Helloooooooo to you all !
First of all sorry that I haven’t been posting anything for a while, been kinda busy with the begin of the new year and a lot of new things has happened in my life that you will find out soon in the posts that I write !
This post is about our trip to North Japan to an area called Aomori and to be more exact to a town called Hirosaki where we spent our new years in my girlfriends parrents house.
We went to Aomori for 26 to 3rd of january. We were thinking first how to go there that would not be too expensive but still would be interesting so we decided to go by buss and come back by shinkansen (bullet train).
We found the right exit fast and we got there a bit early so we were waiting for our buss.
Our buss itself was quite normal except for couple of things like they gave us free pillow and eye thing to sleep with and blankets too but of course the blankets we could not take with us, also the leg space was perfect even for kinda tall gaijin like me !
Our first High way stop was in Kamikawachi (上河内) which is in Tochigi. We went out for a quick smoke and to see what was in that building. I myself love those highway stops since there are always lots of interesting things.
It was suprisingly cold there compared to Tokyo.
Did find something interesting there tho ! Strawberry kitkat!
We had couple of other stops as well in the night but we were sleeping so we didn’t go out to see them.
Next stop we went out was at the early morning at Iwatesan (which has a big mountain called Iwate if I am not mistaken)
Now that we went out we saw something different ! SNOW ! heh it’s interesting to go in that since you leave from Tokyo that had no snow what so ever and then after couple of hours in a buss and everywhere is covered in snow.
Was a nice place to shop, got some little things for myself as well.
And so the Early morning of 27th we arrived to Hirosaki station and my girlfriends father took us to their house to relax for a while before we went out shopping.
first thing I noticed was that there was much more snow then in Finland at winter.
Oh and by the way I saw something that you don’t normally see in Tokyo
But so our trip to Aomori started and the week in northen Japan began.
More soon to come…!
