    Had no idea what "feudal" character to find in his heart from that (would be exposing the shame). However, the yamaboko gorgeous and its old springing questions and why this inland region has prospered, the atmosphere was quite flourishing shopping city I wonder, did the background. You could feel the old times just walking along the streets leaves stored in a nice relaxed atmosphere.
