A walk in the rain through three hamlets

September is a lovely month, more so because of its rain…
One weekend, I decided to see what is in store for my photo shoots…

The above shot is the hamlet where I live…
My house is actually more to the right side of the shot, and out of range…
The island in the back is reputed to be owned by some famous personality…

I source most of my bamboo, including the edible bamboo shoots from this bush…
Many bamboo-bush owners are too happy to see people cutting their bamboo as these plants are getting to be rather invasive…

A little short of one kilometer away lies this picturesque hamlet…
I pass by this place each time I commute to work…
The islands at the back are uninhabited, and are favored fishing grounds for sport fishermen…

Biologically, these are banana trees…
But not the kind found in Malaysia (my home country)…
Their fruits are really tiny, much like the size of the little finger of adults…
In Okinawa, I think the fiber is used to make clothes…

Further deeper into the hills, the air is fresh…
Where wild animals and birds roam quite freely…

Roads are well paved…
And up we go…

p7090388a

On the downturn, was greeted by this misty scene…
This spot is about two kilometers from our place…

p7090390a

A few steps forward, the view opened up to the Japan Inland Sea, shrouded in mist…

p7090391a

And the house with the red roof comes into perspective…
This is the hamlet where I stay, shot from the hills above…

There is one segment of the journey where fallen leaves are aplenty…

p7090425a

And the Guardian Gods provide safety and comfort…

Further down the path, Sumiyoshi Shrine awaits…

p7090462a

The third hamlet comes into view, with patches of pumpkin and sunflowers…

  1. I’ve got a sense of tranquility looking at these pictures of yours. They reminded me of the time when my fellow trainees and I were to jog every single morning on a mountain foot in Kedah.

    The breeze was chilly, and it was a great way to start our day off. Thanks for posting.

Thank you for visiting!
