    'Gorge'ous walk

    October 17, 2019 in Japan ⋅ ☁️ 20 °C

    Started the day with a hearty breakfast from the owner of the B and B in Takachiho.
    The local guide leaflet said there was a 5-6 hour walking loop which would take in all the local sites. We needed to finish fairly quickly as our latest checkin time for our accommodation on the coast was 5pm. We went to the to tourist office to get a map of the route and set off. They have made walking trails super easy to follow by attaching blue and pink ribbons to trees every 50m or so.
    This took us past a shrine, along the Takachiho gorge and up into the hills past a tea plantation. Stunning views all around. Started to rain in the last 200m of the 8mile loop and got into the car as it started to properly rain. Good timing! Finished in under 4 hours so plenty of time to get to checkin.
    Drove for about 1.5 hours down to the east coast, across loads of bridges and through tunnels with steep sided valleys everywhere. You can see why the Geography books say 66% is mountainous forest.
    Arrived at the coast with some pumping surf. Posters everywhere saying it is the world series competition at the local beach this week, so guess that makes that our plan for tomorrow.

    Onsen in the morning

    October 16, 2019 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    An Onsen is a Japanese hot bath. Due to the volcanic earth, there are thousands of hot springs all over the country. When I went for a shower this morning I discovered our guest house had one 😁.
    Had a chill in the hot water to start the day. The owner gave us some suggestions of what to do for the day including visiting a local spring and an underground river with lights. We went to both.
    The spring you can drink directly from, so I went back to the car to collect the water bottles and filled up. Highlight for me was at the underground tunnel, where some cool strobe tech made the water look like it was flowing back into the tap.
    Found a forest shrine about 10 mins away so walked to the top of the hill. There was a huge window in the rock which you could walk through and see the views beyond.
    Drove away from Mount Aso area down hill in search of blueberry icecream and fresh bread, again both recommended by the owner. Not easy to find from his hand drawn map, but after asking a few locals for directions we found them both. This holiday seems to be about continual food grazing so far.
    Checked into our new accommodation for the evening which has epic views over a deep gorge and out onto hills in the distance.
    Finished the evening off at 8pm with a traditional Japanese dance show.

    Zu Gast in Miyazaki

    May 2, 2018 in Japan ⋅ 🌫 17 °C

    Zu später Stunde kamen wir am Bahnhof in Miyazaki an, wo uns Yukiko bereits mit einem herzlichen ‚Willkommen in Miyazaki‘- Schild erwartete. Miyazaki ist ganz im Süden Japans und ca. 7 Zugstunden von Kyoto entfernt. Wir drei hatten das Glück und durften 2 Nächte in ihrem Zuhause unterkommen und dabei die ganze Familie kennenlernen. Vater Yoshi und die Söhne Koutarou (4 Jahre) und Hinata (6 Monate) sind extra wach geblieben, um uns zu empfangen - so härzig☺️

    Am Sonntag machten wir alle gemeinsam einen Ausflug nach Obi, wir brauchten 2 Autos, da wir total 7 Personen waren - big family😍☺️ In Obi besuchten wir nach dem Bogenschiessen die Altstadt und machten eine Art Foodwalk. Gegen eine kleine Gebühr konnte man Coupons kaufen, welche man in den veschiedenen kleinen Läden gegen Essen oder Souvenirs eintauschen konnte. Eine super Idee für uns Touristen, so konnten wir von allem ein wenig kosten😋 Nach dem Foodwalk ging es, mit einem Zwischenstopp beim Fussbad, zurück nach Hause. Das gemeinsame Barbeque, bei welchem unter Anderem eine Mango für CHF 18.- serviert wurde und extra eine Freundin kam um ein spezielles Fried Chicken zu kochen, war ein gelungener Abschluss eines wunderbaren Sonntags.
    Den Montag verbrachten wir mit Velofahren und ‚das Leben geniessen’ am Strand. Eigentlich wollten wir surfen (Yoshi und Yukiko sind beides passionierte Surfer), aber es war uns dann doch zu kalt. Unsere Surfpremiere lässt also weiter auf sich warten...

    Am Montagabend reisten wir drei dann weiter Richtung Fukuoka-Hakata. Hier mussten wir uns wieder von Manuela verabschieden, sie nimmt hier die Fähre nach Südkorea und fliegt in ein paar Tagen wieder in die Schweiz.🛫🇨🇭

    Takachiho Gorge and Shrine

    October 17, 2017 in Japan ⋅ ☀️ 18 °C

    We left the ship at about 9am for our tour to Takachiho Gorge and Shrine. It was another dull overcast day with a little drizzle. Sarah and Ann joined us again which was great. It was about an hours drive to reach the gorge. Our guide Norry was excellent. He is a TV presenter and commentator as well and gave us lots history and other general information about the area. We stopped for a short break on the way and we bought a Japanese sweet that a lady was cooking. It was about the diameter of a piklet and as thick as two with sweet white bean paste inside. I would describe it as interesting. Next was Takachiho Gorge. We walked down some steep steps into the gorge. Even though the weather wasn't kind it was still spectacular. We walked (slowly)through the gorge for around an hour and then a small shuttle bus took us back to the carpark. It was about a 10 minute drive to the shrine, our next stop. Although small it is very old and surrounded by cedar trees. One tree has two trunks and it is said that if you walk around it three times holding your partners hand you will have a successful relationship. Yes, we gave it a go! On the way back to the ship we stopped again at a small shop. On Norry's recommendation we bought a small bottle of Sake which we managed to sneak back on board. We also bought one of the largest apples I have ever seen for 200 yen. When we arrived back at the ship I purchased some grilled chicken which I took to the Lido for lunch. This was accompanied by the apple (very sweet). After our late lunch we went to the lower promenade to watch the sail away. There were some drummers performing on the pier. I headed back off the ship for some photos. Whilst there I was approached by a school boy to fill out a survey as part of his English studies. Not long after that two school girls approached me to do the same survey. I asked if I could photograph them and you can see the result. I also got a good shot of Sarah, Ann and Cathryn watching from the lower promenade. We were waved off by quite a few people which was great. We are sailing through a two metre swell at the moment and the ship is moving around quite a bitRead more

    Takachiho

    July 26, 2018 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 28 °C

    Paddelspass

    Mit dem Bus sind wir heute morgen 1.5 Stunden dem Gokase River entlang gefahren. Mal wieder eine Fahrt irgendwo ins Nirgendwo :-) Unser Ziel waren die Manai Falls - eine Schlucht mit schönen Wasserfällen in Takachiho. Dort konnten wir ein Boot mieten und im Fluss herumpaddeln.
    Zum Abendessen wagten wir uns in ein Restaurant in der Nähe vom Hotel - es ist wirklich ein Wagnis, wenn man beim Eingang nichts lesen und kaum hineinsehen kann! Zu unserem Glück war es jedoch sehr gut und so viel, dass wir danach fast platzten :-)Read more
