I can’t believe I’m heading home!
This last week was very relaxing, though I did go to Nagoya Castle and Meijimura with the class. I was really impressed by Nagoya Castle, it was so interesting to see a newly built castle with fresh wood and newly painted screens. Meijimura was also beautiful. It was interesting to be able to interact with an architectural museum. Usually, everything is roped off.
I revisited Sakae, Oasis 21, and Osu. I think Osu was my favorite part of the city. I loved seeing all the shops and strange animals and energy on the streets.
I also went to a few more old fashioned cafes, which remain some of my favorite places to eat. Who knew toast could be so good?
I’ve done a lot of reflecting on the trip and am so happy to have seen everything I did. From the quiet industrial streets of Nagoya to the mountains, everything has been incredible! I was going to list my favorite parts, but I’ve really enjoyed all of it. I can’t wait to come back to Japan and explore even more.
For now, though, I’m excited to get some really good vegetarian food.
Thank you all so much for everything! Hope the rest of your summers are amazing!
