One day when I was driving home, I stumbled upon a spacious park in my neighborhood. I wondered about it because I'd never heard of it. Later, I leaned that it was Geba Central Park, which is adjacent to Fukui City Museum.
The fact that there had been a city museum and a big park just under my nose without my knowledge rattled me...it is a humiliation to an alleged travel writer, isn't it? Therefore, as soon as I learned that I checked it out!
There, a spacious, green, beautiful park welcomed me with open arms and no charge. As usual, almost nobody was there on a sunny weekday and I enjoyed the space and fresh air all to myself. Hallelujah!

I was born in and grew up in Tokushima prefecture, and have lived in many places since then: Nishinomiya, Kyoto, Nara, Mie, Tokyo, Kanagawa, Saitama, Chiba, Fukuoka and Fukui. I am currently living in Yokohama City. All the places I lived, all the places I visited, I have loved dearly. The historical places where people lived, loved, suffered, and fought - places where I can still hear their heartbeats - mesmerize me. I'd like to retrace the footsteps of the people who lived in Japan a long long time ago, and introduce to you what they left behind on this soil.
