15.10.2015 : Miyazaki, Kyushu island

the 15 October 2015 in story

Hello !

Here I am in Miyazaki, an eastern coastal city of the island of Kyushu. I have spent the last 15 days with Fred , a French that I had met in Busan in Korea a few days before my departure. We found ourselves in Taketa , where we met Vanessa , a German who lives there for 1 year and a half. She works at the tourist office .  At night she hosted us in a huge house which someone lends her, but it is so big that she plans to move in the comings days. We should be her last guets.

From there , we joined Takachiho walking during 4 days to see the gorges. On the way we met a man who told us that the path was not further maintained and we had to go elsewhere. Fred went to check and it was a jungle indeed ! The man offered us a packet of wheat flour he made ​​himself, about 500g , he wanted to give us one each but we had just bought some and  I already had a 800g in my bag !!!

Then it rained for two days alternately , so we abandoned the ascent of a peak and continued by the road. What's nice here is that the mountain roads are uncrowded . Both nights luckily we found a shelter , we were so happy when we considered the rain !!

We then arrived at Takachiho , we did not see the gorges, it was already late . We went up the hills to see the sunrise and discover a sea of ​​clouds over the city. But in the end, the tent was soaked with moisture and there was no sea of ​​clouds ...

We headed to go to the grooves , in fact it was so small , it takes 20 minutes to walk around , and it is crowded with Japanese tourists , but quite nice though.OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Then we went to Clint , an American couchsurfer whos teaches English in a village nearby. He picked us up . Together we went to a nice view of Mount Aso , right in front of a wine cellar !! Then we went to see the vineyards in height : easy harvests guaranteed!

We stayed two days at Clint's , then as Fred had to leave on the 12th for a meditation course , we choosed to continue hitchhiking to see volcanoes. We were really on small roads but it still worked. It was great actually , it allowed us brief but beautiful meetings with local people who did not speak a word of English ! Little step by little step, we finally got not exactly where we planned to go because our last driver decided to take us to a lake he loved. So we made another journey in volcanoes and we loved it, it was really beautiful.

Then when we came down , we asked young people where they were going and that's how we ended up in Kagoshima . We hung out there for 2 days. It is there that died the last samurai ... From there, we had a wonderful view of Sakarujima , an active volcano that coexists with more than 600 000 inhabitants ... Unique in the world I think !!

Then we took the ferry boat to turn around this volcano, but in the end it does not add much more to turn around it, the sight could have been beautiful on the crater still in activity but it was spoiled by the fog, we did'nt have much luck in this ' island '. We hitch-hiked again to go to Toi-Cape, where I resumed the march to return to Takachiho and so complete a continuous path to walk on the island of Kyushu , probably my last one. I loved this Cape . To start we have been to a village before the Cape, a lady in a car took a detour to take us there. She introduced us to Melody whom she did not personally know but she had heard of her as an American woman working at the corner gas station.

Melody lived here for 27 years, a beautiful love story ... She directed us to a spot to fix our tent. It had rained all day so we slept below a shelter there. In the evening Melody brought us food , how adorable! The next day there was a little competition of a sport similar to the cricket , quite funny . We followed the coast to reach Cape Toi . 

On the way we saw two monkeys and another small animal that approached us very close without seeing us, he bolted when he realized ! Arrived at the Cape, we saw horses classified as "Living heritage" because they are the descendants of horses left behind by the Samurai when they left the scene... I do not know much history, to be checked on the net ...

Well now ! I resumed my walk and Fred went his way towards Kyoto . I followed the coast, beautiful places here and there but a little too busy with others ... I am hosted by a young 19 year-old man who studies here and who is the brother of Anna, a young woman I met in Fukuoka. She speaks French and would love to return to France for a living, after a one year experience there.
