Japan’s Aokigahara Jukai

A quiet, mystical place it is, Japan’s Aokigahara Jukai.

Located in Yamanashi-ken Fujikawaguchiko, it is infamous as a suicidal spot in Japan.
A vast dense forest heavily sheltered by shrubs and trees, daylight hardly penetrates the making the whole place dark even at noon.

It isn’t a mere co-incident that Aokigahara also known as the “Sea Of Trees” is a place of doom. A place where you are bound to lost sense of directional because every path looks the same. Here is a dead zone for cell phones and compasses won’t be working due to the rich deposits of magnetic iron in the area’s volcanic soil.
It is extremely sad to know that the “Sea Of Trees” is said to be “a perfect place to die” for determined suicidals. Because they understand they will never ever walk out of the forest alive again.

Actually, Aokigahara Jukai is not quite the spooky and creepy image everyone have. There are in fact a few hiking trails for adventurous nature lovers to enjoy. Conducted tours are available too. But of course, venturing out of these trails are strictly forbidden and taken at your own risk.

From the amount of suicides, Aokigahara Jukai is undoubtedly nothing but an eerie haunted place to many. But in the eyes of mother nature, this is just a forest, beautiful, magical and full of life…

It is a place which I would want to visit someday. But NOT ALONE for sure!

Tokyo’s sakura

The streets of Tokyo is covered in shades of soft pink now as Cherry blossom fully bloomed. They are going to stay for a week after full blossom before the petals started dropping off. Beauty is short-lived… How true …

Consider yourself really lucky if you happen to be in town now without the faintest idea to see Sakura. This year, Sakura started blooming about 10 days earlier because of the warmer weather as compared to annual years.

Before Sakura,,, there is the Cedar Pollen allergy!
They finally caught me this year (v__v`)…
Walking down the streets without wearing a mask?
The mere thoughts of it makes me sneeze (>o<)=3
The sad thing is, I would have to battle with pollen allergy for every spring (T-T)
Cherry blossom wouldn’t be something to be looking forward to anymore, perhaps…

But seeing people wearing masks while enjoying cherry blossom viewing sort of bought a sense of relief. At least I am not alone struggling with pollen allergy (@`v`@)

Streets lined with sakura

Seasonal food / Fried oyster (Kaki Furai)

Loves winter when my favorite food fried oyster (Kaki Furai) is once again showing up on the menu of restaurants.
Japanese bread crumbs (panko) coated, “Kaki furai” is deep fried and topped with tonkatsu sauce, served with tartar sauce for dippings. Try it and you will know why I can’t resist it.

Regrettably, I had ONLY eaten it twice last year.
Of course! That was nowhere enough (-_- x)

My “Kaki Furai” eating spree started from early Dec last year.
And … that’s how the throat inflammation came about (; -__-) …

No way, I am going to stop it.
Today, its Kaki Furai AGAIN for energy top up v(^-^)v
Back to work again after that.

Snowing day in Tokyo

Unexpected heavy snow, greeted Tokyo 3 days ago, paralyzing the city’s transport system. My blog took a few day’s break too (LOL)

The morning when it snowed, the room was freezing. Lying on the bed, I could hear the sound of the falling snow. Unlike the rain that goes pitter patter, snow is almost silent. But it has a rhythm that just sound so pleasant, so soothing to the ears.

The curtains, drawn aside to reveal falling flakes and streets engulfed in snow! Of course, my excitement hit the max! It rarely snow in Tokyo and this was the first this winter.

Deciding that I need a celebration, I took a train downtown to Tokyo dome.
And this proves to be an extremely bad decision!
Many times, I came close to stumbling due to the slippery ground from the frozen ice (>_<) Next, the train!
They stopped operating due to the heavy snow (v__v`)
Unbelievable! This could happen in Tokyo!?

I got myself home, finally after some big efforts. What is so interesting about snow? It sets me thinking…
But next year, I will still be looking forward to the snow again, I know.
That’s how human are, full of contradictions (LOL)

With the falling snow, Japanese houses look somehow westernized.

The pictures are the only merit I could find for travelling down to Tokyo dome on a snowing day. And not to forget, lunch buffet in the hotel (^-^)v
Lunch buffet

The next day after the snow. They streets look so dirty. Where is the pure white, fluffy image of snow?? Streets after the snow

Cold winter in Tokyo

Tokyo generally has a mild winter with few snowfall.
But Tokyo’s winter is still a very cold one. The picture below should be able to tell.

Even the doves flocked together to sunny spots to keep themselves warm {{(>_<)}}
It is just the opposite during summer. Gathering near puddle of water and hiding under the shade of trees are what they love doing.

It is no doubt the basic instinct of living beings to adapt to the changing environment. But the “realistic action” of these doves couldn’t help but put a smile to my face (^-^)
