Yesterday, I went to wisterias garden in Saitama prifecture.
It isn’t a big garden but very beautiful!! From one tree wisterias extends the whole garden. When I approaching it I smelled very sweet.
The tree is 1200 years old. I really suprised when I’ve heard it. Extremely tough!
But as you see the picture below it looks very old and bent. is it cause of the age?? There are also many bees. I felt unconfortable and couldn’t stay long :<
Some people don’t care but I do! Mostly big bees fly around the wisterias, so under the flowers is safe. If you don’t like bees and want to take a picture I recommend under the flowers but there are also small bees. Bee cereful ; )
And you can smile like me : )
This wieterias is natural monument and after their fully out the best season will be finished fast. I could see their best so I’m very lucky!! Yuka
昨日、藤を見に埼玉に行って来ました。牛島の藤と言われています。 そんなに大きくはありませんが、とても綺麗な藤でした。1本の木から藤の花が公園中に沢山広がって咲いていて、藤棚に近づいていくと藤の香りがすぐにわかりました。この木は樹齢1200年と聞き、とても驚きました！ 木は見るからにとても古そうで曲がっていましたが、始めからなのでしょうか・・・。 そこには沢山の蜂もいました:〈 私は苦手なので残念ながら長く居ることができませんした。大きな蜂は藤棚の周りを飛んでいて、小さな蜂は花の下を飛んでいるので私の様に蜂が苦手な方は写真を撮る時、花の下で撮ることをお勧めします！
I went to Kamakura this Monday with my friend. It was crowded very much because of Golden Week. You can see how much crowded from the picture
First we went to restrant for the lunch. All were very delicious in the dish from the vegetables in Kamakura.
Please try Kamakura-vegetables when you go there!
And then we went to the “Tsuruoka Hachiman-gu” to see the sprout of the ginkgo tree.
At the left of its stairway stood a 1000-year old ginkgo tree, which was uprooted by a storm in the early hours of March 10, 2010. I am very sorry about it but new sprouts are growing up! I hope that there are growing up very well.
Do you know that there is very famouse power spot
Next, we went to Yuigahama beach and walked on the beach. It was not cold weather so we enjoyed at there! We went to the bar near the beach because we had become tired walking too much!
This bar was in front of the beach so it was very nice location and had drinking a lot :p
After drinking, we went to see a huge statue of Buddha. He makes me calm. I took many pictures of buddha from various angles. I set my mobile-phone screen in the stand-by display of buddha! hehehe
It takes about one and half hour from the Andon to Kamakura and it’s quite different from Tokyo. Also we went to Yokohama after visit to there.
It’s near the Yokohama so I recommend to visit to Yokohama as well
It’s typical Dutch things.
Thank you very much stayed in the Andon and great time with us!
Please have a safe trip.
We hope to see you in the future!!
First of all, I have to introduce myself, I am Machiko, half-Thai/Japanese student from Thailand. Currently, I have been studying Japanese and also working part-time at Andon. After I have been here for over a year, I would like to share my intercross-cultural experience with you through the place that I have been to.
Today`s diary, I would like to introduce SCAI The Bathhouse, which is located in Yanaka district, SCAI is contemporary art gallery that is famous for introducing Japanese`s Avant-Garde Artists as well as welcome the world`s exceptional artists to exhibit their works in Japan.
Few weeks ago, I finally went to SCAI to see the exhibition of Thai^Film-Maker, Apichatpong WEERASETHAKUL, “NATIVE LAND” ..This exhibition has brought in me the attention of Thai history back in the period of Communists Era in Thailand.
I think even in Japan, young generation do not pay enough attention to the current politic or economy situation which is unfortunate, as well as Thailand. I think it was very worth to visit SCAI on that day.
If you would like to go to SCAI, please take JR Yamanote to Nippori Station, South Exit and walk through Yanaka Cementary for 6 minutes, the gallery will be on right side.
