On the first day of my trip to Hokuriku Region, I visited Kenrokuen Garden in Kanazawa City.
I was expecting to see beautiful trees with famous snow protection in a snow covered garden, but unfortunately it was a fine day and there was no snow to be seen in Kanazawa. Nature is whimsical! I left the snowy view for another time and decided to enjoy the lit-up garden instead. Kotoji Lantern and Karasaki Pine, the two major attractions of the garden, were reflected on the surface of Kasumigaike Pond, and as a night fell the magnificent symmetrical beauty was mirrored by the water.

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
