On our last day we went to eat and shop. We went back to Iyasume for the beef rice bowl. The beef was very tender with just a light sweet sauce and rice perfectly cooked.
For lunch, we wandered over to Chibo Restaurant where we had eaten before on a previous trip. Their specialty is okonomiyaki.
A cold beer on a hot day (my forehead is all shiny from the heat).
Octopus salad, a bit gingery for me
Yakisoba with scallops and steak
The okonomiyaki, very filling and still not quite the same as in Japan
We walked over to the Ala Moana Shopping Center (too far to walk, better to drive or take the Hilo Hattie free trolley) to wander around for a few hours before heading back to our hotel to check-out and head to the airport.
On the way back to the hotel, the sun was setting behind the mountains
Sad to go home but it was a good vacation… we’re flying at 10:45pm and arriving at 6:50am the next morning. It’ll be good to sleep in our own bed and see the kitties.
