Helloooo!!! This is an overdue post of Missbunny's photos from her travels back in June. Blame it on me. I was swamped with mundane things like the flu, overseas visitors, and spring-cleaning boxes of my collections (and realizing that my house can't possibly store any more things without looking like those featured in Hoarders).
So without further ado, below are some photos of Missbunny and her friend in Kanazawa's Kenrokuen Garden. If you have not been to Kenrokuen, it is a private garden with beautiful landscapes and is considered as one of the Three Great Gardens of Japan:
From Kanazawa, we visited the beautifully preserved old town of Takayama where Missbunny walked the streets lined with heritage houses, shops and sake breweries dating from the Edo Period. She posed in front of a scarlet bridge and the Hida Folk Village, a traditional village house that is commonly seen around Takayama during the Edo Period.
After Kanazawa, Missbunny made the journey to Tateyama, to see the Japan Alps. Specifically, we took the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route, a picturesque route through the Northern Japan Alps which is travelled by various means of transportation including bus, cable cars, and a ropeway. The main attraction of the Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route is the wonderful scenery of the Tateyama Mountain Range, where visitors can experience unique views during different seasons of the year. In spring, accumulated snow from the winter form a snow corridor whose snow walls can reach up to 20 meters high. We went in early summer, so the snow corridor only reached up to 15 meters high.
After all that snow and white landscapes, Missbunny headed to the rural towns of Furano and Biei where she experienced the early Hokkaido summer season. Furano and Biei are famous for the many flower farms found around the towns.
While we were in Hokkaido, it's not just all about flowers. We saw a lot of greenery too.
Missbunny rested a couple of days in Hokkaido's resort town of Lake Toya before heading to Tokyo, our last stop.
It was an enjoyable and memorable trip for Missbunny (and her kitty cat friend). That's all for now and I hope I can report soon with another of Missbunny's travel adventure.
I like to experiment with photography and dabble in crafty things. I started collecting Sylvanian Families in 2009 and hope that someday my little daughter will enjoy playing and collecting Sylvanian Families as much as I do.
