So over the summer I made a visit to the most isolated place I have ever been to in my life.  It was pretty amazing to see how things went on despite the fact that it was miles off the coast of mainland Japan.  It had a bank, a school, a bar, and souvenir shops.  … Continue reading

Within the temple grounds, there is … Continue reading

A Stroll Through Flower Park

The cherry blossoms have now bloomed all over Japan.  People are constantly having 花見 (flower viewing) parties.  During this time, I was invited to go to my home away from home, Hamamatsu (Shizuoka prefecture).  With the help of my girlfriends mother, I was able to experience some of the beauty that fills Japan.  We made … Continue reading

Inuyama Festival 犬山祭

The Inuyama festival took place shortly after the sun went down.  Around 7:00pm the floats began to make their way down the street and dispersed in different directions.  Each float was decorated differently and on the back were characters that labeled each float.  The path of each float was also different because they would each … Continue reading

Inuyama Castle 犬山城
