Escape to Hamamatsu

Good place to rest from a big city!

I’m a citizen of a big city, so very often I feel that I need to escape. My dream was to watch the sunrise in Japan as it’s the first to see on Earth. I chose the city of Hamamatsu in Shizuoka Prefecture for my escape as it sits along the Pacific Ocean.  I ended up going to Bentenjima, a small place specializing in fisheries. I woke up at 5:00am and went to the coast to catch the sunrise. My way was through the inclined lines of pines and I found that amusing. The coast was almost deserted, I met just a few fisherman. And there it was, the sun came up!

On the next day I went to Hamamatsu Flower Park (by a bus to Kanzanji onsen) and spent a great sunny day among flowers and very kind and happy Japanese people.

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!
