      Aoshima, le coin de paradis

      May 19, 2020 in Japan ⋅ ☁️ 23 °C

      Aujourd'hui, on se rend sur Aoshima (littéralement l'île bleue). À quelques arrêts de train vers le sud, le coin est paradisiaque : palmiers à gogo, plage de sable fin et mer azurée. On a la chance de traverser un jardin botanique et sa serre dédiée aux fruits exotiques. Papayes, fruits du dragon, bananes, ça met l'eau à la bouche... Vous saviez vous comment poussent les ananas ? Parce que nous oui maintenant ! Après cette virée exotique, on se rend sur l'île à proprement parler. Un charmant pont de pierre pour s'y rendre, un Tori rouge pour nous accueillir et nous mener jusqu'à un temple enfoui dans une jungle luxuriante... Le décor est onirique, sublimé par l'absence de touristes.
      On longe la plage où les surfeurs rident les quelques vaguelettes. Petit instant dessin et photo avant de prendre notre pique-nique, face à la mer et au silence. Un régal.

      Vous pouvez trouver la suite de la journée sur le Footprint relatif à Obi, on avait des choses à raconter et des photos à partager donc deux Footprints pour le prix d'un aujourd'hui ;)

      Aoshima Island

      July 23, 2021 in Japan ⋅ 🌧 26 °C

      We started our day going to Heiwadai park. We bought some breakfast and Sophie realized she forgot her phone so she had to go back and also got Joe's phone just in case. Joe and I went ahead to the park to chill for a bit while waiting for Sophie. Once she arrived, we set off and started at the peace monument, it had a very interesting mechanism where if you clapped at a certain spot, it would reverberate. We also went to the Haniwa garden, these hollow ceramic dolls that were believed to house the souls of the dead. We walked around the park's nature trails before taking the bus back to the main station. We tried out some of the food in the convention and took a train to Aoshima.

      An amazing island right next to Miyazaki, reachable by train. We walked around several of the greenhouses and gardens and arrived at the beach. From the beach, we walked across the stone bridge leading to the island. Aoshima's unique landscape baffles scientists to this day as no one knows why the rocks are shaped the way they are. We went to the jungle shrine at the center of the island and circumnavigated the rest until we reached the starting point. From here, I went to go for a swim in the ocean while Joe and Sophie chatted. After a couple of more dips, we went back and had some snacks. We got back to Miyazaki soon after and ate at our usual restaurant again.
