When I opened it, there were many colorful Rakugan inside.

These Rakugan were in different shapes such as autumn leaves, plum blossom and other traditional Japanese plants.
They were so beautiful that I almost could not eat them.

The Oozasa Bokujou seems to be a good place to get in touch with nature.
There are some kinds of facilities such as camping and a BBQ.
Everybody is able to have fun there.

My friend and I rent a car to drive to Nikko in Tochigi pref. in order to be relax and have a good time.

We drove to the ceder-lined highway in Nikko, Tochigi pref. where was a very famous tree-lined street.
There were a lot of big ceder trees lined the street that made us a peaceful time.

A friend of mine who visited Nagasaki gave me some sweets from a shop called petit a petit.

This shop is run by a single young woman, and all of the sweets are very carefully made, with a delicate, homemade flavor.

The shortbread sprinkled with locally-produced salt from Nagasaki was particularly delicious.
The seasonal tarts are also excellent!
