Last weekend, I went to spend 3 days in Miyazaki prefecture, in the southeast of Kyushu island. My first and only trip to Miyazaki was in 2011. I had spent two days in the main city and I couldn't do anything because of the heavy rain. I decided to take a revenge and to go this month. My mother is currently in Fukuoka so I also wanted to show her some Kyushu.
Today I take you in the mountains, in the small village of Takachiho.

When living in a foreign country, it is no uncommon to take some local habits and customs. I'm certainly not an exception.
Here are three Japanese habits I have adopted and three who will probably remain strange to me forever.

Following my interview in the Nishi Nippon newspaper  of January 1st, I was contacted by the Nagasaki Prefecture's Industry, Food and Local products promotion Department. They wanted to invite me to discover the regional specialties.

I'm sorry for my long absence but I didn't have internet at home for more than a week and it was hard to write (as well as responding to emails and comments !!!) from iPhone.

Overall, February has been a busy month, punctuated by my Hokkaido trip, a Nagasaki one day travel and all the preparations for moving !
