Autumn in Yamaha Resort, Tsumakoi

This resort is located in hilly Kakegawa ... property of Yamaha corporations.  There are many sports facilities around like swimming pools, archery, horse riding, golf and many more. 
Everyone can enjoy their spa too.  The buffet meals are excellent... we did enjoy the Japanese, Chinese and Western dishes.

Reach out and support our kababayan!!!

A heart breaking situation is happening in the Philippines lately especially in Visayas Region ... 
In behalf of my group, the Philippine NAKAMA Organization here in Shizuoka City...  we're deeply concerned by the impact of super Typhoon Yolanda or internationally known as Typhoon Haiyan. 
Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have been affected by this devastating calamity.  

Charity and humanity knows no boundaries.  We are appealing to everyone especially here in Shizuoka City to give donations of whatever you can to assist the victims and the needy in Visayas Region especially in Leyte and Samar.  A little goes a long way... so do help if you can ... よろしくお願いします m(_ _)m 

"When the oceans rise and thunder roar ...
I will soar with You above the storm
Father You are King over the flood...
I will be still, know You are God".
