倉敷 Kurashiki Canal

Kurashiki, Western Honshu, Japan

 

Doesn't look very Japanese I know! Kurashiki is Christchurch's sister city because of the canals here. The evening light with these ancient willow trees made for a slightly eerie atmosphere. The buildings are kura - japanese store houses, now converted into shops. They are distinctively white with black trimmings.

 

We are currently in Hiroshima and heading out to the island of Miyajima today. Tomorrow we head south to Kyushu.
