Thank you so much!!
I said thank and good bye to Moriguchi-san, then headed to Naha by car with A-san.
Then got to airport.
Actually, A-san’s flight is 11:35 and my flight is 12:05, what a coincidence!
But we were not same terminal, so I said good bye to A-san at the airport.
I wanted drink beer with A-san though…next time!
I got on Peach, then landed to Osaka safely~.
Well, Okinawa travel finished for 2 weeks! But I still travel more.
I went to Kyoto from the Osaka airport by train, then got to Nakano-san’s house.
It’s souvenir to Nakano-san, Okinawan sweets Chinsuko.
Nakano-san served dinner for me, then I headed to Nagaoka-kyo for Thai massage.
Yes, I had booking for Thai massage! XD
Well, I came to Kyoto for Thai massage and wanted to see autumn leaves though, still early to see.
You know I’m lucky person that there was Gosho’s opening to public!
Whoa~!! What a beautiful~!!!! XD
I wanted to see that long time!!
Ramen at Shirakawa*
We walked through the road of philosophy.
So cooool!!! So beautiful!!!!
After Shinnyodo, there was grave.
The word on the grave stone is so cool!!
So funny! So interesting!!
It’s unusual grave and Buddha!!
The era is Genroku. So old.
It was worth to see!
I ate Takoyaki at Nakano-san’s house.
I met Shoken-san at Kawamichi-ya that Steven Jobs often came to this Soba restaurant.
Tea at Rokuyo-sha*
This is my favorite Sake of Yuzu.

But I didn’t go to Tenkaippin this time!(>_<)

We were lucky to see her!
I invited Leen and Koen to Nakano-san’s house and served Nabe*
Tea at Isetan.
Fushimi Inari shrine, my favorite place*
I came to Fushimi shrine many times but it was first time I saw bamboo Torii!
Matcha soft cream at kyoto station*
Delphi and Suzanne from France came to Nakano-san’s house by couch surfing next.
We had good conversation then.
Anyway, I enjoyed kyoto for a week, then went back to Fukui, my home town.
These are souvenir from Okinawa for my friend.
Yeah, the travel finished!
This time I met many interesting people as usual!!
I didn’t know about Okinawa, but it was like foreign country!
Architecture, castle, grave…it’s different from main land of Japan.
And Okinawa foods were so good!
It was just for 2 weeks trip, but not enough!
I wanna visit small island and north next!
I wanna go to Okinawa again when next summer come***
