This is a blog post to show that i know how to post a blog post
Last week I was able to attend a youth camp at a deserted island. I was the only not Japanese person at there. Here is some pictures from the camp.
On our way to the campsite we walked past this beautiful yellow tree.
Here is an overview of the main camp area.
Here it is from a different angle.
A picture of the peaceful beach.
The first night we went nighttime hiking. This is a picture of some of the campers waiting for the rest to get ready.
For lunch the second day we had Japanese style BBQ. It was basically just grilling a bunch of normal and weird stuff. Here they prepare the grill.
This guy was recently a exchange student in New Zealand. That meant he knew english and could be my translator when needed.
Grilling some normal stuff.
And some not so normal stuff. This is ika. A form of squid they use in all kinds of food.
Japanese people love it.
This fish is called Shishamo. They eat the whole fish, eyes, bones, everything. I tried one. It was actually not too bad.
They told me: “This is oishi (delicious)”
Seafood yakisoba. One of my favourites!
We got pretty nice weather our last day.

I am sorry for not having posted anything in a while. But here are some pictures from the last months, showing how the win winter in Japan might look like.
A small video I made here in Kobe
In this post there will be many different pictures from different places and events. The first pictures will be from when i am going to Rokko Island. This is a artificial island just outside of Kobe. On this island there is a Church where I work every other Wednesday and Friday. I also attend it three Sundays a Month.
Nada train station which is the closest train station to where I live
Inside the train station where I “beep” my card
One of the trains I have to take to get there
The next train is The Rokko Liner which is without any driver as you can see.
Right outside there is this concert building looking like a giant UFO
On my way home I bought this drink just because of the name
A picture on my way home from Nada Station
These next pictures is from when I attended a birthday party for Hannah Emilie which is the daughter of some of the missionaries here. All the other Norwegian missionaries where invited too.
A overview of some of the park we went to.
These two one year olds are the two kids i´m baby sitting a couple of times a week
Another overview of the park. This place was a paradise for kids!
This slide actually went fast
I also wanted to post this video that I just edited. It is not from Japan. I filmed it right before I left.
The last two weeks there have been a family called Grøtteland on vacation here. Their parents used to work for a norwegian school here in Kobe 15 years ago. On of the guys in the family called Ole Rassmus and his girlfreind Solbjørg used to go to the same high school as me a couple of years ago. Since I new some of them I decided to join them on two trips. The first one was to Osaka where we went to one of the biggest aquariums in the world and what used to be the biggest Ferris Wheel in the world. The other trip went to Hiroshima. Since everyone have heard of this town I felt like I had to go.

On our way to the aquarium which is the red and blue building.
A scary looking octopus
Their two whale sharks!
Some creapy looking giant crabs

Osaka at night
Some of the memorial park with the museum in the background
Here you can see three of the most important monuments in one picture
One of the most impacting things in Hiroshima was to se the before and after model of the city. Unfortunately I forgot to take a picture of it. Instead I got a before and after picture of the food we ate that can be an alternative example.
I have done allot of different things lately. Therefor I also have allot to blog about. I will post some of it today and the rest will be posted later this week.
When I am not working I like to spend my time wandering around in Kobe. Here are some pictures.
There are allot of bikes here in Japan
One of the many shopping streets. This one is a small one.
Here is the famous Kobe tower
