Trip in Japan Day 7 – Break Day, Rail Museum, Nagoya Shopping

Today was a break day for us. Originally I never planned any rest days but my friend didn't want to travel to places every single day in case it was too much of a tow so, we did our separate things today.

Monster Hunter 5th Anniversary CG Artworks Book

Now this is the format Makoto Shinkai's "Sora no Kioku" artbook should be in but I guess he had no say in its layout.

The Japanese have to make a card game out of almost everything don't they?
