      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.🛫🇨🇭

      Miyazaki !

      May 18, 2020 in Japan ⋅ 🌧 22 °C

      À défaut de pouvoir visiter le musée du génie de l'animation japonaise (à Tokyo et fermé), nous voilà dans la ville du même nom !
      Muni de notre pass de train, nous sommes arrivés à bord d'un "express" qui longeait les rizières ainsi que la mer sur plus de 150km. Nous débarquons à Miyazaki sous la pluie avec un climat bien tropical et humide.
      L'après-midi devant nous, on part à l'assaut du Miyazaki-jingū, un temple perdu au cœur d'une forêt urbaine. On passe sous des Toris (ces grands "arches" rouges) et on se retrouve devant l'imposant temple, sous une pluie battante. Personne en vue, le cadre est mystique, on se croirait dans le voyage de Chihiro. Cerise sur le gâteau : des étudiantes en habit traditionnel traversent l'allée, protégée de leur parapluie.
      Après cette escapade hors du temps, on retourne tranquillement à l'hôtel en passant par les grandes rues commerçantes de Miyazaki.

      Ça "sert" à rien, c'est le signe de la religion shintoïste ;)

      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 ;)

      Kaeda Valley

      July 24, 2021 in Japan ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

      Going to Kaeda Valley wasn't easy without a car but we still went for it anyway. I was quite intrigued to try this place out as it was known to function as some sort of forest theraphy or forest bathing so to say. Getting to the correct station was the easy part but we had to walk a long way to the valley, as in more than an hour worth. It was a good thing the surroundings were so beautiful with mountains and farmlands all around. The sun was overbearing though, soon there were rivers which signalled we were getting close. We stopped by some benches as we approached the park entrance and made our way in to the valley.

      The atmosphere changed immediately, everything was much more fresh and serene. The river's color was an amazing hue of aqua blue and there were a lot of diverse flora and fauna. Halfway through, we arrived at an empty campsite. I changed my clothes here and went for a dip at the river, almost losing my eye glasses in the process. The river was so cool and refreshing, it pretty much wiped away all my fatigue. We continued on until we reached the end of our trail and had several choices but we opted to do the hike back instead which would be very difficult but more worth it than just going back the same route. The hike was exhausting with steep uphills but the reward was even more untouched and wild nature. There was even a waterfall. I unfortunately had a problem with my right ear, it somehow got busted a bit and I had though an insect went in which made my brain go on full panic. Joe poured some water in it and tried to check but said there was nothing, it kept on buzzing again and again, it was so scary and annoying. Each buzz would cause me to wince and this continued on the way down. We eventually did reach the starting point again, I took a dip at the river once again while Joe and Sophie stayed above ground to talk.

      Soon we were making our way back via the long walk, it was now raining too. We stopped by a convenience store and I grabbed another shirokuma. Now we had to rush a bit to catch the bus back as the trains were done for the day, we did a last zerg rush and caught the last bus back to Miyazaki. Here, we once again went to our favorite and only dinner restaurant. I took my usual bath while waiting for them to come back as I opted to go first to not draw too much suspicion. Joe had some problems with his grandfather as he had to step away for a call with his mom. Turns out he has Alzheimer's.

      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.

      Miyazaki

      July 22, 2021 in Japan ⋅ 🌧 27 °C

      Miyazaki itself was great, we saw that they had some food convention near the station and made a mental note to try it out the next time we were passing through. When we arrived the night before, we accidentally ended up in one of the night life districts but found ourselves an awesome restaurant with cheap and extremely delicious food. We also had to sneak in the hotel as I've only booked our room for one but we were three. This time, it was a more traditional room with futons on tatami flooring. We spread out our futons and tried to remember where to put them back. There was also a nice hot bath in the shower area so I was very keen to try that out. Sophie was a bit busy trading that night and the noise from her keyboard really annoyed me as I was trying to sleep. I did get a crazy lucid dream that night.Read more

      Beautiful day begin with private Olsen
      5000 yen for 90 min
      View nothing compare with previous, just pond view
      International breakfast
      Back track to the happiness statue which is close to udo Shrine. No regret
      Beautiful blue sea view and impressive statue

      Equally good is the Aya suspension bridge, surprise that we are scared.
      Off peak low crowd is the way to come

      Nicol cafe nearby, ulu place but tea cup instead of pot

      Long 2 hour drive back to kirishima yakakutei hotel, coincidentally look so familiar
      Rykan room is disappointing
      Ten course jap dinner with beef shabu shabu. Nice.
