Hello! I’m back, at least physically if not-quite mentally. We spent the weekend with friends in Aichi prefecture, and it was fantastic. Here’s a look at our weekend and some of the reasons I love summer in Japan.
We started the weekend with a proper lunch, prepared in Nagoya’s hitsumabushi 櫃まぶし style.
The evening found us in yukata 浴衣 at the Nagoya Castle summer night festival.
Sunday meant a trip to Gifu for a river swim.
Back in Kisogawa, as we waited for the hanabi 花火, the sunset almost outdid the fireworks show.
After some of the best fireworks I`ve seen (according to our friend, the display was 1/6th as big as others), it was off to an onsen. It rained a bit as we sat in an outdoor pool, cooling our faces. That night, curled up on the tatami mat, I never slept so well.
What beautiful pictures. So happy Molly got to visit and it sounds like you guys definitely made the most of the adventure. xo
Those cream puffs are too beautiful to eat!
Oh my.. the scenery is beautiful..and the cream puffs look amazing!!
How incredibly jealous do you want to make me? Castle, fireworks, yummy food, yukata?!! Yooooowwwwch! 😛
