Sunday- Panorama Park.
About 15 minutes walk from my apartment is Panorama Park. A cable car that goes up to the top of a mountain. from there, you can see the Izu coast and Mt Fuji on a clear day. Here are the pics. I still can’t believe how amazing my local area is!
The last entry of ‘photos from Japan-2010’ is here. Our last stop was a ‘Ryokan’ in Wajima. A Ryokan is a traditional Japanese hotel. The old couple who ran the place were really sweet, and the location was amazing. One thing I haven’t done is taken many photos of food here. well, I don’t plan…

Kanazawa Temple pics.
I can not for the life of me remember what this place was called, but it was epic, beautiful and really really crowded! I will ask my tour guide.
