Oh yes, and since school started, I haven't had time to edit the photos. So you'll have to make do with the photos as I took them from my camera.
The trip was a short, one night trip. Which is why I was very annoyed and frustrated to arrive at Kanazawa five hours later than I originally planned, and ended up missing the entire first day.
Why? Oh, that's because there was a fire in Tokyo. Which stopped all trains for two-and-a-half hours and messed up the train schedule for the whole day. While I did get some money back, I also had to wait for an interminable amount of time to get it. If you have me on Google Plus, you would have heard my complaining and seen the pictures.
|In hindsight, I should've bought something.|
But who knew about the train stopping?
After a quick dip in the hotel ofuro, there was dinner!
I ate till I couldn't eat anymore.
So now that I was satiated and happy, we decided to add one item to our itinerary and see Oyama temple at night. Since we turned out to be a small group of nine (for which I'm grateful, since I don't like crowds - more on that later), deciding to add stuff was a very quick decision.
|Just before we entered.|
|It's also brightly lit.|
And mikan (mandarin oranges)
|The mikan are the small things on the top left side.|
I actually had a nice chat with the ladies running the stall, and learnt things like "the red is from the strawberry flavouring that you put in kakikoori". And my sweet tooth demanded I buy something, so I got the mikan and strawberry.
When everyone was done, we headed back to the hotel. There was a drinking session going on, but after last year's, I stayed away and just went to sleep early. I never knew sitting in a train for so long was so tiring.
To be continued.
