Exhibition of Shinkai Makoto

Hello Everyone! What did you do on your weekend?

I had a meaningful event on Saturday because I went to exhibition of Shinkai Makoto, director of the movie [your name]!. It is held in Takashimaya from 2/16 ~ 3/3. Here is information!

I have plan next week, so last Saturday was the last chance to visit there.

In front of the Exhibition

Definitely I love [your name] the most, but besides it there were other works of Shinkai Makoto. From his first work, I could watch the whole process of his movie developing gradually.

Sadly, taking picture inside was prohibited so I didn’t take any pictures. There were a lot of scenario and continuity(conti) of his works; ほしのこえ, 雲のむこう、約束の場所, 秒速5センチメートル, 星を追う子ども, 言の葉の庭 and 君の名は.

I was attracted to 言の葉の庭 in the exhibition. I didn’t know this movie until I visit here, so I thought it was really lucky to go to the exhibition! I watched it before I go to sleep that night.

I really like the afterglow of appreciation! The background was especially beautiful 🙂

Village of 君の名は, Hida Furukawa

Hello~ みんな お久しぶりです。
I wasn’t in Grit! from last Tuesday to Friday, so some of you might wonder where I am.

One of my best friends in Korea came to Nagoya and we decided to travel Takayama together. I lost money, and gain weight. But I would definitely say, it was worth it.

My friend was coming to Nagoya on Monday night, so I went Nagoya station after the work in Grit!. And it was on Tuesday that we start journey to Takayama.

Schedule!

Can you guess a first thing we did in Takayama?

It was best sushi I have ever had!

飛騨牛sushi melted in my mouth and it made me happy immediately. We promised to eat 飛騨牛sushi again later, and we actually ate again ^^

Both of us are huge fan of “君の名は” and it made us to go to Hida Furukawa, the background of the movie.

When we arrived at Hida Furukawa, 飛騨牛cow welcomed us at the station!

In lunch time we headed to a restaurant where also showed up in the movie.

We ate 五平餅 like them
we also ordered Ramen.
Notes that a lot of visitors wrote.
I left the note on the guest book!

Next destination was Sakura物産館 , where you can experience thread craft like Mitsuha did in the movie. I didn’t make it but I bought red bracelet as souvenir in the shop. It was so expensive…

Can you see the thread hanging on the wood?
My friend asked whether it is real くちかみざけ,
and it was not..

Walking along the street, we found the railway in the movie.

It looks a little bit different because of the snow but still, it is quite similar.

And the last destination was 氣多若宮神社.

Can you see the similarity?

There were no people in the shrine. It was very quiet and peaceful. Just walking along the street was a great pleasure to me.

As a huge fan of 君の名は, visiting Hida Furukawa was very meaningful and it reminded me of beautiful scene in the movie again.

I hope I can go to other background of 君の名は someday. Maybe Lake Suwa? 🙂
