  • I visited with a friend in Shanghai. It takes an hour by car from Shanghai. On the day, the weather was chilly because of the rain, so the tourists were sparse. I was able to see it slowly. There are still some of these water villages around Shanghai, but this place is also known for being the setting for MI:3 starring Tom Cruise. When I was walking around Kojinnai, there was a place that became a scene of the movie, and While remembering that it was shot in this place, I enjoyed taking pictures of various places.

  • Suigo Kojin is about an hour and a half drive from Shanghai. It was not a "old old old shrine" that is common in China, but it was interesting because many of them used real old buildings that still exist. There were many attractions such as the stone skin wall which is characterized by the smoke rain corridor along the river and a narrow alley.
