Touring Iida

Our wonderful tour guide even gave us directions on how to use a Japanese washer and dryer.  

Iida is known for their many varieties of apples.  

Cool playground at a public park.

This poor guy has no idea what is going on.  He has a clicker in his hand to count the number of people that walk by this area.  He instantly began clicking away.  Our group stopped right in front of him to learn about the area.  I am sure he was wondering what in the world all these Americans were doing!  This is a quiet little city.  I don't think it is normal to see a group like us wandering the streets.
Another cat in the window.... but I guess little Becca Lee doesn't look at my website anyway!  Maybe I won't take anymore cat pictures, since she is too BUSY!

Apple tree......Kevin, is this a good picture?  I think I did a good job.

Safety First!  The electrical and phone lines are cover with yellow insulated covers to protect the workers.  

Old storefront

This is the manhole cover in the street.  Iida is known for their apple orchards. 
The manhole covers are beautiful!

Gate to a place where there was a castle.  This gate is opened once a year, on the first day of school.  There is a school directly across the street from the gate.

Junior High Students picking apples.  This street is lined with apple tree planted and maintained by Junior High students.  No one is allowed to pick the apples, except the children.
