What to Expect

I would like to take you to Arashiyama Sagano such as bamboo forest, Nonomiya Shrine, Tenryuji Temple, Nison-in, Gionji and the like. I'm sure you can enjoy the landscape from Arashiyama to Sagano, one of the finest spots in Kyoto. In particular the view form Togetsukyo Bridge crossing over Katsura River is very impressive.

Arashiyama is 382 meters above sea level and is populary known for cherry blossoms in spring and beautifully changing colors of autumn leaves in autumn.

You can enjoy walking through bamboo forests about 500 meters. They give us a sense of coolness, especially on May and June they grow lushly. When you walk through bamboo forest, you find Nonomiya Shrine. The shrine is populary known for a black shrine gate and a fortune turtle stone.
Tenryuji Temple is one of the 17 buildings designated as a World Cultural Heritage site. India ink painting called "Dragon glaring in eight directions" is on the ceiling in the Hatto Hall. No matter where you are, the dragon is staring at you. The sougenchi garden is a borrowed landscape garden as well as the first stroll-style garden in Japan.
If you climb up to Iwata Mountain about 20 minutes, you can go to Arashiyama Monkey Park. About 130 wild Japanese momkeys are playing in natural forms and you can command a panoranic view of Kyoto from observatory on Iwata Mountain.

Sagano is very quite and clam on the north side of Arashiyama. The Nison-in was built in the 9th century. The Branches of maple trees form a beautiful tunnel on the both sides of a gently sloping slope. Gioji Temple creates a quiet air. In spring cherry blossoms a bloom, in summer moss entirely grows in the garden, in autumn you can see beautifully changing colors of autumn leaves and in winter the garden is covered with snow all around.

Local typical sweets are sakura-mochi or rice cake with bean paste wrapped in a salted cherry leaf.

Hello, I'm HIDEo YOSHIda. Please call me HIDEYOSHI, the same name as the famous shogun who built the Osaka Castle in 1585.

I was born in Kobe and worked in Osaka for nearly 40 years. I would like to introduce the Kansai region to you ,including Kobe, Osaka, Kyoto, Nara, and Wakayama.

Kobe is one of the two largest ports in Japan, along with Yokohama. After the opening of the Port of Kobe in 1868, foreigners built their residences on the hillside of the Kitano-cho area, overlooking the ocean. Many of the foreign residences are now open to the public as museums, including the Weathercock House, with it's symbol weathercock on the triangle-shaped roof.
In Meriken Park, the red Port Tower (the city's landmark), creates a beautiful contrast against the white Kobe Marine Museum. The museum's design was inspired by the waves and sailing ships.

When you have a chance to visit Osaka, please join my tour. I'm sure you'll enjoy the interesting and historical, scenic spots. For example, Shin-Sekai is a downtown area with a strange mix of nostalgic atmosphere and contemporary energy. You can try local foods (kushikatsu, sushi, tempura) at a reasonable price. Billiken (a famous statue of the spirit of luck) will be waiting for you!!. Dotombori is a popular street with a lot of flashy signboards. Osaka is widely known as a "Kuidaore-no-machi", or literally "drinking and eating luxuriously to death." Osaka Castle was built by Toyotomi HIDEYOSHI in 1585. Oh, it's my residence, isn't it !

These days "The Wizarding World of Harry Potter" area in USJ, or Universal Studios Japan, is also attracting more and more people.

I'll be looking forward to seeing you !! read more
