This is from a visit to Dejima, the Dutch settlement and trading outpost in Nagasaki. It is now being reconstructed to accurately represent the time when Dejima was one of the few places in Japan that were open to the world. Here, it was pointed out to me by a high school girl that I am, in fact, tall. I would give so much to live in a place like this.
People’s opinions may differ, but to me, the cherry blossoms at Hirano Shrine are just the best. That garden takes you of this world.
