I often go to Nagoya station, and always impressed by the beautiful illumanations.
On last Sunday, my best friend came from Korea then we went to more special place to see illumination, Nabananosato. We went to Nabananosato soon after having lunch, and waited until it becomes dark in Onsen.
Five different types of Onsen made us happy!! We seriously doesn’t want to go outside the Onsen, so we almost miss the Illumination.
When we went outside, beautiful illumination spread beyond my eyes.
And this was the highlight of the illumination! The motive of the illumination was mountain Fuji.
Even the illumination was beautiful, my body was getting frozen. I am used to the weather of Nagoya so it was extremely cold! But my friend said Nagoya is very warm…^^. I really missed the Onsen.
Snows always makes me excited. It fresh up my mind and makes me feel innocent 🙂
Even though Korea is very cold, I can not see much snow in Seoul. So when I got to Shirakawago I was touched by the breathtaking view of the mountain covered with snow. It was the first time I saw the snow that much!
There were a lot of cute wooden houses and it was like a scene in a fairy tale. The whole village was amazingly cute!
Me and my friend were so excited and we took pictures everywhere.
But the thing is, it was freezingly cold as much as it is beautiful. Our hands and feet were frozen…. We decided to go to a warm restaurant in order to continue our lives.
The food was not enough, so we also went to a cafe.
After having a coffee in the cafe, we headed to observatory where we can watch the whole town on the high place. The walking street to observatory was closed in winter because of the huge amount of snow. We took the bus.
And scenery on the observatory! The houses looked like miniature.
Even though it is super cold, Shirakawago in winter was very attractive. I would never forget the massive snows and beautiful view! And thanks to my friend who took nice pictures for me!
On 5th of January, I had a special journey with Shiho san. It was an unexpected travel to me because I just thought about eating lunch together(I am very simple person), but Shiho san wanted to show me various place in Japan. She suggested me to go to Inuyama castle together! It was very 感動.
On the way going to the Inuyama castle, I asked “Does Inuyama castle mean Dog-mountain castle?” and she said it is right. Why the name is Dog-mountain castle? I am curious.
Anyway, we arrived at Inuyama station! I worried about the weather because it rained a little in the morning. Luckily the weather cleared up.
There is a common saying, “A loaf of bread is better than the song of many birds”. Yes! It means 花より団子. Therefore, Shiho san and I decided to eat before going to the castle.
In front of the castle, we found おみくじ. We drew the first おみくじ in 2019!
Finally we headed to the Inuyama castle. The castle was made of wood, and it made me calm and peaceful.
After going up the steep stairs, I could see the wonderful views in a high place.
Watching the beautiful scenery on the Inuyama castle, I imagined how will it be beautiful in the Spring 🙂 It puts on airs of elegance and I really liked it.
Spending time in Inuyama castle, we became hungry again. Going back to the station, we tried other foods we didn’t eat yet.
Inuyama castle was very special place. It was really nice to be able to go there. Thanks to Shiho san helped me going the castle! I really enjoyed a lot ^^
It was a pleasant day for the both eyes and mouth.
Hello everyone! How was your weekend? Do you remember that I have birds in my home?
I LOVE birds because I like watching them flying. I feel they are like mixture of dogs and cats. Some days they come to me “Let’s play!!”, but sometimes they ignore me even if I call them.
When I was heard there are Owl Cafe in Japan, I thought “I NEED TO GO THERE!” immediately. There are some parrot cafes in Korea, but not an owl because owls are protected species. If someone make Owl cafe in Korea, it’s illegal so he probably will be arrested by the police.
Anyway, my dream came true faster than I thought. When Yoshida san go to Tokyo for his business, I followed him and luckily get a chance to go to owl cafe!
It was not just an owl-only cafe, but also a variety of parrots. Am I in heaven..?
There were also cockatoo parrots I love! When I became independent and live by myself, I will definitely live with cockatoo.
I tried to hug them but they ran away from me and flew up to the high place. I lured them with the parrot food but sadly they never came to me.
I gave up the cockatoo and hanged out with little parrots. They flew up to my head and were drowsing on my arm.
After I spend time with the parrots I went to another room to watch owl. It was my first time I saw the owl so closely.
I could touch the owls but unlike the parrots, the owls were being tied up so they couldn’t move freely. I felt sorry for their feet being tied up. I wanted to bring them to home and I thought about two big dogs in Yoshida san’s house. Can the dogs and birds live together? If not, the birds might be in danger!
I am fascinated to the birds more deeply. If you like birds, Welcome! let’s watch birds together someday!
