Miyanoshita Cosmos Park in Fukui City is famous for its one hundred million cosmos that burst into bloom from late September to mid October each year. Endless patches of cosmos flowers sprawling over 17.5 hectares of land (10 times as large as Tokyo Dome!) with the beautiful Hakusan mountain range in the background are a sight to behold. This cosmos paradise however, is only known to local people, so visitors can fully enjoy the space and the flowers to themselves. On the day I visited it rained unfortunately, but cosmos under the rain was also beautiful and pleased my eyes. Entrance is free and free parking space is provided for visitors as well.

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.
