 山桜夢を埋めて散りにけり 子規

Shonan-daira is located on the mountain border between Oiso and Hiratsuka. I walked up from JR Oiso Station for the first time in a while. The observation deck is one of the best spots in Shonan. The pink of mountain cherry trees stands out in the blue Sagami Bay. I watched the sunset over Mt. F

 山里に恋をはなれし桜哉 子規

Spring has come to Shonan. Many Cherry Someiyoshino are in full bloom at the top of Mt. Azuma in Ninomiya, and azaleas and daffodils are also in bloom. People came to see the cherry blossoms and relaxed, and it was like a paradise. I heard woodpeckers calls and distant temple bells.

岬めぐりの旅,Cape tour,海角巡遊之旅


 あなたがいつか話してくれた岬を僕は訪ねてきた…(「岬めぐり」山上路夫作詞 より)

I like capes. I felt a sense of travel and visited many capes, and have many memories. My heart was broken when I was a student, and I traveled by bus along the coastline of the Izu Peninsula like Yamamoto Kotaro’s “Misaki Meguri.”. The journey around the cape continues.

我喜歡海角。感受旅情,巡遊很多海角,回憶也很多。當我還是一名學生時,我失戀了,我乘坐公共汽車在伊豆半島的海岸線上旅行,就像Yamamoto Kotaro的“海角之旅”。海角之旅將繼續。

 西行の命なりけりはつさくら 子規

Spring has come to the Koide River in Chigasaki. The early blooming Kawazu-zakura and the winter scarlet cherry trees are in full bloom. The petals are lit by the sunset like a peach blossom village. I also enjoyed the sweet smell of rape blossoms.

The spring of the lunar calendar has come. Although it was still cold and the real spring did not come, the flowers of today’s season, such as Nanohana, Sazanka and daffodils, were blooming well on Mt. Azuma in Shonan Ninomiya.

Cold days continue even after Rissyun ( the first day of spring in the lunar calendar ). Rain to snow is forecast for Kanto today. I miss the coming of spring. On the Chigasaki coast, many surfers braved the bitter cold to enjoy surfing in the sunset.

2022 The first sunset of the year falls on the Izu Peninsula. The sky is clear and the silhouette of Mt. Fuji can be clearly seen.The volcanic smoke from Owakudani in Hakone is flying. It started this year.




The year has finally come to an end. Chigasaki beach was bitterly cold with cold air, but we could see the last sunset of the year. I hope that next year will be a good year.
