Back in September me and my boyfriend went to Kinchakuda to see cosmos and red spider lilies. It was a season of blooming and it was absolutely beautiful. Endless fields of bright colors, rocky river banks, mountains on background of blinding blue sky – that’s the thing you don’t want to miss if you are in Japan around beginning of autumn. It was still pretty hot and as always lots of people but you could walk around in cosmos fields, even make yourself a bouquet and stay there as long as you want!
The only turn down is crowd. You can’t snap a decent picture without people on the background doing the same thing. In Japan it’s all about taking a good picture. Photography is on the top list of Japanese favorite hobbies – everyone and I mean everyone carries a digital camera on themselves at all times. I am no different of course. When I go back to Russia and take out my tiny canon to snap a picture of a lunch or flower growing by the pavement I look odd to others. It’s one of those things that shows I’ve been in Japan for too long.. ^-^
