Fukui Prefectural Dinosaur Museum is everybody's favorite in Fukui because...it's simply exciting! When you enter the museum, the first thing waiting for you is a gigantic dinosaur robot that moves, screams, scares the hell out of you as though you are lost in the movie, 'Jurassic Park'. The exhibits are extensive and there are variety of events always going on to entertain visitors. On my way back home I bought a 'Dinosaur Egg' at the museum's souvenir shop. It said I could hatch it at home. Excited, I brought it back and gave it a try. You can see in the photos how 'my dinosaur boy' was born into this world! This 'Dinosaur Egg' can be bought at the souvenir shop of the museum or at tourists' spots nearby.

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
