And the (main) diary so far

※Category Archives: 2010 deutschland:

And well, I had such a hard schedule. It was kind of the first time in two days that I was able to sleep slowly.

Let’s start the real sightseeing today!

Now, this is the kind of city we’re talking about.


Wartburg Castle, we’ll go there later.

This is actually my first time to come to Thuringia. There are many areas in this region that are associated with Goethe and Bach. And it’s also related to the World Heritage Site, but it’s also a place where the so-called “Reformation” took place, and it’s also an area related to that.

My impression of this quiet German countryside town was that it was more crowded than I expected, though.

Anyway, we aim to the central square. The weather is not so good. Too bad…

The stalls in the square were mainly selling fruits and flowers.

Now, let’s go to Bach’s birthplace, which is about 5 minutes walk from here.

Can we say that this kind of atmosphere is German? This atmosphere reminded me of Strasbourg in France.

By the way, there is a signboard that sometimes becomes a town, and what Japanese notation. Are there many Japanese tourists?

This area is also associated with Luther, the central figure of the Reformation, right? I think he lived here.

And we arrived at Bach’s birthplace. There are so many tourists (foreigners). I’m a little disappointed…

I waited idly until he was gone. They were gone sooner than I expected, though.

Bach. It’s Bach. (TEARS)

So, I went to my birthplace, but it was early in the morning and it wasn’t open yet…. So I didn’t really want to wait, but it was getting a bit of a hassle, and I still had a lot of plans for the rest of the day, so I figured, what the hell (laughs).

But it’s already enough for me to cry just thinking, “This is where that great Bach was born. Thank God for this place!
