Wabisuke Shinryo Restaurant is located at the foot of a mountain in Nogata. Lunch set comes with appetizer, entree, and desert with rich seasonal ingredients for 1500 yen. Everything was so delicious and just a right portion to make me full. The restaurant is a magnificent traditional wooden house with modern interiors. The owner told us that there are monkeys, wild boars, and raccoons coming out of woods sometimes.



After lunch was "Fukuchiyama Sanroku Flower Park".  It was such a hot day today. Leaves were turning red and yellow just a little bit. It's unbelievably hot for November! I was excited to see some fall foliage during this trip but so far I'm out of luck. I saw a lot of beautiful greens and flowers in this park instead.



Satsuki Matsubara (matsubara means pine grove) is the beach I'd visited for swimming every single summer in my childhood. The beach is surrounded by pine trees and the water is (was) so clear. I can never forget one abnormally warm summer when there were full of tropical type of colorful fish swimming around in a shallow area of this sea. It was just so unbelievable. I enjoyed snorkeling for hours looking at those colorful fish (so many of them!!) right in front of my face. That was one time only experience. Summer in Japan is so humid and hot that I'm not sure if I can handle it anymore but visiting this special beach of mine to swim is something I want to do again in the future.



The sun was about to set when we came home. It was hot pink in my naked eyes but the camera couldn't capture it. The day ended peacefully with the sunset.
