The Hitsujiyama Flower Park is especially spectacular in April and early May when it is covered by pink carpets of flowers called Shibazakura, meaning “a lawn of cherry blossoms.” It really looks like that in person! I was charmed by the photos I saw through the internet and decided I must plan a trip to visit!

I love Japan very much! I like small towns of Japan where I can watch people doing their business and talk to them carefully. They're always friendly. I like Japanese gardens where I can just sit or walk and take my time. Also I like Shinto Jinja as being there I feel in peace. I like to watch sunsets and then to dine in some small local places. I like to soak into onsen after a long day of wandering. I like Japanese crafts very much as all items are made with great taste and skill. Nihon wo daisuki desuyo! My photos from Japan I also place here: Matane!

It's really lovely place! Would like to visit this park with my family for leisure :D
That's good then. After chilling in the scenery, trying a new experience doing pottery and finishing with Soba!

Thank you! I always regret that photos can't express the excitement of live picture of that. Above, there is a scope plus warm wind - "wonderland"! )))
