If you saw the last post (Karatsu day trip) you’ll know that I recently visited Karatsu… on a day trip. It was a great trip, and one I’d recommended anyone make, especially during Golden week. There’s wisteria, azaleas, comfortable weather & the very cool Karatsu Kunchi festival. And, at any time of the year you can enjoy Karatsu castle, the Karatsu burger (actually, pretty much a regular burger) and Niji-no-matsubara, a wicked pine forest.
Not much else to say other than press play.
The following video can also be found on Youtube: Karatsu castle.

Happy Happy Joy Joy! Spring, it seems, is just around the corner. Though it must be said that I’m not entirely convinced. My extremities are still mostly numb. I did brave the cold on Sunday, the 6th of February when I went for a day trip down Kumamoto way. I was passing through a place called Uto when I came across these plum blossoms. Purdy, ain’t they?
