Rainy season started.

Hi, everyone!
How are you doing?

The below huge sailing ship from Russia came to Nagasaki in the end of April as an annual festival of Nagasaki called “Sailing Ship Festival”

Nagasaki city is having a rainy season right now.
Everyday is rainy and cloudy, but these hydrangea flowers bring you a smile.
You can see these beautiful flowers along the river side, it’s also neighborhood of the hostel.

It was a sunny day a few days ago, so we decided to take a walk with our guests.
These guests are from Netherland.
We talked about lot of things like music, art, Japanese culture and so on.

We came to the main shrine of Nagasaki called “Suwa Shrine”.
It’s about 10minute-walk from the hostel.

We luckily saw Japanese wedding ceremony at the shrine.
It was so beautiful.

This shrine has small guardian dogs with interesting gimmicks.
This dog make your dream or wishes come true if you roll the dog like this.

After the shrine, we went to a local market.
We saw a dragon dance which is one of main performances in the festival “Kunchi” that takes place in October at Suwa Shrine.

We had a lunch at the market with our friends 🙂

It was a nice walk!
All we have to do is waiting for Summer while watching beautiful hydrangea flowers.
Thanks for reading!
Have a good day!

Autumn leaves

Hi, everyone.
It’s getting colder and colder in Nagasaki.
Looks like winter is coming.

We took a walk to Japanese garden with beautiful Autumn leaves.
It took about 15minutes to get there.

On the way to the garden, we saw this stone bridge covered with leaves.

And we had Champon for a lunch.

And kept walking…

Here we come.

This is a traditional gate for the garden.

In the garden, we saw these beautiful Autumn leaves.

There is a Japanese traditional house. Inside the house, you can enjoy some Matcha.

Had a look at the garden.

Green trees, blue sky, red leaves. What can we get more?

There was Koto playing inside the house.
It feels so good to hear Koto playing while looking at Autumn leaves.

We headed back to the hostel.
We encountered these stone buddha statues.

Somebody was drying these Japanese persimmon. Looks so yummy but we never touched them because we are not allowed.

The weather was so nice this cat felt asleep.

Nice characters.

We came across this shrine.

If you touch a part of this god caw, the part of your body gets better according to a traditional history.

We had a cake after getting back to the hostel.
It was a nice lunch break.

This dog like our entrance so much he doesn’t want to stand up.
He was there for about 10minutes.

Thanks for reading!
Have a wonderful Autumn day!!
