Trip to Tohoku

My husband, who is an architect, is currently working in Miyagi Prefecture.  On a winter day, I went all the way to Miyagi to visit him and his associates. I was delighted to meet them after such a long journey and to find that he was working with such nice people.

I flew to Sendai Airport, and then took the Shinkansen train to go further northward. It was winter, so I enjoyed the beautiful snow scenery to my heart’s content.

I departed from Kobe Airport. As the airplane went northward, the mountains got snowier and snowier.

Here are some views from the Shinkansen. The rice fields were completely covered with snow.

After the happy time with those nice people, my husband and I had to leave for home for winter holidays.

Back at home, we enjoyed the local specialties they gave us. They included a delicacy of Tohoku, which is literally “a Jewelry Box of the Sea,” and fluffy sponge cakes called “Hagi no Tsuki.”

Every time I pass by Miyagi by Shinkansen, the beautiful landscape from the window always reminds me of the wonderful people there. I will always remember their kind and warm hospitality.
