It’s been a long trip for us. From Yokohama to Ishikawa it took us 9hrs long drive. Plus 1hr. for stops. We leave Yokohama around 9:30pm (Evening) less traffic let say. As a
companion to the driver which is my husband, he might get sleepy when he sees me sleeping. I better to do something so, I bring along the iPad to watch Marvel Marathon that’s 14 movies on the row. Good Idea, but he needs to take a nap or break in a service area.
Even though is tiring drive, but when you see the place it was breathtaking. The Sea and Greenery mountain, full of trees. I’m a nature lover this kind of place will rarely be seen in the city.
