A Walking Maiden and A Shapeshifting Tanuki

There are many cool people in Japan. Most of them may be said to be from the entertainment industry. For example, I am sure that people who are familiar with Japan, would definitely have heard of Takuya Kimura, otherwise known as KimuTaku, or the girl idol group called AKB48. Truthfully, I am not much of a fan of such famous celebrities. However, I am a fan of a Japanese writer called Tomihiko Morimi, I definitely think that he is worth mentioning and sharing about. For one, his novels are extremely entertaining, with plenty of adventures to go around for all readers.

Nagano

Many tourists know Tokyo, Hokkaido, Okinawa, Osaka, but many don’t know about the prefectures at the center of Japan. This particular prefecture is called Nagano. I have never been to Nagano, so I want to go there. There are many good sightseeing spots and historical buildings. I will introduce Zenko Temple, Matsumoto Castle, and Nojiri Lake.

“The Spectacular Prefecture”

Japan has 47 prefectures and these prefectures have different attractions to visit. Above all, I recommend visiting Kumamoto prefecture now, because the big earth quake have hit there and they received a lot of damages. Now, there, many people are changing the style of their cities and fixing their buildings, so we can see the new styles and feel their passions. Therefore, I will write about the introductions about Kumamoto city.

Okinawa

There are a lot of places where I would like to visit around the world. However, this time I chose one prefecture in Japan. The place which I would like to visit is Okinawa. I have never been to Okinawa but I know Okinawa has beautiful beaches. I have heard from my classmate that the distance between beach and school, hotel and house is very close so people in Okinawa can go to beach easily. Things that I want to do in Okinawa are just to go to the beach in the early morning and taking fresh air into my body.

The Historical City

In Japan, there are 47 prefectures and thousands of cities. Of course, I do not still know all of Japanese cities. In those cities, I would like to visit  Hiroshima prefecture. There is very famous prefecture among people who come from foreign countries, but I have never been there. Therefore, I do not know about Hiroshima in detail. This time, I have an opportunity that I can research about Hiroshima, so I researched three things. First one is the history of Hiroshima. Next is the local foods of Hiroshima and last one is sightseeing spots of Hiroshima. I will tell you all of them.

Hokkaido is located in the northernmost of Japan, and the island was surrounded by the Pacific Ocean, the Sea of Japan and the Sea of Okhotsk. Population of Hokkaido is about 5,600,000. I will introduce about a configuration and industry, sightseeing spot and popular winter sport in Hokkaido with my reasons that I would like to go there.

Attractive Island
