My 5 year old waterproof pentax camera is not working anymore ... honestly, it's sad.
I will travel abroad starting Sunday and probably go on swimming and hiking so i decided to buy a new waterproof camera ... many suggested to have this Nikon's Coolpix digital camera ... so i did!
One more thing i like with this digital camera is that it has a build in wifi and NFC or Near Field Communication Technology. I can easily tag photos from camera to my smartphone. It also have a GPS that coordinates and maps my shots!
Usually ... whenever there is long holidays in Japan ... many people are traveling in other countries ---like my daughter who is enjoying her travel in Cebu, Philippines with friends right now. Some are having a vacation somewhere around Japan.
It's expected that during this holiday season ... the roads and sightseeing spots here in Japan are very crowded.
Before, i usually make this opportunity to travel abroad but this time ... i prepared to stay at home and be quiet ... not because i got sick :P .... truth is, i really don't want to be in crowded area anymore!
Besides ... i will be going out of the country next week so i need to save more money and energy too.... 😍
This is Koinobori or carp streamers as Japanese traditional symbol on celebrating the boys good future and that they will grow healthy and strong. It's a part of GW's holiday on the celebration of Children's Day every May 5.
I took this photo from Nihon Daira ... with the view of Shimizu District and Suruga Bay.
Well ... to everyone in Japan ... wherever you go, whatever you do ... have fun and be safe!!!
The amazing view at Yume no tsuribashi (suspension bridge) in Kawane
Had this about 8 km hike back and forth just to reach this marvelous 90 meter long and 10 meter above the amazing emerald green lake suspension bridge.
I am scared of heights but i challenged to cross the bridge. Only 10 people are allowed to cross at a time ... the bridge is too narrow as expected and it was swaying as you walk! I even had no time to look at the beautiful view around but it was really a fun experience.
I did stand that scary bridge but what made me shocked most was the way back ... everyone must climb more than 300 steps stairs on the other side of the river! Wow that was really very tough! I hate aging loool!!!
Anyway... i made it all--- the long walk, the crossing, the climbing and it was a fulfilling challenge !!!
