We decided to rest closer to domicile today as well as cheque out, what nosotros call, the “obstacle course of written report park”, as well as also a shrine that nosotros had passed a few times. The shrine as well as tori gates are the virtually beautiful, vibrant red. I actually bask the utilization of ruby inward Asian architecture!
We initially idea that the pagoda was all at that topographic point was to encounter at this shrine, but nosotros were pleasantly surprised to honour as well as hence much to a greater extent than exploring could hold upward done! There was a long staircase with a dragon running along the top.
There were lots of unlike statues to await at.
Also, beautiful buildings. I am non certain the utilization for all of these.
The kids never go past times upward a photograph op!
This surface area had hundreds of niggling idols(?) with gifts as well as flowers pose with them.
The intricate woodwork of the buildings cannot hold upward fully captured past times a camera!
This was a staircase leading to the cemetery.
Another sentiment of the pagoda.
This is the really large tori gate at the entrance.
Our adjacent halt was the obstruction course of written report park. Nihon has the virtually amazing parks! They are innovative as well as unique. Why create nosotros endeavour to roll every tike inward a protective security bubble inward the US? (Probably because nosotros convey instruct a civilisation of petty lawsuits….but that is about other story!) This common was as well as hence fun, at that topographic point were at to the lowest degree twenty unlike obstacles to instruct through, earlier the end. Here are the kids balancing on the see-saws.
There were swinging logs to cross.
Influenza A virus subtype H5N1 moving log staircase.
And a zippo line, simply to scream a few. I didn’t instruct pics of everything, the kids were moving equally good quickly!
The obstruction course of written report culminates at a giant (and really fast) slide. This was a huge favorite! I can’t fifty-fifty count how many times the kids climbed these steep stairs.
We volition hold upward back!
On the means dorsum to the machine nosotros passed a grouping of Japanese schoolhouse students. They e’er instruct really excited seeing the American kids as well as moving ridge as well as country “hall-o” (hello). The Japanese kids giggle as well as instruct really happy when our kids answer back. I kept hearing i tike country “see-ya” over as well as over again. Funny!
