We took a 25 mins train to Furukawa for a relaxing tour of the town. It got several landmarks featured in the recent released anime, Kimi no Na wa.

Our first task was to sample sake from the Watanabe Shuzoten sake brewery. The 蔵元の隠し酒 was very good.

We then visited the Enkouji temple.

And the iconic Setogawa canal, which will be filled with carps come mid April.

We rested at the refurbished Ichinomachi cafe and the cheese souffle is marvelous.

Qiqi then showed off the Honkoji temple stamp, newly added to mum’s collection.

And a playground near the Honkouji temple, to her own swing collection.
