The last time I blogged about nanoblocks, I thought my collection would stagnate at seven for a long time. Definitely I was not expecting to find the Historic Villages of Shirakawa-go nanoblock still available in the market, much less off a dusty shelf of a bookshop in Gangnam, Seoul! After all, this was the second nanoblock to be released of the whole series and the series now stands at over a hundred.
Suffice it to conclude that I was ecstatic when I spotted it! Part of the reason of my being so happy is that H and I just visited Shirakawa-go earlier this year. And I loved the trip very much. The nanoblock replica of a Gassho hut we stayed in is just the very souvenir I need to remind me of the fond memories.
