Hokuriku Camping Car Travelog | 北陸キャンピングカー旅 ①

10月に引き続き、11月はキャンピングカーで念願の「北陸方面」を旅してきました。11月は秋晴れで天気が安定するかと期待をしていましたが、、日本海側は天気がとても不安定。旅の初日は素晴らしい天気で快適に東京を出発しました。11月とは思えないくらいのあたたかい日でした。

Sequel to October, our November camping car trip takes us to the Hokuriku region of Japan. Unlike October our travel day welcomes us with fine sunny weather, rather warm for November. We knew that the Hokuriku area, know for  rather unstable weather and as expected our schedule days (November 13th~17th) ahead did not call for great weather.

(The Hokuriku region includes the four prefectures of Ishikawa, Fukui, Niigata and Toyama)

犬猫たちもすっかりキャンピングカーには慣れた様子。あぁ〜これね、という余裕の雰囲気で各自走行中もリラックスしていました。

Our pets…have adapted well to the camping car trip. They know the housing, they seem to know what to expect ahead. Looking very comfortable.

 

 

Our first destination is ‘Historic Villages of Shirakawa-gō‘ , Gifu prefecture (Japan’s UNESCO World Heritage Sites).

新東名を抜けて、、目指す第一目的地は世界遺産に登録された「白川郷」

「合掌造り集落」白川郷。

1600人の人口の集落。人々はちゃんと生活をしている集落、、意外でした。

到着した日はあいにくの雨の日でしたが濡れた白川郷もしっとりとした雰囲気で素敵でした。朝早くから観光バスが続々と到着し、集落はたちまちにして観光客でぞろぞろ、ぞろぞろ、、。あまり人のいない時期と時間帯を狙って歩くのが理想ですね(それは誰もが思っていることだと思いますが、、笑)

 

Located in a very mountainous region, cut off from the rest of the world for a long period of time, these villages with their Gassho-style houses subsisted on the cultivation of mulberry trees and the rearing of silkworms. The large houses with their steeply pitched thatched roofs are the only examples of their kind in Japan.

The day we visited Shirakawa-go was damp. Although the sun is always welcoming, the rain and damp made the scenery more lush and enhanced the beauty of the autumn foliage, well seen during this very season of November 13th – 17th.

Please enjoy the photographs of Shirakawa-go. (all shot with iPhone X)
