trek

Konnichiwa Aki,
Your take such beautiful pictures.
Arigato

It's nice to see your country through your eyes. Places I would not get to see even if I came to visit. I think my favorite is still the one in the canoe floating down the river, but it's a tough choice. That one with the food on the fire...yum

Wanishi, Jana

Beautiful!

Thanks for bringing these places to our side of the world, Aki!

I am beginning to think you go camping almost as much as Charles does...

Janifer's right about that picture of the wild oysters (and hot sake!) on the grill! That's the way to camp! :party :party

(Were the oysters something native to the area of the Miyama campground, or did you bring them with you? Is this a dumb question that I could answer myself if I took the trouble to look on a map?)

Thanks again for posting your beautiful photographs!

:sunny

Oh, my!

Aki - how you make me yearn to visit the places you do.

>>and trekking Kumanokodo (a old stone-paved streets of Kumano.... :wub I wish that were possible for me...that sounds wonderful.

Of course, I have always liked oysters, so that would be a good thing on top of a great trek!

Thanks for sharing with us.

Engineer speaking...

...did you notice Aki's grill? It has three levels so you don't have to chase the oysters all over the place.

Very clever, Aki. :ola

That is an improvement I could live with. Now I wonder if that would work trying to turn a steak? :chin

Do you think AKI has ever had West Coast BC oysters? We have picked them off the beach for 26 years in front of my dads place (north of Qualicum) on Vancouver Island.


Oysters Rockefeller! mmm - mmmm - mmmmm :o


P.S. Vote OYSTERS not OKRA ! ;)

Thanks !

Konnichiwa(Hello), Thomas & Janifer
Arigato(Thank you) for your reply instantly. Although there is no snow here,
since it is quite cold, canoeing is impossible. especially ,for my wife who are
sensitive to the cold.:o

Mary,
Those oysters were extracted in the sea of Miyama.
( "Miyama" Town means " the town of sea and mountain" in English. )
Wild oysters is a present from the father of my friend who is a fisherman.
Those were completely delicious! Because they were very fresh and seasoned
with Pacific Ocean's deep salt water.;)

Suz,
Kumanokodo has very old history. It was the way of faith from the Heian period
(it started in A.D. 794)It was built as a pilgrimage route to Kumano Shrine.
This way is also the symbol of Japanese culture.
Although this way is away forgotten and covered by moss by the spread of cars,
recently, It is in fashion to trek along this way among persons of middle or
advanced age's people.

Morgan,
This wise grill is the product of snowpeak, Inc. of Japan. The most camping
tools are imported from USA, but products of snowpeak, Inc. is original
and charming.

Chester,
Thanks. I want to enjoy a camp in Canada too.

Rick,
We eat wild oysters on Pacific both sides. And Both of our oysters are
"the Pacific Ocean tastes"!
