    Oshino Hakkai: The matchmaker

    September 17, 2016 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    We continued our journey and stopped at a place called Oshino Hakkai. It a place consists of 8 natural ponds and each pond has a special power. We went to the first pond where it is said, if you dip your hands in the water for 30 seconds, all your sins will be erased. I put my hands for 1 minute, since i had alot of sins. We then went to (maybe) the most famous pond, a matchmaker's pond. It is said that you will find your true love of you stay at the pond. That must be a lie, since i didnt see any japanese girl running towards me. Maybe it only works if you are japanese? There was a stall nearby selling grapes. We wanted to buy some till we saw the tag price. It costs 20€ per 500 g !! We could not believe our eyes and decided to continue with the journey.Read more
