Ever wondered what life in Japan looked like in the past? Well… maybe not so distant past, but in the Showa period (1926 – 1989). To find out, we went to Nihon Showa Mura, a heritage park located in Minokamo, Gifu Prefecture. Naturally we learned a lot about Japan’s modern history but there were some extras. First of all, the weather so simply beautiful. And since the cherry blossoms bloomed a little later this year than usual, we still got to see them in full bloom! Is there anything more beautiful than Japan in Spring?
