Today, we ate delicious vegetarian food and saw beautiful sakura (seems to be a theme this week).
First, we started our day by dining at Jinenan, a lovely restaurant in Irinaka.
Next, we went to Inuyama, a cute town north of Nagoya.
Inuyama Castle is one of the few remaining original castles in Japan.

I took this shot from inside the castle.
I was trying to get myself some sakura ice cream, but they were sold out. The other flavors were fabulously translated…
Instead of ice cream, we got cake sets. Teddy got a chocolate tart and coffee.
I got New York cheesecake and tea.
These beautiful blossoms were down by the Kiso River.

This Naito Pabu made us smile.

An awesome dragon at – are you ready for this name? – Daihonzannaritasannagoyabetsuin Daishoji. Really, that is the name of this temple.

After Inuyama, we went back to Kamiotai, got off, bought some snacks at the conbini, and went to Nagoya Castle.

After Nagoya Castle, we went to Sakae for a little while.
That’s all for today!
