Last time on my school blog post, I began to discuss my love for Japanese cuisine and how my cooking skills are beginning to improve. It just takes time! And lots of trial and error, right? Well, I thought I would take a break this week from discussing food (although it is always on my mind!) because I have a wonderful picture I would like to share with you all!
During Golden Week, although there was the constant risk of COVID-19 lurking around the corner, I decided its better to get outside rather than sit inside all day. My apartment is clean and tidy but sometimes you need some fresh air in your lungs!
I decided to make a trip to the Sendai Castle Ruins in the western part of Sendai City. I had seen the picture of Date Masamune on the internet countless times before I departed from the UK, it being an integral part of the area's identity. It was sad to learn of the destruction of the area during the Second World War, as so much heritage around the world had been lost in that destructive period. Nonetheless, you can't destroy the breathtaking view at the top of the hill!
In my photo, you can see the famous statue of Date Masamune. I couldn't believe my luck when I came to admire the statue and saw the sun perched in the sky and positioned just beneath the horse! Alongside his famous and unmistakable crescent-moon helmet feature, I thought that the marriage of sun and moon in this picture with the powerful Date Masamune still ruling his domain was something I had to share with everyone!
Also, if you can see, the sun's glare through the lens created a green reflection and it is situated near his eyes. It is as though his spirit is still alive!
Next time, I will maybe discuss more Japanese cuisine but if I have any more pictures that I feel impelled to share, then it may have to wait!
Thank you for joining me here today! Hopefully I will see you again soon (*^^)v
