"Get in the car," he said while handing me one of his old film cameras. 

That pretty much summed up my entire day - I then followed my friend without asking any questions. He took me to a famous temple in Togakushi, surprised me with a Haikyo visit on the way to Niigata (that's his hobby, "abandoned building" hunting) and took me to Tsubame Onsen, near Myoko Kogen, which is a secluded Onsen on top of a mountain. How did he find these spots? Well...

"Sometimes you just need to get lost to find the secret," he added at the end of the day.
