My new toy!

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!

Momijiyama Japanese Garden

Momijiyama Japanese Garden is located in Sumpu Park.
It's very near in my place but it's been a while since i visited here ... 
Mt. Fuji miniature 
We can always find happiness everywhere !  

We enjoyed the matcha and Japanese sweet at the tea pavilion.

 What a soothing place to relax. 

I think the best season to visit here is autumn... as the name of the garden is Momijiyama - mountains of red leaves ;-)

Golden Week in Japan!

How's your Golden Week here in Japan?

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!!!
