Inuyama castle

On 5th of January, I had a special journey with Shiho san. It was an unexpected travel to me because I just thought about eating lunch together(I am very simple person), but Shiho san wanted to show me various place in Japan. She suggested me to go to Inuyama castle together! It was very 感動.

On the way going to the Inuyama castle, I asked “Does Inuyama castle mean Dog-mountain castle?” and she said it is right. Why the name is Dog-mountain castle? I am curious.

Anyway, we arrived at Inuyama station! I worried about the weather because it rained a little in the morning. Luckily the weather cleared up.

Lively street going to the castle.
There were also a lot of shops drawing my attention.

There is a common saying, “A loaf of bread is better than the song of many birds”. Yes! It means 花より団子. Therefore, Shiho san and I decided to eat before going to the castle.

In front of the castle, we found おみくじ. We drew the first おみくじ in 2019!

どきどき … What’s in it?
大吉~ I was very lucky!
I also get 縁 結び おみくじ

Finally we headed to the Inuyama castle. The castle was made of wood, and it made me calm and peaceful.

After going up the steep stairs, I could see the wonderful views in a high place.

Beautiful!

Watching the beautiful scenery on the Inuyama castle, I imagined how will it be beautiful in the Spring 🙂 It puts on airs of elegance and I really liked it.

Spending time in Inuyama castle, we became hungry again. Going back to the station, we tried other foods we didn’t eat yet.
