Tsuruga Castle 鶴ヶ城 🏯 was known for its strong defense, enduring for an entire month under the enemy’s attack during the 1868 war. It’s said to be the only castle in Japan that still has the same red-tiled roof from the time before it was demolished. At top floor, it offers a view of Mt. Bandai & Iimori Hill, also the townscape of Aizu. Ms Abe has recommended this castle as must visit during spring & autumn season

SiennyLovesDrawing 👩🏻 also read about this unique Buddhist temple built in 1796 named Sazaedo Temple 螺旋堂 ⛩️ (Aizu Sazae-do, officially named Entsusansou-do). It’s still standing strong now after about 220 years, this 3-story temple solely made of wood, looks like a spiral staircase shaped with its ingenious double-helix slope (It allows visitors to ascend & descend the temple structure without meeting those moving in the opposite direction) that makes it in National Important Cultural Property listing in 1995 & also was showcased in Michelin Green Guide in 2018. Visitors will observe a discontinued practice by local Japanese from the plastered family placards of visitors who completed pilgrimages to the temple & gave donations on the roof & walls of this temple. She would definitely visiting it when she is at Aizu-Wakamatsu City, Fukushima. More info via 🌐 http://sazaedo.jp/

Bandai-Azuma Skyline (Nakadori) is 1 of selected Japan’s top 100 roads, a scenic driving 🚗 route stretches 28.7km to meandering through the Azuma mountain range, between Takayu Onsen & Tsuchiyu Toge Pass.

Things To Do @ Iwate Prefecture

SiennyLovesDrawing has recently read online about the ONLY lone surviving tree 🌳 of the Takata Pine Forest from the Great East Japan Earthquake & Tsunami in 2011 in Rikuzentakata, Iwate Prefecture 🇯🇵🗾

This 250-year-old “miracle” pine is the only 1 among 70K trees left standing along the town’s coastline after the disaster. Actually it’s initially survived, but was removed last Sept after its roots died from exposure to saltwater

Now a reconstruction of it stands at its place. Some young pine trees are growing again along the city’s coastline 🗾 & thanks to the great 👍🏻 restore efforts

.

Mr Isrami has highly recommended Geibikei & must be one in the top list‼️ Geibikei is a gorge located in Ichinoseki area of Iwate. It’s with beautiful scenery of red, orange and yellow color of autumn leaves 🍁🍂🍁 on the cliff & both sides of the river during autumn with a boat 🛶 ride which steered by local Japanese. Easy 🚃 access by taking train to JR Geibikei station & walk for about 5 mins. More info via 🌐 http://www.geibikei.co.jp/en/index.html

There is a mountain which stands at an altitude of 1,614m & straddles the Akita & Iwate prefectures, it has a plateau around it which has been designated as Towada Hachimantai National Park with seasonal flowers from spring to autumn & snowing in winter. Not to miss the Kagaminuma on the Hachimantai mountaintop promenade aka Dragon Eye when the snow melts from mid-May to mid-June. About 2 hours by bus from JR Morioka Station to Hachimantai & Kagaminuma

Hachimantai Aspite Line Snow Corridor is a 27km mountain sightseeing road that runs through Towada-Hachimantai National Park straddling Iwate & Akita. 1 of the best roads in Japan for a scenic drive with impressively high walls of snow on both sides. The snow walls which can reach a height of 6m. Note: It may be closed during winter due to heavy snow as shown via https://www.facebook.com/Visit.My.Japan/posts/1823397997811059

Ms Doris also recommends Jodogahama Beach aka “Pure Land Beach” which located within Sanriku Geopark in Iwate Prefecture. The clear blue water, white rocks & green pines actually listed in Japan’s 100 Best Beaches of Japan
The Koiwai Farm 小岩井農場 as recommended by Mr Isrami to visit for its Mt Iwate backdrop & a agrotourism destination in Iwate, Tohoku.

9 March 2022 – Malaysia Opens Its National Borders 1 Apr 2022 To Re -Empower The International Tourism Sector

The Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC) welcomes the recent announcement made by the YAB Prime Minister regarding the opening of the country’s borders starting 1 Apr 2022, in line with the country’s situation which will enter the ‘Transition to Endemic’ Phase on the same date

This announcement is good news for tourism industry players as it can give them relief and light in regenerating the economy through the international tourism sector after the world was hit by the COVID-19 pandemic 2 years ago, closing the country’s border gates to foreign tourists

The announcement made involves the following:

  • Malaysians with valid travel documents can now enter and leave the country as usual and are allowed to go to any country that also opens its border gates to foreign travelers
  • Foreign nationals with valid travel documents can also move in and out of Malaysia without having to apply for MyTravelPass which will be abolished. Instead, just download and activate the MySejahtera application and complete the Pre-Departure Form through the Traveler function in MySejahtera
  • Individuals who have received a complete vaccination, are not required to undergo any quarantine period and only need to undergo the COVID-19 RT-PCR detection test two days before departure as well as the RTK-Ag (professional) test within 24 hours of arrival. However, for other vaccination status such as not receiving vaccine for medical reasons and not receiving any vaccination, the procedure will be detailed by the Minister of Health; as well as
  • For countries that are still closing their borders, the people can still take advantage of the Vaccinated Travel Lane (VTL) method that has been agreed by the Malaysian Government with the countries involved

YB Dato ‘Sri Hajah Nancy Shukri, Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture said, the decision to open the country’s borders to foreign tourists is able to boost the country’s economic recovery after COVID-19, especially involving the entire chain of tourism, arts and culture industry players in the country. . MOTAC remains optimistic that the industry will rise again and be able to make Malaysia popular again among international tourists

It is advisable for all tourism and cultural industry players to make initial preparations in receiving tourists from outside. Industry players are urged to continue to intensify promotion and be more creative in marketing Malaysian tourism products and locations in the eyes of the world

MOTAC will also always provide cooperation and support to all efforts made by all government agencies involved in the successful reopening of the Malaysia’s borders starting 1 April 2022
