It’s still weekday, I’m just laying in my bed writing while listening to some old songs playing in the background. Prepared my hijab and shirt for work tomorrow. Had sambal sotong with brown rice for dinner p/s: only having brown rice because I ran out of white rice. As an Asian, I have to eat rice, be it white or brown. It’s a need.
It was a raining earlier today and I realized I missed the rain. It has been quite a while since it last rained and it wasn’t as cold as yesterday. Just love the sound, the cozy feeling on a rainy autumn day
As Autumn season has arrived and the leaves are slowly (or rapidly at some places) turning yellow, people usually go out to enjoy the scenery and they call it 紅葉 (koyo) which means autumn/maple leaves. In 2017 I was fortunate to enjoy outdoor BBQ with my frieends in Okutama.
So last Saturday I had a last minute plan and joined my friends to this place, Gujo Hachiman in Gifu Prefecture. The place is 1.5hour drive from my place, I’ve never heard of this place before but this is the description from this website,
Visit Gujo Hachiman and you can expect to be immersed in an authentic small town Japanese experience unique to an “off the beaten path” town. Here the traditional way of living is on a very human scale. People passing each other in the street still greet each other with a small bow, and exchange a passing greeting.
…which is true!
It’s a small town with traditional small wooden buildings along the road with a river flowing around it. We arrived quite late so we went to the castle up on the hill and then took a stroll in the street. And thankfully we found an Indian Halal restaurant so we had our dinner there. Each of us were shivering because it was so cold it felt like winter! I didn’t take many photos there. Probably because I used my phone to take some videos for my Youtube channel but we all know how lazy and unmotivated I am during weekdays..Well, lesson learnt here!
Thank you for reading 🙂
