Japan – The Country side of Yamagata Prefecture (3)

2nd morning in the town of Yamagata. Again, waking up early and quickly taking a walk to other areas of the town which I have not explored. But before that…. this was my breakfast for the day.

The houses here comes in all sorts of types and it really caught my eyes.

Another house with the ‘structure’ protecting their bonsai trees.

Beautiful view of the ending autumn feeling with some golden trees on the side of the road.

Follow me on my last part of posting of Japan where I stopped over in Tokyo for an hour before heading to Narita Airport.

Japan – The Country side of Yamagata Prefecture (2)

In the Yamagata town, I walked around the housing area near the hotel which I was staying. I loved their simple wooden houses; clean and simply looking.

This is the hotel which I was staying. I had only like an hour to walk around and also have my breakfast. I had to quickly stroll around and capture as many shots as I can.

I was curious why they had this kind of ‘structure’ covering their bonsai. It was later only that I understood that this was to protect their bonsai trees from the winter snow. it was new thing to me as in Malaysia we never ever have snow or feel the 4 seasons like in Japan. Malaysia was just hot and wet weather all year round.

A back lane (or was it front lane??) where I passed through.

Another typical Japanese house. Wished I could enter and see how it was inside.

My breakfast for the morning in the hotel cafe. A lovely and healthy breakfast ( and not cheap!)

Looks like it was going to rain with the dark clouds overhead
