After visiting the wonderful Yumi-ike Pond, it’s time to go to the Mount Shirane.
Mostly know for his ski resorts, Hakuba's village is also a very nice place to be in the end of autumn. That's where took place 1998's Winter Olympic Games.
In Nikko, when going beyond Lake Chūzenji and beautiful Ryūzu Waterfall, there is another splendid place to discover : the Senjōgahara Marshland (戦場ヶ原).
From this point, we can choose to visit the Yumiike pond or go up directly to Mount Shirane summit.
Sakurayama is a unique place in Japan : this is a mountain where koyo (autumn’s leaves) and sakura (cherry blossom) gather in an original union.
Sakurayama is a mountain with sakura (cherry blossom) quite peculiar. Those ones bloom during autumn!
The spot is marvellous: the birds, the sound of the water and the squealing mills... and from time to time, a damn mosquito.
I visited the back alleys of Miyajima, I discovered the place where fawns meet together, I took a unique walk in a temple that was even more unique, I ate a lot both grub and junk food.
It's early morning in Okinawa and the sky is already ocean blue. Without any hesitation, we jump right away in the first boat direction the paradise: the Taketomi Island!
After visiting the urban side of Okinawa with Naha and Nago, here we are now in the ferry, on the way to Kerama Islands, more precisely Zamami and Aka Islands.
I bring you in the most popular onsen in the Akita prefecture : the Nyuto onsen. We’ll then go for a nap in the Tsurunoyu ryokan.
Koishikawa Korakuen is a garden of the Edo period and therefore, it is one of Tokyo’s oldest garden.
The biggest azaleas explosion is at Nezu Shrine : there are some 3,000 shrubs of about ten different colours, just that !
In the middle of Gunma Prefecture, there is an infernal train station : this one takes you straight to the center of the earth! Almost.
Do you like, sweet waterfalls and breathtaking landscapes? Then Nikkō is not only the perfect place but it is also not very far from Tokyo.
In summer, the Izu Peninsula is ideal to spend a refreshing week-end. Located a hundred kilometers away from Tokyo, I strongly suggest to rent a car to enjoy the fabulous seaside.
An illuminated Fuji-san, followed by 4 big bursts of fireworks on its top: that's the signature of the Edogawa Fireworks.
When we looked up, a miracle revealed itself: billions of stars and the milky way stretched from one side of the sky to another.
This year my wish was to let Kami-sama take me by the hand for nice, random walks through the city and enjoy the hanami in a more spiritual and romantic way.
We're getting at Jigokudani this time to visit the famous monkeys bathing in the onsen...
