Village of 君の名は, Hida Furukawa

Hello~ みんな お久しぶりです。
I wasn’t in Grit! from last Tuesday to Friday, so some of you might wonder where I am.

One of my best friends in Korea came to Nagoya and we decided to travel Takayama together. I lost money, and gain weight. But I would definitely say, it was worth it.

My friend was coming to Nagoya on Monday night, so I went Nagoya station after the work in Grit!. And it was on Tuesday that we start journey to Takayama.

Schedule!

Can you guess a first thing we did in Takayama?

It was best sushi I have ever had!

飛騨牛sushi melted in my mouth and it made me happy immediately. We promised to eat 飛騨牛sushi again later, and we actually ate again ^^

Both of us are huge fan of “君の名は” and it made us to go to Hida Furukawa, the background of the movie.

When we arrived at Hida Furukawa, 飛騨牛cow welcomed us at the station!

In lunch time we headed to a restaurant where also showed up in the movie.

We ate 五平餅 like them
we also ordered Ramen.
Notes that a lot of visitors wrote.
I left the note on the guest book!

Next destination was Sakura物産館 , where you can experience thread craft like Mitsuha did in the movie. I didn’t make it but I bought red bracelet as souvenir in the shop. It was so expensive…

Can you see the thread hanging on the wood?
My friend asked whether it is real くちかみざけ,
and it was not..

Walking along the street, we found the railway in the movie.

It looks a little bit different because of the snow but still, it is quite similar.

And the last destination was 氣多若宮神社.

Can you see the similarity?

There were no people in the shrine. It was very quiet and peaceful. Just walking along the street was a great pleasure to me.

As a huge fan of 君の名は, visiting Hida Furukawa was very meaningful and it reminded me of beautiful scene in the movie again.

I hope I can go to other background of 君の名は someday. Maybe Lake Suwa? 🙂

I love birds

Hello everyone! How was your weekend?
Do you remember that I have birds in my home?

I LOVE birds because I like watching them flying. I feel they are like mixture of dogs and cats. Some days they come to me “Let’s play!!”, but sometimes they ignore me even if I call them.

Can you see TWO birds? 😀

When I was heard there are Owl Cafe in Japan, I thought “I NEED TO GO THERE!” immediately. There are some parrot cafes in Korea, but not an owl because owls are protected species. If someone make Owl cafe in Korea, it’s illegal so he probably will be arrested by the police.

Anyway, my dream came true faster than I thought. When Yoshida san go to Tokyo for his business, I followed him and luckily get a chance to go to owl cafe!

Soooooo cute!!

It was not just an owl-only cafe, but also a variety of parrots. Am I in heaven..?

There were also cockatoo parrots I love! When I became independent and live by myself, I will definitely live with cockatoo.

They are cockatoo parrots. I love their yellow color.
I am seducing them to come to me.

I tried to hug them but they ran away from me and flew up to the high place. I lured them with the parrot food but sadly they never came to me.

I gave up the cockatoo and hanged out with little parrots. They flew up to my head and were drowsing on my arm.

After I spend time with the parrots I went to another room to watch owl. It was my first time I saw the owl so closely.

They are 仲良し~
Their hair was unexpectedly soft

I could touch the owls but unlike the parrots, the owls were being tied up so they couldn’t move freely. I felt sorry for their feet being tied up. I wanted to bring them to home and I thought about two big dogs in Yoshida san’s house. Can the dogs and birds live together? If not, the birds might be in danger!

I am fascinated to the birds more deeply. If you like birds, Welcome! let’s watch birds together someday!
