First we woke up on the beautiful view of the rainy lake
We first drove and on our way to Ouchi-juku we stop by Aizuwakamatsu where we could see the amazing 14 th biggest statue on ear of Jibo Dai Kannon she is 57m (187 ft) and absolutely beautiful
Jibo literally means “loving mother” and therefore the Buddhist Goddess of Mercy is depicted with a child in her arms. In Japan, the Kannon’s three female forms are meant to depict child giving, mothering in general and being a loving mother. She is the patron saint of motherhood, easy delivery and child-rearing.
Visitors can go inside the 57 m-tall statue or enjoy the enormous Japanese garden with a 14-m Reclining Buddha.
Well it is foggy but she is really nice
Then we drove for ?uchi-juku
view from the road
?uchi-juku was an important post town whose buildings served as shops, inns and restaurants for travelers it is still very traditional and beautiful
The village view from the top
Me and my future husband ehehe (just kidding)

There is something for you men too she is really pretty miss Fukushima…?
Some decoration at the entrance of the town
After such a nice town we left for the Nikko and Oze National park.
This restaurant does amazing handmade Soba noodles
Here is the statue of the swimming pool with natural hot water from the mountain
woouldn’t you like to swim there ? I know I would eheh
After lunch we wanted to go higher but the road was close due to big snow
a lot of snow
Hotel hiding in snow
My snow man eheh
So we went back down the mountain
and then we went to visit a traditional outdoor theater
a scissor shrine
The toilets are really nice too (outside) after like I say already 2 years ago, I believe that Japanese traditional toilets are worst than the Turkish one eheh
The infamous toilets
The theater is just really fantastic I would love to assist to one play
The actors (not very communicative eheh)
very nice statue
a fountain of natural hot spring (it is really hot)
That was nearly what conclude my trip to Fukushima prefecture just a few more stop for taking pictures than it was time to head to Nagano prefecture.
I want to thanks all the people that make it possible for me, also all the people that welcome me so warmly…
