Fantastic spectacle of kawachi wisteria garden

Purple world

The next to cherry blossom, coming season of Wisteria.
In Fukuoka there are some wisteria seeing spots but I think the most must-see scenery is “Kawachi wisteria Garden”!

Their wisteria tunnel is really beautiful.

It’s the same to cherry blossom, their terms of peak are not so much long, from middle of April to early May.

This flower peak is just on the golden week: Japanese long term vacation,so many people comes here and being crowded.

Even though like that situation you would find a worth to see once in your life!

If you are going there you have to buy an advance ticket at the convenience store, seven eleven or family mart.

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!

We went to Takachiho gorge and did boating

We went Takachiho gorge in Miyazaki prefecture.
This is really nice spot to feel great nature.
There are lot of tourists everyday, walking around trails, visiting some mysterious shrines, getting on boat and explore gorge.

If you are not good at rowing a boat, you might be inhaled to waterfall and getting wet.Yes it is like me.

I recommend you to get a rain coat!

safe drive!!

In Yanagawa, we did river punting

Yanagawa is a little bit far from a central city of Fukuoka, but it’s a very popular tourists spot.
There are traditional japanese atmosphere and townscape.
You can walk around and shopping some souvenirs, find a comfortable cafe and have a cup of coffee, and a thing must-to-do is a punting tour.

Tourists get on a boat and go river punting.
This tiny boat is going on along a moat and you would have a nice time to see the peaceful Japanese-like scenery.

It is also interesting the traditional costume that boatman wares, if you want to feel more Japanesm, you can rent a beautiful Japanese kimono or yukata.

Let’s try it!
