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!)

Another shot from my hotel room.

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

…but eventually it cleared out.

  1. Beautiful photos. Here in Hawai’i was have a “sister” relationship with Japan and a great portion of our population is Japanese. Consequently, in Hilo (where I lived until my recent move to Maui) we have a lovely Japanese garden/park, a beautiful tea house, and wonderful Japanese people. Some day I, too, would like to travel there.
