28th of October 2014
Japanese Alps

We left the hotel Tagoto at 7 o’clock in the morning. Our next destination was the Shirakawa village, at the area of Fukushima. We passed through the Japanese Alps in a journey where the tunnels were giving their places to motorways, into breathtaking surroundings painted with all the beautiful colors of the autumn!





After Shirakawa and following the instructions of the gps, we drove at the Tohoku expressway towards Nagoya.
We covered 550 km, payed 13.000 yen to tolls and after a few more wrong instructions from the gps (for a change!) eventually we reached our destination. After a quick stop at the Hotel Mystays Nagoya-Sakae we went for a walk in the city. We visited the impressive mall of Nagoya and had something to eat. «At last», I thought, «our first encounter with the Japanese Cuisine». We were fed up of eating biscuits and junk food.



What really impressed us a lot, during our small promenade in the roads of Nagoya was the “NO SMOKING” sign at some spot on the pavement.





It was the first time we were seeing that the smoking was not allowed at one of the city’s pavements! Remarkable is also the freedom as far as clothes and dressing style. A very obvious example of this kind of freedom was the man who was walking next to us _most of the time, during our promenade_ wearing pumps with high heels!!!
