Dreamy Shibazakura Heaven at Chichibu, Saitama

Hello everybody!

Here are some photos from last weekend.

Enjoy! ^^


Last Saturday, I had a solo trip to Chichibu, Saitama. Ever since I saw photos of Shibazakura (Pink Moss) in the internet, I’ve always wanted to visit such pink heaven! Unfortunately, for the past 4/5 years here in Japan, I wasn’t able to do so (reason = TIME ;_;).

Though I came quite early (the park just opened last April 15/16, I think), seeing the abundance of the pretty shibazakura .. I was so stunned! The place doesn’t even look like real! *_*

Anyway, before I go and show all the photos, here are some ~artsy~ photos I took during my “journey”, haha!


Went to Omiya station to ride the Takasaki Line (local) for Kumagaya. From Kumagaya, I took the Chichibu line.. and unexpectedly, I got to ride a pretty limited express train!

Bonus: There weren’t soooo many people!

Hokkaido Day 3: Otaru City

I really loved the train ride to Otaru.

Imagine riding a train with this body of water as your view? It felt so surreal!
