Spirited Away in YAMAGATA, Japan

Driving back home, Satoshi made a turn to a deserted magical world.

It was drizzling and it seems like we are the only wandering souls around.

Stumbled upon the oldest pachinko parlor and this 100 year old japanese inn.

We took a peek but we couldn’t get in as it was closed.

Hungry like pigs, we discovered this empty cafe and devoured all the fish and potatoes that we can eat.

The wind with no face whispered that we need to return home before sunset,

lest we forget our names and be trapped in this world.

Now safely home, we watch Spirited Away by Hayao Miyazaki.
