In June when Marleen and Loek were here with us, we took Esther the Car for a spin into the Heart of Kyushu. There is a great National Park near Mt Kuju. The weather was too wet to hike up that mountain, so we just went for walkies at "base camp".
We walked a great board-walk trail to observe all the local plants and indeed the many flowers and huge mushrooms!
Next morning we finally could see the top ((@one side) of Mt Kuju...See the active volcano?
And oh yes, the rice is doing well this year with all the rain we had.
Next day on the list was a stroll through Yufuin Town.
Window Shopping...what a contrast!
But also a great place for some food...see "post Above".
