A Late Summer Walk Through a Japanese Garden and a Japanese Dinosaur..

Enjoyed a long weekend and went away despite an oncoming typhoon. Actually we ended being lucky weather-wise and had a great trip. First, I was 'like' a big-eyed, little boy at the Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum. It was beyond my expectations and I would have loved more time there. I was mad about dinosaurs when I was a kid and somehow that interest evolved into birds...

The second place we visited was Kanazawa, which has many tourist destinations but we mainly spent most of the morning at the famous Kenrokuen Garden. Below are some snaps from both destinations. (Highly recommended to any one visiting Japan)
