(referring to my previous post)

there’s a small quiet village between the mountains and Japan sea.

Both Kobe and Tokyo are facing the Pacific ocean, so naturally, and at least for me, it’s quite rare to visit the Japan Sea side of the country:)

I visited Amarube iron bridge for sightseeing.

The old red iron bridge is not used anymore but it’s preserved as it is for sightseeing:) You can go up and enjoy the beautiful landscape from there.

I visited the other side of Hyogo Prefecture yesterday, and found some interesting designed manhole covers there.

At a glance, you will see the area is located by the sea.

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.

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.
