During the Spring holiday I had lots of plans for fun stuff to do with the girls.
And we did a lot of that stuff.
But their after-school care centre had a Spring Holiday Festival and they wanted to spend the day at the centre doing that instead of hanging out with me.
Jilted by my kids!
Not to waste a free day my friend S and I decided to head down to Kiso and walk part of the Nakasendo. This is a historic trade route that used to link Tokyo and Kyoto.
There are some really sad stories along the way. 2000 soldiers died in a battle in one valley alone when they were ambushed. In February.
What a horrible, lonely and very cold way to go.
It was a really beautiful walk though and one I want to do again!
