I spent Golden Week, a series of national holidays in Japan, visiting relatives in China. Much of China is undergoing rapid development and the cities of Huzhou and Hangzhou are no exception. More projects had been completed since my last visit to the area.
The first series of photos are from a historically themed park area in Huzhou.
An actual historical temple, built to house engravings from previous dynasties.
Hangzhou is a large city with many modern high rises.
Hangzhou also has 西湖 or 'West Lake' a popular tourist destination at which a glimpse of what China looked like can be seen.
