Meiji Mura on a perfect day!

kitasato-institute-of-infectious-disease-research.jpgThis past Saturday we went for a drive with a couple of our American ICT friends to the open air museum Meiji Mura. “Meiji Village” is a park with over 60 original buildings from the Meiji era (1868 -1912) transported and restored so that we can get a feel for what it was like during the period when Japan was opening itself to the West. I believe that by train it is about 45 minutes to the station and then there is a bus but parking was plentiful and cheap and as long as you stay off the expressways driving was probably just as cheap – and far more enjoyable too!
The park is in the hills about an hour out of Nagoya and Just being amidst the greenery and smelling air infused with soil and leaves and fragrant wild flowers was magnificent! Of course the DSLR got a good work out. Enjoy!

  3. Nice shots, of the photos I was able to see.
    To be honest, that Flickr flash gallery loads very slowly for me (and I’m on a fiber connection with a 2.4GHz Core 2 Duo machine). And I find it hard to navigate. Maybe it’s just me.

    Thanks for the heads up Jason, if you’re having trouble then my family in Australia won’t be able to load anything! Hmm back to the old metre-long posts link to flickr for the rest I guess. But it looks so purdy and technological!

  5. Just a thought – what was it that was hard to navigate? Did it not change every five seconds automatically?
