Just another weekend and I should go some where. The destination is really unknown for me where is Semboku in Akita, Japan.

This trip is mainly for my desire that is riding on super trains, Super Komachi (Akita Shinkansen) and Hayabusa (Tohoku Shinkansen). These 2 trains are new shinkansen here in Japan and the big thing is they are very beautiful train :D

Starting with Super Komachi from Tokyo station, I decide to stop my destination at Semboku, the nearest city in Akita for Akita Shinkansen. This city actually has a lot of places to visit and 2 places I want to see where is Dakigaeri valley and Tazawa lake.

On the first day, I arrive and be ready to walk around at noon time so Dakigaeri is the first destination. Dakigaeri is a forest near by Kakunodate station and mostly people here are Japanese (I think I’m only Thai here). Autumn colors contrast with water color from the falls are very nice to see here and worth my few hours before sunset in the evening. That’s such a very good experience of my life :)

Dakigaeri valley is named from its terrain that the path is quite narrow then visitors need to holding each other while walking (Daki = to hold or to hug). Also Mikaeri waterfall inside Dakigaeri velley is named from its look that it’s so beautiful when you move your eyes out of the fall, you will need to look back to it. So sweet huh?

Second day again is the whole day raining in Semboku but at least I should go to see somewhere. Tazawako, the deepest lake in Japan is the place. Just one round circuit bus from Tazawako station, having lunch near by the lake, riding on boat trip to see surrounding lake then walk a bit further that is just my day. Raining can’t stop me for traveling. :D

Late afternoon, I come back to wait for the Super Komachi to Morioka to connect with Hayabusa there that is to complete my trip. At Tazawako station, there is a small exhibition about Korean series named IRIS. This series have been filmed in Akita so I realize that Akita is the most beautiful place in Japan or at least in every provinces I used to visit.

Autumn color and Cloudy color in this blog will remind me to come back here in Akita again :D

Last move in Tohoku area for my big trip before moving south.

Hiraizumi is a bit far from Sendai where is located in Iwate. 15 minute bicycle ride from Hiraizumi station, the beautiful world heritage is waiting.

Because I had to take Shinkansen back to Tokyo in the early evening at Sendai so I have only a little time to take photos before riding back to the station for the train to Sendai.

Only that, I still perceived Hiraizumi beauty and sacredness. Natural and what human built are really matched :)

Keep going with me to my next move on my #Japan #bigtrip :D

The second day of my long trip moved from Sendai to Yamagata. The destination was Yamadera (Temple on the mountain).

Actually the name of Yamadera is Risshakuji located on Mt.Hoju-san Risshakuji.

The weather was cloudy and fog that’s quite another kind of beautiful on the mountain.

1,100 steps to the top of Yamadera couldn’t make me tired due to those nice views :)

My #Japan #bigtrip still keep continuing. Hold tight and let’s go with me :D

27 September 2012

It was the day to start a big long trip in Japan.
It was 1 day after I finished my job in Japan and took Shinkansen directly to Sendai … :)

On the first day, it was the short route to Matsushima-Kaigan to visit the place that named 1 of 3 best view point in Japan.

Surrounding areas are Fukuura, the small island where the long red bridge led to and Zuiganji temple that also got effect from Tsunami last year.

Enjoy #Japan #bigtrip with me here. There are 10 days left :D
