Another post to make Yvonne green with envy. I'm so "baik" kan, Yvonne? Kakaka
In 2008 we combined a trip to see cherry blossoms and played with a bit of snow in the month of March. Last year, we combined vieweing the beauty of autumn leaves (koyo) and experiencing falling snow. But it was rather a crazy endeavour as we travelled from Kyushu to Shikoku, from one end of Honshu to its tip and then to the island of Hokkaido for a bit of both! Oh! Don't forget the rain too!
Torrential rain is to be expected when one is in between seasons. Right, Rurousha?
Autumn leaves, plenty of it too...
Kyushu Island representative : Yufuin. At Lake Kinrinko to be exact. Beware! There's a sleeping dragon in the lake!
Shikoku Island. At Ritsurin Koen, one of the most beautiful park in Japan located in Takamatsu.
Honshu Island representative. In Nara.
Another Honshu Island representative.This burst of colours we found in Tokyo. At a cemetery.
Now, snowing time... where else? In Hokkaido. Actually, we've only been to Hakodate.
Can you see the white dots of the snowflakes in the first photo? Zaini tried hard to capture it with our el-cheapo camera. xD
This though, doesn't look all that fun. It's just bleak and COLD!
Oh yes... and then there's rain. We need rain here. NOW! Selangor is experiencing water shortage now. My area is having low water pressure issue. I crossing my fingers that there'll be no water cuts! o.O
That's a photo of a cold woman with a swollen gum in front of the Daibutsu in Kamakura. I had a painfully swollen gum for three days when we were in Japan! So not fun!
This post somewhat made me feel cooler. I think I need to do more cool season posts here to cool-off myself! Muahaha!!!
