Maternity hospital stay Japan – Day two brought more delicious food and even more amazing presents. It was also the day I got a professional massage in my room.
Breakfast everyday is buffet style. They have a great selection of Western and Japanese breakfast foods. The breads are particularly delicious and varied. The breakfast I chose on day two;
I mentioned yesterday that meals are served in the Fuji View restaurant. It is so named, because on a clear day you can see Mt Fuji, which is about 160kms away from the hospital! The photo above shows you where in the window to look for Mt Fuji. I couldn’t see it in the afternoon on day one, but I sat with it in view on day 2, photo below.
After breakfast I got to choose a present from a selection displayed on the 4th floor. I chose the Summer Soft Bath Chair and a “baby’s 1st year” album.
Lunch on day 2 was sushi.
After lunch we had a meeting about getting discharged on day 4.
We received a light snack during the meeting.
We were presented with a bag of goodies.
The contents of the bag of goodies!
The very delicious dinner on day 2 was Contemporary French cuisine served with cranberry juice. This was my personal favourite out of all the meals, not least because the dessert was an explosion of sweet delights. I didn’t get a photo of the 3rd course “Parfumee au Herbes avec Coquille Saint-Jacques Deux Sauce avec Petits Légume!
In 2018 I had the great pleasure of once again enjoying the French Cuisine of Keiai while visiting my friend after she gave birth:

After dinner, having thoroughly enjoyed my massage in my room in the morning, I decided to leave LO#4 in the baby room to try out the electric massage chairs. These are housed in the “Refresh Salon” on the 3rd floor where you have your shower. They have had this facility since I had my first child 5 years ago, but I never made use of it until this stay.
After “refreshing” I picked baby up from the baby room and we went back to our room for the night. A nurse pops in every night at 9pm to see if you are alright. I must have drifted off after feeding little one as when I woke next it was close to midnight! The end of a very enjoyable day. 🙂
