For dinner, my side of the family met up with Joyce, Melody, and myself at Kamakura Japanese Restaurant in Alameda.  I yelped the restaurant before in search of another Japanese restaurant to frequent.  We ordered a bunch of rolls, my usual Amaebi, and Edamame/Inari for Melody.  The food was pretty good and the service (I think) is better than Sushi House due to the place being smaller.  I was surprised when they turned out the lights and the staff and owner sang Happy Birthday to me.  They gave me a card and a birthday platter decorated with a golden tree, paper crane, cup of Green Tea Ice Cream, an orange cut-up in an orange bowl, and a Fuji apple sliced in the shape of a bird.  I was truly surprised.  At the end of every meal, guests get plum wine apertif (a really sweet dessert wine with hardly any alcohol) and kids 10 and under get Botan Rice Candy.

All in all, this was a pretty good Japanese restaurant.  The only thing you have to worry about is the bathrooms.  Kamakura’s bathrooms are shared with the chiropractic offices next door.  There are two keys before you head back to the shared hallway: one for men and one for women.
