Tegarayama Botanical Garden

Day 9 in Himeji: Woke up around 10, had breakfast, went to 588 to return a key I forgot to put back the day before and to get clean bed covers.

12:15, time for another day of exploration! Mission: find Tegarayama. But first: look for lunch around the station. I went into a so-called French bakery and decided to give it a try. Bread in Japan is very very different from what we’re used to, so giving a bakery a try is a big thing. 😉 They had real (!) pain-au-chocolat and sesame bread with Camembert (delicious)! Across from the bakery was a supermarket, where I continued my quest to find Belgian chocolate that is not Godiva. Since arriving in Japan, I hadn’t found any Belgian chocolate in the supermarket, but October 6 was my lucky day! (Yes, I’m that much behind with writing my blog…) Cote d’Or, yummy! They also sold Lotus and Jules De Strooper biscuits.

Around 2, I found Tegarayama. Mission accomplished! I crossed the street via a pedestrian bridge, because I saw signs at the other side of the road, then realized there were signs on the other side as well. But since I already walked to far I was too lazy to cross the bridge again, so I decided to check out this side anyway. It turned out there was only a botanical garden on this side of the street, but since I was there I already, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to take a look. There were beautiful flowers and plants, nothing special but I did really enjoy my visit.
