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.

The biggest fish in the world

We were in Churaumi marine museum.
They have a huge aquarium and a few Whale sharks in it, that is the biggest specie of fish in the world.

No teeth!!
[voice icon=”http://yocoso.jp/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/ファイル-2018-02-19-17-29-51.png” type=”l defo”]Whale shark is so big but I heard that they never attack and eat people.
They eat planktons. I wonder why they become such a big size by eating plankton.[/voice] [voice icon=”http://yocoso.jp/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/ファイル-2018-02-19-17-35-44.png” type=”r defo”]In other else, there are a lot of migratory fishes like manta or sardine!

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!
