This is Martin Werner Zander from the Smith’s School of English in Kotoen マーティン・ワーナー・ザンダー スミス英会話 甲東園 ! I am hoping everyone has been enjoying their much-deserved time off during this Obon holiday season.
My wife Yoko and I wanted to go camping in Toyama and Ishikawa, but because of the unpredictable weather caused by Typhoon Halong (TS 1411), we just decided to stay in hotels along the way. We took a drive up the Echizen coast of Fukui and Ishikawa Prefectures and came back down through Toyama and Gifu Prefectures, along Routes 156 and 158. This is a drive that we have taken several times before, including two previous visits to the famous Wajima area in Noto-hanto and enjoy this environmentally clean and culturally rich region very much every time. If you haven’t been, you really must, and allow for lots of time to explore the mountain roads and hidden villages.
Despite the less than ideal weather predictions, we saw more tour buses than ever before. Tourists from China to Europe are flooding the region and we therefore recommend going during a quiet season. Obon and Golden Week should perhaps be avoided if at all possible, but going at any other times will reward you with unrivalled experiences.
