View From Fukuurajima

The previous post was photos taken at Godaido Island. Now, some nice view we were able to see from Fukuura Island in Matsushima - which we got to by walking on the vermilion bridge.
Fellow tourists kept on offering to take our photos here.

  1. Wonderful place.
    Everyone should store the memory of here.
    I hope many people will visit here again.

  2. Japan is such a beautiful place n yet when i heard abt radioativity there i feel so kasihan for them, on top of the earthquake n tsunami

  3. @bengbeng,
    and yet, rather than wallow in self pity; they just need a helping hand and ways for life to return back to normal.

  4. Such a beautiful place. I wonder if people can visit that little island in your photos. With so many posts about your visits to Japan, I am sure you have been quite sad after its recent events.

  5. What are those lines for this the first photo?
    Seaweed plantation? Mussels? Pearls? ;)

    >You know, your photos make good pastcards.
    Thank you. Your mouth is so sweet lah.
    If I can find a publisher, I send you one dozen.

  6. The scenery much like those beautiful Chinese painting!

  7. Great scenery and very beautiful. Reminds me a lot of some of the areas in Mie Prefecture, I used to travel to.

  8. @AVCr8teur,
    Yeah, I am sad. Both for the nature and for the people affected and trying to regain back their normal life now.

    That is why, I think its important for us, who do love Japan, to remind people the beauty of the place and to not be afraid of coming to the country again.

  9. @London Caller,

    There is even an oyster festival where you can eat all you want in Feb. I wonder whether they'll hold the festival next year?

    My mouth sweet, ah? XD I need my "sweet mouth" to make a living. ;p

  10. @Alice,
    Chinese paintings have a serene and mystical quality to it.:)

    Its funny but when I think of Chinese paintings, I think of mountains and gorges. You?

  11. @Japan Australia,
    I should make a point to visit Mie someday. Maybe a stop st Isa shrine. Any recommendations of places to visit there? ^^

  12. so peaceful and serene, my kind of place.

  13. I love oysters!
    I think Hiroshima is the best place to taste oysters.
    But I prefer their okonomiyaki.
    Here in London, Osaka-style okonomiyaki is more common.
    It's a bit hard to find proper Hiroshima-styke okonomiyaki.

  14. @London Caller,
    Me too!
    I too enjoyed a lot of oysters when we were in Hiroshima. But I always prefer raw ones better than the cooked ones.^-^

    Okonomiyaki - mmmm.... The places we went to in Hiroshima seems always to have pork in their okonomiyaki so sadly, I have yet tasted them there (or Kansai style for that matter)
