Fremont has some really good antique/vintage stores. I got that red Samsonite bag at the same place that had the giant shoe chair Nozomi is sitting on in the second picture. We also: shared a cupcake at Flying Apron Bakery, visited the troll, and ate American style sushi at Blue C – she liked the California rolls best.
She was floored by the sushi rolls and especially the names they had – “Why are they all named after places?” You’d be pretty hard-pressed to find the likes of a “Philly Roll” in Japan. I never saw any rolls other than kappa-maki (cucumber roll) and tekka-maki (tuna roll).
