My journey through the world of writing and everything that lies in between…

Travel Back in Time

I was doing a bit of research on the town much of my book takes place in and every time I look for info on it, I’m overcome by the desire to actually travel there.

It’s easy to see why the town of Kakunodate has captured my imagination. I have such a clear picture in my head of what it would have been like for my MC to come there, a small village then, after living in busy Tokyo her entire life. It would have been like stepping back in time, to a place of living history, much like it would be now more than a hundred years after my book is set.

I long to go there and do research and take my own pictures. Alas, traveling to Japan from Ohio is not exactly cheap.

Maybe someday. 🙂 For now, I’ll be content looking at my array of online pictures.

    From your link it looks close to Matsumoto Castle. I visited the castle in July 2007 if you want any extra photos to add to your collection.

    I hope you can make it there some day! What a great motivator that would be.

    It should be less expensive outside the big cities, so you never know. 🙂

  5. I am hoping you can go there.Good luck for the trip and God bless..:)

  6. One day you’ll get paid to go do that kind of research.

  7. I sure hope so!! That would be a dream; I’ve always wanted to be a traveller.
