在日式旅馆(后面会详细介绍)安放好行李之后,我们开始在弘前市小巷散步。

这是一座教堂,虽然弘前市人口不多,有宗教信仰的更是了了,这座教堂却算得上是青森县数一数二的大教堂了。

这两张是散步时的夜景。夜晚笼罩的静谧的小镇,蜿蜒到望不尽尽头的灯灯火火,似乎在邀请你前行,给你娓娓道来这个小镇的故事,小镇的人,小镇的美。

导游rairai是留美归国的本地人,他带着我们尽情穿梭弘前市的大街小巷,给我展示这个迷宫一样的世界。有时候最便捷的路都在被覆盖在重重掩饰之下,也有点像这个城,最美尽在不言中。

然后我们去三家当地富有特色的居酒屋家品尝弘前市的传统美食。

第一家店的店主非常有心,他会记住每个客人的名字长相然后以可爱的小狗狗的形式画到店门口的小黑板上。他给我们准备的刺身和章鱼炸丸子都新鲜美味,豆苗锅也灰常好吃。

去第二家店时已经六分饱了,但还是抵不住饭后美食的诱惑塞了很多。妈妈桑非常热情的招待我们多吃点多吃点,感觉很温暖。

第三家店是个酒吧,进去实在是塞不下什么东西了就点了白开水,店主还说我是他从业以来第一个向他要白开水的哈哈哈。

旅途的小窝是一个叫“石场旅馆”的日式旅店,我住的是双人间,榻榻米,独立小却精致的浴室和洗手间,阳台上休憩专用的茶室,力道十足的电暖,无一不显出旅店的朴实和舒适。

第二天早餐也是传统日式早餐,丰盛且营养丰富。

After putting our baggage in the hotel, we had an alleyway tour at dusk.

Pic1 is a church we saw on our way. Our guide rairai San told us that although there were not so many people, the church was really huge one in Aomori.

Pic 2 and 3 are the night scene of Hirosaki, it was very nice with the light twisting and turning, showing u the endless beauty of this city.

Rairai San lead us to three streets by using his knowledge of the labyrinth city. Sometimes the closest way was always hiding at some place that was really humble.

After the walk, rairai San took us to 3 special restaurants to have a taste of the hirosaki' traditional dishes.

The first one served us seafood and nabe, that was fresh and delicious. The owner had a good memory and he would paint every customer and their names by the form of lovely dogs on the blackboard at the entrance of the restaurant.

For the second one, the mamasan was really enthusiastic and kept letting us have more food.

For the third one, which was a bar(1st time to go to a bar), as I couldn't have anything, I ordered hot water. And the owner said I was the first customer ordering that during his whole career life lol.

The place we live was an inn named "石場旅館", which was established in 1879 and was popular with international tourists. Whilst it did not have the same comfort as a hotel, the traditional tatami style rooms, the delicious and nutritious Japanese breakfast, the balcony with a tearoom all gave me a taste of "old Japan".
