Our sixed day (april 5), no nawa-news just a quick update on playing silly gaijin in Nagoya. Today Kureha-san took us to visit Nagoya-jo. A beautiful castle that was build by Tokugawa Ieyasu for his ninth son. Much of the castle was destroyed during WWII and replaced in 1959.


There is a teahouse on the castle ground that is really nice to see during the sakura season. Which is now 🙂 Our trip to Japan was purposly planned during this period to be able to watch the sakura.


Our dinner was fully arranged in a wonderful traditional Japanese restaurant called “shimonoishiki”, selected by our honorable host. Eating in Japan is highly social event and the dish is presented as a work of art. Taking pictures of the food is a very common activity in Japan. Here is a shot of one of our dishes.
