Again I was away from LJ for a while..( Hope you all are doing good, being healthy! I was sick a while ago, but now am all fine! It's been cold again (saw some snow already), but like a couple of week ago, it was so warm like 18C. But last weakend got cold again, was in Okayama prefecture on work, where a bit colder than Osaka. Friday night was -2 or so. But didn't see snow. Well, Okayama has some nice places, Korakuen is one of the best gardens in Japan. I visited there in my free time. Also visited Kurashiki, nice historical city. I'm gonna show some photos.
So this is the first photo I took from the window at the hotel.
Some of you may read 桃太郎 (Momotaro) it is a name of hero of japanese folk tale "Momotaro" Okayama is the place of the story.
This is Momotaro. In the tale Momotaro goes to fight demons with a dog, a monkey, and a pheasant, but in this photo two pigeons got on his side!^^
After work. I was working until 11pm, got to the hotel at 12ish, switched to relaxing VS PJ, ate second dinner, and took this photo. Messy))
My hands somehow look like oldies' here. BTW I got all beauty products I ordered, I will write about it sometime.
This is the garden "Korakuen" very huge, chinese style with pond.
And so many different kinds of flowers and trees, but I went there in the wrong season, most trees were naked, and no flowers except Tsubaki.
So I didn't take photos of flowers, but this. Something...
On Sunday I went to Kurashiki. Damn naked trees, but beautiful, yea?
I found swans in the river :)
Another view of Kurashiki. Love it.
In Kurashiki there is a building called Ivy Square, which has some museums and stuff inside. This is inside Ivy Square.
Museums of music boxes. You can also listen. They are all different kinds of music boxes!
On the way back I found this)) Tabako - Tobacco, I guess ;)
I took this photo a while ago with a donut from Krispy Kreme. But this one was not as good as others.
Heart shaped for Valentine's day.
