    Nagano to Kanazawa

    September 4, 2017 in Japan ⋅

    It's a long drive to Kanazawa today. Firstly the route takes me west to Hakuba, which is a popular ski resort, although quiet at this time of year. The first photo is of an Open Garden area there.
    The route then takes me north through Otari to Itoigawa on the Toyama Bay coast. Quite spectacular views of both mountains and coastline. I have video only of this.
    From here it's west past Toyoma to Kanazawa. Lots of traffic, some congestion and not much scenery. I take a photo of a Honda S660 roadster (for you Joe) which looks pretty cool.
    I reach Kanazawa and pass my hotel on the left. I strain my eyes looking for hotel parking but there are workmen outside the hotel so I park in a street lot. Around $7AUD for the day, which is much better than hotel rates. I move my car to the hotel tower park the next day. Basically my car goes into a lift which goes up and dispatches my car somewhere on a higher floor. Problematic if you want to grab anything out of the car later! When you ask for your car, the process is reversed and the car rotates on a carousel in the lift. So you can drive it out directly without reversing.
    Anyway I check into my room at Hotel Mystays. It's a double SMOKING room of an impressive size (last 2 photos) but the cigarette smell is overwhelming on first entry. A/C helps but the smell is in the pillowcase and towels. That's the only downside as the hotel has a small gym and a free laundry. I use both of course.
    It also offers room service so I order a grilled pork on rice and lettuce meal for around 8AUD. Very filling! This hotel is better at catering to international tourists than the others I've stayed at. Highly recommended as long as you book a non-smoking room!

    October 8, 2018 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 23 °C

    Ich melde mich heute aus Kanazawa. Von Tokyo bin ich mit dem Bus hierher gefahren. Hauptgrund war der Garten Kenroku-en der uuuuuuu schön ist. Hier haben sie extra Gärtner die das Gras zwischen dem Moos ausreissen, damit der Moosteppich sich ausbreiten kann. Das Posingfoto hat ein Japaner von mir gemacht. Hat mich extra gefragt ob er mit seiner Kamera ein Foto von mir machen darf. Und nur hinstehen reichte dann nicht, ich musste eine Pose machen. Das wollte ich dann natürlich auch mit meiner Kamera festgehalten haben. Ausserdem war ich noch im Kunstmuseum, wo das lustige Poolföteli entstanden ist. Morgen nehme ich den Zug nach Kyoto.Read more

    Happy Birthday Sam!

    October 25, 2018 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C

    Happy birthday to the cutest, sweetest and most delightful little boy! Sam set the pace for the day today and it was full of sweet treats! Starting with breakfast at the hotel, we had a nice slow morning, with Sam indulging in croissants and the local buns with crusty tops called "melon-pans" (he had the choc chip variety!)

    A play at the local playground followed, where we saw lots of local preschoolers. Sam wasn't very keen to join in on their play, even though a couple of kids tried to play with him.

    Cupcakes were our next stop, which served as his birthday cake for today. Given Japan's fondness of all things Halloween there were some very cool decorated cakes and unusual flavours, but as always he chose vanilla!

    Knowing that he would be celebrating a birthday while we were in Japan, his only request was to ride on a Shinkansen. We made that happen by heading back into Tokyo for the last week of our trip. Shinkansen shoes and a Shinkansen backpack made for great pressies, but all he was really wanting was an ice-cream at the end of the day.

    Happy birthday sweet Sam, we hope you had a great day. Love you xxx

    October 24, 2018 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 20 °C

    Hello Kanazawa! Today was spent visiting Kenroku-en Garden and some of the other tourist destinations of Kanazawa. The city area of Kanazawa is easy to get around and despite only having one full day here we managed to see quite a lot in the short time we're here.

    The kids (and Mik and I!) didn't really want another full day of walking for hours so it suited us really well!

    Kanazawa has been a delight- the famed autumn colours of Japan are starting to show here and I was so glad to finally see the magnificent reds I have been so eagerly waiting for.

    August 7, 2015 in Japan ⋅

    מקדש הנינג'ה מיוריוג'י - מקדש מגניב להחריד מלא במלכודות ומקומות מסתור.

    מבחוץ נראה שיש למבנה 2 קומות, בפועל יש 4 קומות עם 7 שכבות של מבנה פנימי.

    האמת שהמקום לא קשור לנינג'ות, הוא נקרא ככה רק בגלל כל הטריקים המגניבים שיש במבנה.

    מקום תפילה שהוא בעצם בור, מדרגות נסתרות, ארונות כפולים ומנהרה בתוך באר הם רק חלק מהארכיטקטורה המסובכת של המבנה.

    יש להם אפילו חדר חרקירי! יש בו בדיוק 4 מזרני טאטאמי כי ביפנית 4 ו"מוות" נשמעים אותו דבר. זה נחמד שכל דבר אצלם סמלי.

    (היה אסור לצלם, התמונה לא משם. להמחשה בלבד:)

    מה שלמדתי כאן זה שהמסעדות הטעימות ביותר הן הפיציות, אלה שיש בהן אולי 12 מקומות וזהו.
    טעם מקומי אותנטי ומושלם!
