Hi everybody. Thank you so much for checking my blog, I am really glad/surprised that so many people sees my photos with interest.
Today, we finally needed to move to Miyazaki city for tomorrow’s concert. We could just choose the easiest way, the high way, that would be maybe 1.5 hours, but we wanted to see a place that they call “the last village in Japan”, Shiiba-village on the way.
We thought that would take another hour longer to drive through the village, because even if the road is not so good, it’s actually a short cut to Miyazaki, so we started to drive. After about 2 hours of driving, we figured out that maybe we shouldn’t choose this option. We were still so far from the village, and then knew that is the main reason, that they call the place “the last village”. The road is narrow and so winding. We almost decided to go back to Kumamoto, and then we saw this scenery.
A spectacular view of the whole village, and you may be able to see the little houses in this photo.
And another one hour driving let us take a lunch and some sight seeing.
This is the middle of the village, and made about 300 years ago. It’s just so amazing that they could build something like this 300 years ago, and it’s still there.
And now, I am sitting a hotel room in Miyazaki, and it was 5pm when we got here. That makes that it took about 7 hours to get here. Oh no!!! I am so tired of driving.
