I went to Sapporo Snow festival for the first time in a long time.
I arrived in Sapporo two days before the festival starts, so I was able to see the ice/snow statues were being made.
the best season in Kyoto
I went up to the top floor observatory of the Kobe Port Tower last week.
It was such a splendid view:D
In fact, my personal goal to visit Kagawa was to eat this. I have seen this soft serve somewhere on Flickr, and since then, I have long wanted to eat one myself.
The toppings is called OIRI, and parents in this district traditionally celebrate their daughters’ marriage with this special sweets.
The texture of oiri is quite light and it vanishes as soon as it landed on your tongue. It seems it’s very very thinly baked rice-powder-something.
I’m very, very, VERY, satisfied:)
There’s this famous shrine called Kompira-san in Takamatsu, Kagawa.
There’re around 1000 steps to get to the top.
While visiting Kagawa, my husband and I ate udon one after another….five udon meals a day!
My husband and I visited Kagawa the other day. It’s far from Tokyo, and I have never been there before. I even thought I may not visit Shikoku district forever. (it’s one of the four main islands in Japan)
But now that we live in Kobe, we have some easy options to get there. This time we took ferry. We left by early morning ferry, and came back by night ferry.
Kagawa is pretty famous for its UDON noodles. Somehow their udon is really better than general ones, and they are very, very, very proud of it. There are hundreds of thousands of small udon restaurants wherever you go.
Look at the photos above! Look at that seat design! It is so cute:)
