    Lots of festivals in summer! Can’t wait to see the fireworks display in Gifu tomorrow! And going to the beach on Sunday. A lot of plans after the tough semester…

    It seems you are missing the Shiragawago that is one of Japanese World Heritage. I have never been there too, but it views superbly in photos. I have only seen the model house that I posted in my previous post, Japanese Farm House. Your are right there are lots festivities in summer, firework in particular.
