The part of Nagoya that we live in is called Nishi-ku, which is in the north-west corner of Nagoya. We can actually walk to the next town if we go about 1.5-2 kilometers.
I took these pictures last weekend while walking around the area.
Here is our picnic food for our hanami (cherry blossom viewing picnic).
Cherry blossoms (sakura).
The gate to Hoshi Jinja, a shrine right outside Shonai Ryokuchi Park.
An enma plaque. This is a type of prayer placard. You write your wish on the back. I think that this is a “bonding” plaque, which wishes for a good relationship with your significant other.
This is a fountain where you cleanse your hands and mouth.
This is the inside of the shrine at Hoshi Jinja.
The next post will be about this past weekend!
