Last year in December I finally visited the Takachiho gorge in Miyazaki.
I rented a boat and rowed down the river. The water was calm and easy to navigate. The prospective of the waterfalls canyon from the boat is quite amazing.
Happy New Year to you and your families!
I hope you had a great holiday and that you got to spend time with the people you love.
Last year I tried for the first time osechi (Japanese New Year’s cuisine). We bought six boxes containing a huge variety of foods, such as lobsters, shrimps, fish cakes, black sweet beans, eggs custard, burdock roots, lotus roots, carrots, sweet potatoes etc. Everything was delicious and the way the food was presented was really impressive.
My 2018 was full of very significant events and I’m grateful for everything I received and for all the amazing students I met.
May you have a bright and prosperous 2019 filled with happiness and good blessings!
You can see these wooden sculptures in 丸池. I found them very interesting. When there, you should also check the close by pond out.
The water there is very clear, almost transparent. You can even see the bottom of the pond. Many people were also drinking water from a small fountain nearby. The place looked great!
Unfortunately the 2019 Halloween week is over. Last week we played a lot of fun games such as Halloween bowling, cockroach race, Halloween basketball, blow up the balloon and others.
Thanks to all the people who came for this event and I’m looking forward for the next one.
Halloween Week has officially started today. It`s finally on!
You have until Friday, November 2nd, to come on in and have some fun with Gorilla 先生。
We are going to play a lot of fun halloween games.
And of course there are quite a few treats waiting for you.
I’m looking forward to playing and having fun with you!
Last week I was in Osaka for three days on a business trip. Osaka offers a great variety of street foods, such as takoyaki, skewers, dumplings, etc. Takoyaki is hands down my favourite.
I had also the opportunity to visit Osaka castle, which is quite impressive. I loved running around the moat that sourrounds the castle. It is one of the best running courses I’ve ever tried.
Lastly, I took a stroll in Dotonburi. I was really impressed by its bright and busy streets and hidden back alleys.
Last month I went to Kumamoto during the O`bon holidays. Once there, I had the opportunity to visit the stunning Kumamoto castle. Although the castle complex sustained severe damages due to the 2016 earthquake, it`s still a very impressive structure.
It is estimated that it will take decades to fully restore the castle from the earthquake blow.
I can`t wait to see it fully repaired in all its splendor.
It`s been a while since my last post, hope all is fine.
Last Monday I went to Kagoshima Prefectural Museum of Culture Reimeikan.
The museum displays a great number of cultural and historical documents, as well as work of art, fine articrafts, japanese swords (i.e. katana), old-time living tools and many others historical remains and models rapresenting different time periods (from the prehistoric days to early modern time).
Visitors can learn a lot about Kagoshima and its culture. It allows you to see the beauty of Kagoshima and how its arts and history have been developed.
If you haven`t had the chance to visit this museum, I`d higly recommend to check it out when you have some free time. I promise you won`t regret it.
