Hello, Chisa here! How’s everyone’s week so far? (I noticed we never ask these ‘bloggish’ things so I thought I would give it a try).
I have so many photos from Japan but I think I’ll stop after this post (although I can easily make 2 more posts) since I’m starting to feel sad that it’s so cold and dark here, and all my photos from Japan are so sunny and bright. Leaves were changing colours slower than usual so a lot of the trees were still very green.
I bought my camera while my sister and I were waiting for a bus to get to our grandma’s place. I told my grandma and aunt that I want to take lots of pretty photos! And they took us to Oumi Hachiman (
Okay, that was a long intro, now let’s move onto the photos! (And yes, that cat never faced the camera.)
In Japan, you’ll notice a lot of offerings being placed in front of these Ojizousan (googled: “Ojizosan is a stone Buddha statue in the shape of a child”). And I mean A LOT!
Such a beautiful view from the wooden bridge, I can imagine drunken samurais strolling down these streets in a movie. If you look closely, you can see a little boat rowing towards me!
I thought this sign was so cute; it says, “Don’t feed the cat.” Well, I won’t be able to if the cat isn’t even looking at me.
This man was so cute! He sells popped rice snacks, he came out and told me that a famous drama was shot here (he’s holding a photo he shot with an actor as proof). He even posed for me haha, so nice of him.
Another cute shot! Three men lined up on the side of the river, sketching up some masterpiece!
We ended up riding the gondola and went up the mountain. It was a bit cloudy so we couldn’t see much, but this little family shot made up for everything. They took us a group shot, and I took one for them as well (not this shot, but actually from the front).
I could tell my grandma was getting tired (actually I was pretty tired too) so we decided to get going. That’s when I found this temple (?) on our way to the parking lot. I snapped few shots really quickly and I’m surprised how nice they turned out!
And that’s it! I might do another post in the near future if I really start to miss my trip but this is it for now. It’s funny how different Gelati and my photos are. Europe is soooo cool!
