tokyo…
Exercise is good for you – all ages!
My aunt is 90, and my mum is 78. On Tuesday they both walked 9km. Yes folks you read that right… 9km. The key to achieving this is taking things at a slower pace.
We’ve taken the stairs slowly (where electronic options are not available – temples), and the wheelchair routes have proved to be very helpful.
We’ve even managed to get them walking around without their shoes – when absolutely required.
All food is good
So many snacks to be had while walking in Kyoto.
Or when travelling on train, and it’s bought at the train stations.
Although worrying about what the food is like going to be like, takes longer than actually eating and for the smile to appear. We proven they can eat beef cooked medium!
Sweets are great in Japan – especially when purchased by the guides feeling slightly guilty about all those stairs!
Red bean cakes at morning tea are lovely.
Green tea ice cream was also enjoyed.
Vending machine selections prove to be good.
Okonomeiyaki proved to be a winner!
The guides have learned not to worry and get them trying all variety of food – so far.
