In August, Kameoka city I live now hosts the Marine Litter Summit.
The purpose of the conference is to investigate the cause of the marine litter problem and discuss on measures towards the issue.
But why marine here? This city is located just next to Kyoto city, not surrounded by any sea.
You may not know this issue can be occured everywhere, even in an inland city like mine.

On Osaka Highway, I found Nakajima parking area was very clean, newly constructed, and comfortable to take a rest. There are food court and rest space with mini-aquarium on the 2nd floor.
What's the most remarkable spot here is the washrooms. It was one of the most beautiful ones in western Japan, which I'd seen so far.
Here I show you is the fully equipped multi-use conpartment.
It's worth taking photos, isn't it?

Let's see how these babies are growing later on.

Japan's sakura flowers had bloomed later this year.
But since it blooms, we have to hurry up to follow beautiful spots.
Last week I was in eastern Japan, where I could get the best sakura view with newly constructed Tokyo Sky Tree in Tokyo on the way back to Kyoto.
Kyoto's sakura was waiting for me to shoot good views.
Here you can see Toji-temple's 5-layer tower and beautifully bloomed sakura trees.
I would like to show more and more in my…Continue

In this season, I like to prepare some Japanese sweets for 3:00 p.m. rather than cakes. Many of them are made of "mochi" -- steamed sticky rice balls with various stuffings. Here you can see in the pic are;
Dango - tri-colored ball sticks. No stuffings. Sakura and green tea flavored.
Sakura mochi - pink mochi with red bean stuffing and wrapped with salted leaf.
These sweets are sakura scented and often taken for tea times as well as cherry blossom view picnic.…Continue
