Mount Fuji is normally covered by snow all through the year but you can climb up to the top during summer (July and August)

Despite staying so many years in Japan, I have never had a chance to climb up to the top! If you did, please share with us your wonderful experience!

Enjoy beautiful Japan!

金閣寺The Golden Pavillion, Kyoto

 Have you ever been to this mignificent temple in Kyoto?

                                        The Golden Pavillion

The temple was founded in 1398 but later burned down by a mentally ill monk in 1950..
The present structure was rebuilt in 1955..but there are doubts whether the lavish gold leaves coating were really there originally..

Well, they are beautiful, aren't they?

It made this temple one of the most visited temples in Japan.

By the way, what is your travel plan this summer?
Or this winter?Or next spring?
           
Yokoso Japan!(Welcome to Japan)

KIYOMIZU TEMPLE, KYOTO

Kiyomizu Dera or Kiyomizu Temple is a Buddhist temple in Eastern Kyoto and a World Heritage site.

Let's enjoy the photos of different seasons at Kiyomizu Dera!


  
                                              Sakura in spring

    
                            Green leaves in early summer?
                             
  
                                 Colorful leaves in autumn


                                        Light up in all-seasons

The popular expression "to jump off the stage at Kiyomizu" is the Japanese equivalent of the English expression "to take the plunge". This refers to an Edo period tradition that held that, if one were to survive a 13m jump from the stage, one's wish would be granted. Two hundred thirty-four jumps were recorded in the Edo period and, of those, 85.4% survived. The practice is now prohibited.

   

Beneath the main hall is the Otowa waterfall, where three channels of water fall into a pond. Visitors can catch and drink the water, which is believed to have therapeutic properties. Drinking the water of the three streams is said to confer wisdom, health, and longevity. However, some Japanese believe that you must choose only two; if you are greedy and drink from all three, you invite misfortune upon yourself.

SAKURA & MOUNT FUJI

Look at this superb view!
Wow!
                                 Mount Fuji during sakura season

Look at this beautiful country..
Japan's beautiful scenery encourages me whenever I am getting weak and tired..

Life is about fighting, don't you think?
Fighting for a better life, fighting for happiness, fighting for love and respect etc.etc.
 
Whatever happens, no matter how my fighting turns out to be, I do love this beautiful country and the people.

Somehow I feel that  the bonding between me and Japan is so strong..and nothing could destroy that pure feeling.

Maybe I was born Japanese in my former life?

THANKS TO YOUR JAPANESE ANCESTORS..

(From the New York Times)

The stone tablet has stood on this forested hillside since before they were born, but the villagers have faithfully obeyed the stark warning carved on its weathered face: “Do not build your homes below this point!”

                                               Tsunami stone

記事は英語なのですが、[ここより下は家を建てはいけません」という翻訳でいいのでしょうか?

Aneyoshi's residents say this injunction from their ancestors kept their tiny village of 11 households safely out of reach of the deadly tsunami last month that wiped out hundreds of miles of Japanese coast and rose to record heights near here. The waves stopped just 300 feet below the stone.

“They knew the horrors of tsunamis, so they erected that stone to warn us,” said Tamishige Kimura, 64, the village leader of Aneyoshi.

日本での先祖の知恵は素晴らしいと思います。私たちよりもずっと前に生きていた方々の注意によって村が助かってますね。

タイでも同じようなものがあるそうですが、残念ながら古い言葉で現在読める人がいません。。なんて書いてあるのかわかりません。。

先祖から伝わってきたものは大事にすべきだと思います。

GANBARO NIPPON! (Hang in there Japan)

The husband-and-wife owners of a cafe in Takamatsu City, western Japan, have created flower messages to encourage the country's recovery from the March 11th disaster.
        
pink moss flower with the 5x35-meter flower arrangement forming the phrase "Ganbaro Nippon".

The couple began planting the flower arrangement a week after the disaster to cheer up the survivors of the quake and tsunami in northern Japan.

Ganbaro Nippon!

KYOTO'S SAKURA

I love the contrast between the pinkish white sakura and the red & black color of the roadside lamp!

You can come to enjoy Sakura blossoms in Japan every year from Mid-March to mid-April. The timing is crucial as once they start to bloom, they will stay on for only about 2 weeks..

Sakura trees are everywhere in Japan so even if you are on a business trip to a small town, please rest assured that there will be a chance to view sakura there.

Japan has so much to offer all year round. Please stay tune for the next article!
