Two years ago I visited Kamigoto Island to see my husband's hometown for the first time in my life. It was just beautiful. The natural beauty remains untouched here, although it takes only 1.5 hours by speed boat from Nagasaki. What surprised me most was there were almost no tourists there (I met a dog, though), despite the fact that it was late August, the high-season for travel. If you come here, you can monopolize the picturesque, beautiful beach all to yourself. Don't tell anybody...Visit there alone!

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.
