We saw amazing all blue world under the sea

We challenged diving to the blue cave!
We have no license so participated a experience corse with instructor.

There are so blue blue scenery and a lot of fishes swimming.
It’s not kind of transparent sea, It’s completely solid blue view so I felt a little bit scary.
But it’s OK, reliable instructor was with me.

We really enjoyed this adventure and this experience absolutely would be difficult to forget.

Umegae-mochi is very popular sweets of Dazaifu

It’s the most famous tourist spot in Fukuoka I think is “Dazaifu shrine”.
Of course people visit for sightseeing or praying their hope especially success of an entrance exam.

But anyway,I would like to tell you about “Umegae mochi”, the famous and popular local sweets, you should have to eat it!

It’s a kind of rice cake, baked crunchy outside and sweet bean paste inside.

You can get one that is freshly baked there.

You can see this beautiful sunset in the summer

Here is Itoshima, it is an area of the westernmost of Fukuoka prefecture.
I have to say it is just a countryside place but since few years ago Itoshima became a very popular place for young people.

Because it has a lot of nice nature, forest, beautiful coast and beaches.
And one of those photogenic place is this place, Futamigaura.

Japanese mysterious “Trii” that is called a border between people and god is placed this coast and a little bit far from it in the sea there are two big rocks chained by god’s rope.

You’ll find a beautiful view anytime, season by season.
But you can see a more beautiful scenery in the sunset time of the summer!

photogenic!
