Kagawa: Senmaida in Shōdoshima

It was the second time for the parents of my chéri to visit Japan.They only visited the big cities last time, so we planned a road trip to show them the different side of Japan.We used a ferry and a rental car to travel in Shikoku region. Shōdoshima was the first place we visited in Shikoku.All the people we met there were very friendly and gentle.One guy picked us up because he thought we were poor foreign tourists lost in the middle of nowhere.There were also some old men who gave us souvenirs after having a chat. Ripe persimmons.Aromatic fragment olives.We could have fun just walking around in Shōdoshima. October…

Shizuoka: Early Summer in Hamamatsu

Hamamatsu is a city in Shizuoka prefecture, located 1.5 hours away from Tokyo by bullet train.I visited there to see my friend and his girlfriend.We met in London, but it was our first time to see all together because we were busy with work and study while living in London. On that day we did some activities at Hamamatsu Castle Park such as cycling and playing frisbee.The best part of this trip for me was at Lake Hamanako.The bright red sunset of the early summer was very beautiful.And the Unagi-don was very delicious. Who I want to see even for a short time.Who wants to see me even for a…

Fukuoka: Brother & Chéri

Sakura blossom is one thing you cannot miss when you visit Japan in spring.We went on a trip from Fukuoka to Kyoto with my chéri’s brother to appreciate the spring beauty.It was still chilly but we could see a flurry of sakura in the wind at Ōhori Park. My chéri’s brother loves Japanese animation films, so he was thrilled to come visit Japan for the first time.It was also exciting for him to see my chéri in person after one year and half. Chéri’s brother: “Nē, otōto. Genki desu-ka? (Hey younger brother, how are you?)”Chéri: “Genki desu-yo. (I’m good.)” How adorable to see them speaking each other in Japanese! March…

Kyoto: Fushimi Thousand Torii

Fushimi Inari Shrine is friendly called as “O-inari-san” in Kansai region.It is one of my favourite in Kyoto, so I have been there so many times.I took my chéri to the shrine when he came to Kansai region for the first time, and we hiked all the way up to the top Ichi-no-mine. On that day, it was showery.Although, the vermillion colored torii gates looked more mysterious in the vibrant dark green moss. And it was also the day for Inari Festival.There were many men in happi coats who carry Mikoshi, a portable shrine.I felt the tradition and the history of shrine from the back of those men. “Wasshoi! Wasshoi!”…

Hokkaido: Shakotan & Chéri

Spring comes to Hokkaido very late.We finally had a nice and warm day in the end of April, so we decided to go on a driving date.We rent a car at Toyota Rent a Car and went to Shakotan where is located approximately the 1.5 – 3 hours west from Sapporo. The cape had very strong wind, more than we expected.I felt it as strong as it might push me from the cliff to the bottom.Although, it was nice to see the blue sea and the mountain covered with snow on top at the cape. On the way back to the parking lot, we took a walking promenade with full…
