[video] Hydrangea in Sagamihara North Park

My mom loves hydrangea so we wanted to see some on our trip to Japan. The one place in Kamakura is super famous, but mom said that it is crowded with tourist and you're pushed through in a line without really getting a chance to enjoy the beauty of the flowers. So we decided to ditch the famous/crowded place and try this park. Oh my... I almost don't want to write about since I don't want it to be too tourist-y. It's about an hour train ride from Tokyo station to Hashimoto station. From there you can take a bus or taxi to the park. We took the taxi there, but had an extremely hard time flagging down a taxi to go back so we had to catch the bus back to the train station. It was totally worth it though! There were so many different types of hydrangeas with cute names and we could take our time and stroll through the park. 


マミーが紫陽花が好きだから見に行こうって言ってたけど、鎌倉の有名なところは人がいっぱいでゆっくり観賞できなと言われ、相模原北公園に行くことにしました。東京駅はら橋本駅までおよそ1時間かかり、駅からまたバスまたはタクシーでやっとの思いでつきました。行きはタクシーで行ったけど、帰りはさすがにタクシーがつかまらずバスで帰りました。紫陽花の種類がた〜くさんあって、かわいい名前ばかりのものでした。ゆっくりと時間をかけてみれたのでとてもよかったです。

[video] Sake Brewery, Fukiware Falls, Yuba Making, & Cherry Picking

I went on a bus tour to enjoy some yuba and do some cherry picking. The bus tour also came with a stop at a sake brewery and a fall, but I wasn't interested in those stops. I just wanted to eat some yuba and pick some cherries! When we FINALLY got to the yuba place I was in heaven! It was all you can eat yuba! I love yuba. I ate so much yuba I was in my happy place. Then we went to a farm to pick cherries! They told us that the good ones are the bright red ones at the top. I ate at least 50 cherries! It was so fresh and sweet. Too bad I can't do yuba eating or cherry picking in Hawaii. Must return again soon!

はとバスツアーで湯葉作り体験とさくらんぼ狩りに行ってきました。途中で酒造と滝に寄ったけど、興味なし。目的は湯葉とさくらんぼ!やっと湯葉作り体験の時間になった時はもう嬉しくって嬉しくってた〜くさん湯葉を食べました。やっぱり湯葉は美味しいし、楽しい。そして、さくらんぼ狩りの時は上の赤いさくらんぼが美味しいと聞き頑張って上の方のさくらんぼをとって食べました。50個以上は食べたと思います。ハワイには湯葉もさくらんぼ狩りがなくって残念です。また、近々に日本に来ないと。
