It's been a week since Kumamoto and Oita earthquakes.
It's difficult to know when it's the right time to blog normally again after a disaster but Bene no Fukuoka ! is a cheerful and positive blog. I want to move forward , continue to show you the beauty of my island Kyushu.
I will talk longer about the the consequences of the earthquakes on the local tourism and my fears about this in my monthly daily life article but for now I'll finish the story of my journey to Miyazaki last month.
I left you when we were in Takachiho. Around 3pm, we took the bus bound for Miyazaki city, much further south than our current location.

I didn't take the time yet to answer to everyone but I'll do it progressively. Just know that I'm fine and my friends / boyfriend too.
On the internet, in the newspaper or on TV, we see enough footages of damages that I didn't want to show that too. Instead, I prefer to show you the beauty of Kumamoto city and prefecture. Because Kumamoto is a beautiful region, so rich in history and so fantastic that they will be strong. There is no doubt about that.

Basically I wanted to talk about the second part of my lovely tripin Miyazaki.
But now, while I was writing my article, at 9:26 p.m. local time, a magnitude 7 earthquake hit the island of Kyushu (southwest Japan) where I live and as it was quite a shock I wanted to talk about it.

Last night a storm blown up the last cherry blossoms petals that were on the trees. The sakura season is over. Already. Everything happened so fast. I'd like to be able to see these flowers all year but in an other another hand, its quick bloom makes its charms.
Welcome to a pink and white world.

This could sum up well last month which was still pretty cold but now winter coat is in the closet until the end of the year !
To not change since the beginning of the year, March was a pretty busy month so I 'm struggling to remember everything. Let's try to remember all.
