Today, I'm in Hamamatsu! This is my last time hanging out with Celes before my ventures to China. For those of you that don't know, I'm going to Beijing for a month to study Go! Anyways, that's soon, not now. For now, I'm in Hamamatsu!
Today, Celes and I went to a place north of Hamamatsu, in another small town. It's called 岩水寺(Gansuiji). That technically means it's a temple, and there certainly was a temple tthere, but after that, there is the prefectural park. It was a really beautiful, serene place. Here are a bunch of pictures from the adventure!
This is the Gansuiji abandoned hotel. Well kinda anyway. The bottom part has partially been turned into a shakuhachi (Japanese flute) work shop/classroom.
Pretty water, doesn't look like water.
Cool caterpillar ness.
Reeeaaally decent picture of ants.
This park had a giant ninja training ground! It was fuun.
fun on ninja training ground!
I wonder if this was a queen ant... It was quite large compared to the ants around.
This totally looks all aminita like to me.
We took a long picnic in this area.
We found a nature building, that was really cool. Various animals inside, and activities about nature. This is Celes playing with a well they had outside.
This turtle posed for us!
A cool salamander thing.
This is the lizard from a few shots up.. called a 'kanahebi'.
A completely wooden go set!
These are the names of some of the mushrooms we found, and below is a display of some.
More mushroom goodness.
Pretty view from a bridge! You can see a liiittle bit of the city off in the background.
This mushroom kinda looks like a flower.
Cicada shell! about an inch and a half large.
Returning to the city, we saw this spider, caught a cool shot.
