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The museum displays a great number of cultural and historical documents, as well as work of art, fine articrafts, japanese swords (i.e. katana), old-time living tools and many others historical remains and models rapresenting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.
I really love Japanese food and among my favorites there are okonomiyaki and tempura rice bowl.
I ate this okonomiyaki in Hiroshima. It was very good but I like the Osaka-style one best.
This was a delicious tendon I ate in Beppu last May. Probably one of the best tendon I’ve ever had in Japan so far.
A wide range of delicacies are available here in Japan and I’m up to try everything it has to offer.

Two weeks ago I went to Yufuin, in Oita. As I was walking down the main street there, I crossed a lovely Neko cafe and I decided to check it out. All the cats there were super cute and fluffy. They were all Norwegian forest cats. This breed of cat is originally from Norway, in Northern Europe. It’s very big and strong, with a top coat of glossy, long, water-shedding hairs and a woolly undercoat for insulation.
