Fixing our battery and discovering Shirakawa-go,
A UNESCO preserved village
Dealing with the battery
As we explained in the article about Kanazawa (COMING SOON), our battery suddenly stopped working when we wanted to project on the castle.
After a long debate, we decided to wait and deal with it in the next city we were going to visit. And the next one is Shirakawa-go. We got a bit scared when we arrived, because the town si really really small, and we were not sure to find someone to fix it properly. Happily, when it comes to think about it, in every villages there are some garages.
So... meet our heroes!
From the reaction of the mechanician who fixed our battery... We sucked hard with it. Like really hard. The fuel and the oil were mixing and the whole thing was leaking... Which triggered the motor security and locked everything.
In Kanazawa, we tried to fixed it by ourselves: we opened it, cleaned it a bit, tried to find the issue, but we couldn't do anything. We realized that outside of the computers, we were lacking a lot of knowledge, and the mecanic is really another world for us.
From this time, we took extra care of it. We were double checking how were packing it in the big suitcase we have: is it well handled? Is it looking at the good direction/side?
Thanks to this, we didn't had any more issues until the end of the roadtrip.
Finding the place to project on
Ok, now that everything is in order, we need to agree on a place to project.
After a bit of scouting, we ended up selecting an isolated but big house. It's gonna be perfect for multiple reasons, again:
- People who live nearby should not hear us.
- The house is unoccupied.
- The house is the style of shirakawa-go; awesome! Plus, we have multiple interesting angles.
- There is rice fields all around, which we love because we find the whole scene inspiring.
That's all for the description of Shirakawa-go.
