An evening at Kiyosu Castle

Today we explore Kiyosu Castle 清須城 – a place that the ruthless warlord Oda Nobunaga called home. Today the castle sits quietly in the mundane town of Kiyosu, but as once the capital of the powerful Owari province, its influence may have waned, but its importance to history has not.

Aomori Bay

Aomori is mainly known for producing apples, and inevitably, the area offers all kinds of apple-based culinary delights: warm apple juice, apple mousse and apple pies to name just a few. But I love the refurbished port area, which now offers the opportunity for beautiful walks by the water. You’ll feel dwarfed by Aomori Bay Bridge, a cable-stayed bridge overlooking the bay. Visit the Hakkoda Maru, a retired ferry that once traveled between Aomori and Hakodate from 1964 to 1988 and is now a permanently moored floating museum; and admire the unusual pyramid building that houses the Aomori Prefecture Tourist Center, ASPAM. Its platform on the twelfth floor offers a beautiful panoramic view.
