 富士山は毎日見えつ初茄子 子規

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.

あら海のとりとめかたき寒さ哉  子規

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.

 春風や野にも山にも梅の花  子規

 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.
