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

You may explore the other night bazaars & underground markets nearby too 😃

However, do get ready to bargain/ negotiate 🗣👥👤 for at least 50% lower ⬇️ from the price being offered by the local Thai vendors ya 🇹🇭👭👬👫

Another dish that she loves 💗 from Johor Riau is the seafood otak-otak (another signature Johor dish) served here👆🏻👍🏻

1️⃣st photo 📸 captured before another eco walk🚶🏻‍♀️🚶🏻‍♂️here

Hmm…Why Piai❓⁉️

It’s named after a local fern 🌿 plant aka Paku Piai 🌿 in Malaysia’s 🇲🇾national language. This plant is capable of living in brackish water conditions i.e. scattered in this park🙂

Tanjung Piai 🌿 is the southern most point of Peninsular Malaysia 🇲🇾 & the southern most tip of Mainland Asia ğŸŒŽtoo with the borders of shorelines of Malaysia 🇲🇾 , Indonesia 🇮🇩 & Singapore 🇸🇬

Lots of tourists 👫👭👬 travelling to here, just to capture a photo 📸 with this globe 🌐 shaped monument & plaque which marked the southernmost point😍

Photo 28-01-2018, 2 29 07 PM.jpg

Guess what❓⁉️

Tanjung Piai 🌿 as a coastal mangrove also being granted in Jan 2003 with the statusğŸŽ–of an internationally important Ramsar Convention site👏🏻

It has high socio-economic value for fisheries 🐟🐟 especially mudskippers aka ikan belacak in Malaysia’s 🇲🇾national language😀

Photo 28-01-2018, 11 50 06 AM.jpg

The national park officers 👩🏻‍💼👨🏻‍💼shared about the breeding story of mudskippers🐟. Apparently the male 🚹🐟 mudskippers need to build a mud house 🏠 (refer photo 📸 below) to attract the female 🚺🐟mudskippers. Ha…Ha…Interesting facts learnt😅😂🤣
