  • I went to northeastern GW3 days. We went by bus in the morning and the snail says, walk in the Park. It was raining but had just stopped. It was a hill of Morioka city.

  • From Morioka station downtown and there on the right. Near from the hotel's River runs through the next, was just out for a walk. Tirelessly towards the castle ruins little followed the uphill slope in once it arrives at the Summit. Views overlooking Morioka staff and other people stay there until I'm not chatter is exactly good for a date with ❗
