Since I'm just so enthusiastic about blogging, I thought I'd post again. :) Certainly is easier to make shorter posts; I think making drawn-out, long posts is what killed my enthusiasm for blogging before. Wish I had blogged more while I was actually in Japan (I was there for a month in the summer), but it is nice to look back on all I did while I was there.
I lived in a city close to Nagoya, the capital of Aichi Prefecture and the third largest city in Japan. I only went to Nagoya to explore around once, but it was a lot of fun! I didn't even get to Sakae, though, I'll have to make sure to go there next time I'm there.
I waited for my friend at the train station (which is the largest in Japan, if I remember correctly...and it was indeed huge!), but since I got there early, I did some sight-seeing from the window of the 21st floor.
In the center? Nagoya Castle. Right in the middle of the city, pretty much. Even though I never did get a chance to go there, I just think it's really interesting that there's such a clash between the bustling city and the old castle.
