Wisteria is convenient as a ceiling material of rest space like at a public park. It is okay, even in the strong sunlight. It does not only bloom a beautiful flower, but also, in the summer, its overlapping leaves provide people a cool sunshade. In winter, leaves are falling, and the sunshine through to the bench seat. Sometimes, Carpenter bee（Xylocopa appendiculata） are coming. They are a big bee, but no need to scare. They are a family of a honeybee. They just come to gather flower nectar of wisteria.

at Oobana point (-18m), Owase, Mie, Japan
Cherry blossoms (Sakura) are the symbol of spring in Japan- In Japan, April is the month starting a new life. From the kindergarten or primary school to university are starting in April. Business life also.
The end of March to early April, Cherry blossoms are blooming everywhere in Japan. Parks in cities, Roadsides, mountains … From the flowers begin blooming to the flowers disperse, about one week, festivals to see cherry blossoms are held in various parts of Japan. A spring festival where you can sing, dance, drink and eat, and enjoy the beauty of Sakura.
This year was no ordinary spring scenery. No festival was held this year to avoiding the danger of COVID-19. However, the flowers are beautiful even this sad situation.
The scenery from under the sea
The sunny day of the scenery from under the sea is especially great. The bright sun ball can be seen on the surface at distance. Colorful soft corals are emphasized in the contrast of the deep blue water and white sunbeam. What a wonderful space it is! at Owase, Mie, Japan
the bay entrance of Shirasama-beach point
I like the shallows. You can observe creatures for a long time in the warm sunshine. This is the bay entrance of Shirasama-beach point. It is a place where you can enjoy rocky, sandy, silt and various environments.
“The edge of the sea is a strange and beautiful place.” -Rachel Carson
“There is something infinitely healing in the repeated refrains of nature-the assurance that dawn comes after night, and spring after winter.”

Stay safe, every buddy.
in the dim sea bed
Whip coral garden at Nagase point, Owase, Mie, Japan.
This is an inner bay point, but the tide is often fast. So, we can enjoy many kinds of soft coral. I like the whip coral garden. Whip coral is an invertebrate with long, whip-like branches covered in tiny polyps. are living on a big rock. The scenery a lot of the whip coral standing in the dim sea bed is very mysterious.
