Overnight Trip to Gifu and Kanazawa Part 2

Took a while to make this post, but from here let’s continue on shall we?

This is a photo heavy post, so get ready!

For this part of the trip, we were headed to Shirakawa-go Village. It is a world cultural heritage site. The wiki can explain in FAR more detail than I can, so definitely check it out! And possibly listen to this video as a narration of the blog post as well.

The time we visited couldn’t have been more perfect, as the sun slowly set over the horizon, it made for beautiful photos view o the scenery. I could have just stood for hours and taken photos and enjoyed the peace and quiet. But alas, I was on a culture trip, so we had to move along faster than I would have liked. It was just the right temperature here as well. Not to hot, not too cold. Fall in Japan really is one of the best seasons to visit.

The next stop was the Kenrokuen Garden. Which supposedly has perfect balance. I can believe it, as this was another location I would have liked to have spent more time in. It was so beautiful, I couldn’t believe a man made garden such as this exists. I will let the photos do the talking, as well as the video I posted above. I am a little embarrassed to admit it, but I wasn’t really listening to the tour guide at all, because I wanted to take in the park through my own eyes.
