Kumamoto

on march 20, there is a holiday in Japan, spring day. We went with the school that day to Kumamoto. You maybe now the bear with the same name, that is the mascot of it.

We fist went to a mountian. but it was so misty that we did not see anything. The trip was with  the english-school. So we had a nice group of people that could guide us. After the lunch we went to a Japanese garden. The weather was not great but it was nice to see my second garden here. The other one I saw earlyer this week.

The last stop was at Kumamoto castle. Fukuoka had also a castle like that but it was burned down. The outside was beautiful. The inside was ruined, because they wanted to make it modern.

But even though the weather was bad, it was a great day. I met a lot of new people and it was fun. Next time better weather.

The lantern festival

The second part of the trip to Nagasaki was visiting the Lantern festival. This festival is there to celebrate the Chinese New year.  2013 is the year of the snake. There were a lot of lantern XD. At the end we were able to see the Emperor’s walk. Sadly we did not see the festival by night. Because we already needed to leave at 5 o’clock.

Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum

11 february is a Holiday in Japan. So there was no school. We all went to Nagasaki for the day there we visited first the Nagasaki Atomic Bomb Museum. We also went to the peace park and saw ‘Grond Zero’  I can not describe how I felt but it was the same from when I visited the Anna Frank house in Amsterdam. I think pictures say more then 1000 words.
