Golden Week 2022: a retrospective
It was a mixed bag for this year’s Golden Week. The weather was a bit on-off, and an SD card failed, which meant a lot of images were lost from a visit to a beautiful piece of coastline. Still, on balance it was a relaxing few days and a chance to enjoy exploring Japan a little more.
Apparently, this town on the northern coast has one of the 3 great views of Japan. Sadly I decided to take a look on the day of a heavy thunderstorm.
By the afternoon, the rain has passed and we were down on the beach we’d seen from the mountains.
A brief pause on the way home.
This was where my SD card failed. I managed to get a decent photo of Henrietta Hustler on my phone though.
First visit to Osaka in a couple of months went via the Nakanoshima Museum of Art, then stumbled into a festival of roses.
Located on the banks of Japan’s largest lake, the city is famed for its gorgeous castle. Explore a little further and you’ll also find an “old town” with pre-war architecture and a shopping street that appears to be suspended in the 1980s.
