Walking through the mountains of Kamakura in the May rain. My mind is washed by the mist of the green and fragrance of young leaves. The coolness of light rain is also pleasant. The colorful flowers stand out against the fresh green. The green gradation of the mountains of Kamakura seen from Tenen is beautiful …. The Bee Gees’ “First of may” was a good song. Let’s come back.
A feature of early summer. Hamahirugao are blooming on the Chigasaki coast. The pretty pink petals are swaying in the wind. The language of flowers is “bond” and “tender love.” This scenery can be enjoyed until around June. Summer is just around the corner.
I visited Jogashima Island at the southern tip of the Miura Peninsula after a long absence. The view of Mt. Fuji rising sharply over Sagami Bay is superb. It is said that in the past, MINAMOTO no Yoritomo also visited there. I was lucky enough to see Diamond Fuji on this day. A haunting landscape.
It rained that day. Rain stopped in the evening and the sky began to shine. For the first time in a long time, I was able to meet the dynamic sky. This gem of a sunset gave me a sense that good things were likely to happen tomorrow.
The cherry blossoms are early this year. Mt. Azuma in Shonan is full of flowers. Rapeseed, camellia, iris, daffodils, azaleas and cherry blossoms are in full bloom. The setting sun and the sea were visible and the scenery was like heaven.
Mimosas are in bloom. In Italy, people present each other with mimosa flowers on March 8. It is native to Australia. The language of flowers is “grace,” “secret love” and “friendship.” It looks like spring has finally arrived.
I like the view of the sunset from the peninsula. View the sunset sinking into the Kii Channel from Shirasaki Marine Park in Yura Town, Wakayama Prefecture. It is said that the Shirasaki Coast predates the birth of human beings. The orange of the setting sun stands out against the white limestone. The mountains of Shikoku and Awaji Island look hazy.
I visited the Soga Bairin in Odawara City for the first time in two years. It was the home of the Soga clan in the Kamakura period and is associated with “Soga Story,” one of the three major revenge attacks in Japan. 35000 plum trees seemed to herald the arrival of spring. The setting sun shone through the flowers of plums and waubai, reflecting the color of the blue sky.
The deep cold has passed and the first day of spring is just around the corner. The season is gradually approaching spring. In Mt. Azuma in Ninomiya Town, rapeseed blossoms are in full bloom. The language of flowers is’ cheerful ‘and’ cheerful. The orange of the setting sun, the yellow of the flowers, and the green of the stems stand out so well that I can feel the signs of spring.
The year 2023 has dawned. It will be a wonderful sunny day this year. At Chigasaki Beach, surfers wait for the first sunrise at sea. An annual view. I look forward to welcoming you to my channel again this year!
