Chichibu is nestled in the mountains in the westernmost part of Saitama Prefecture. Chichibu is where cement manufacturing developed and had a prosperous silk fabric industry. In the early 20th century, many silk shops lined Kuromon and Kaitsugisho streets and some still remain. Recently, Chichibu has claimed fame as the setting of anime film “We Still Don’t Know the Name of the Flower We Saw That Day,” and many anime lovers visit this “sacred place.” In Hitsujiyama Park, more than 400,000 pink moss flowers bloom from mid April to early May. From Seibu Chichibu Station, stroll down Banba Street with its many retro-styled cafes, tobacco stores, and meat stores and you will come to Chichibu Shrine. It was built more than 2,000 years ago. Tokugawa Ieyasu, the founder of the Tokugawa Shogunate, donated the current buildings in 1592. Elaborate carvings, such as the guardian “Tsunagi no Ryu” (chained dragon) and “Hokushin no Fukuro” (North Star owl) endowing success in academics are a must-see. Chichibu Yomatsuri (night festival) takes place every December. Gorgeous floats are dynamically dashed up a steep slope for the highlight of the festival.

Nishi Awa

Step back in time 1,000 years and discover the hidden charms of Japan. There are a number of places and things all over Japan that are generally unknown to tourists but are fascinating. Among them, Shikoku in western Japan is with the place to see examples of the original scenery of Japan. While leisurely walking around, fond memories will come to mind. 越過千年時空,與深藏的日本魅力相逢之旅。 在日本各地還有許多雖不太出名,卻深藏不露的好地方及好東西,而位於西日本的四國正屬於這種地區。 漫步在日本的原有風貌中,說不定還能喚起內心深處已被遺忘的回憶呢。

Hashikura-dera Temple 箸藏寺

Oboke Gorge

Sake 日本酒


This temple is for the Omuro school of the Shingon sect of Buddhism. The vast temple grounds, founded by Kukai (Kobo Daishi) in 828, are located from the middle to the top of Mt. Hashikura (600 meters above sea level) and are home to six important cultural properties. Honden (main hall), among others, is highly regarded for its magnificent construction and elaborate carvings. 早在828年由空海(弘法大師)所創設,是一座從標高約600公 尺的箸藏山的半山腰到山頂附近的占地遼闊的寺廟,擁有6棟 貴為重要文化財的建築物。本殿等的建築物採用許多精緻細 膩的雕刻裝飾,也是評價甚高的精美建築。

The Yoshino River cuts into the mountain and has created the deep valleys of Oboke and Koboke. The place was considered a dangerous place to traverse but the steep cliffs offer picturesque scenery. Visitors can see weirdly shaped natural rock “sculptures” and beautiful views in all seasons from a boat. Rafting is also available. Colorful carp streamers “swim” in the sky from late March to late May every year.

Miyoshi City in the center of Shikoku is a good place for making sake in the cold weather. Miyoshigiku, a brewery held by the Mamiya samurai family, until the end of the Edo period (16031867), began production in the late 19th century. Sake produced by the current and fifth owner, Ryoichiro Mamiya, is distinctive. Reservations are necessary for brewery tours.

大步危、小步危是受到吉野川溪水沖刷侵蝕而形成高聳深峻的 溪谷。自古以來是出名的交通難關,至今仍保留著斷崖峭壁的 峽谷之美。搭船順流而下欣賞沿路上溪谷中有如雕刻藝術般 的岩石之美及四季變化多端的美景是一種至高無上的享受,還 可體驗泛舟樂趣。 每年從3月下旬到5月底,許多五顏六色的鯉魚旗高掛飛揚。

三好市位於四國的幾乎是中央部位,其寒冷的氣 候是最適合造酒的地方。三芳菊是由直到江戶時 代為止都是武士家族的馬宮家,在19世紀後半所 開始的造酒工場。由第5代主人-馬宮亮一郎先生 親自釀造的日本酒充滿了特色。事先預約就能參 觀工場。

Iya has been a hidden mysterious place for a long time. Surrounded by the steep Iya Valley, the only way to enter the region in the past was a mountain route of connecting passes at more than 1,000 meters above sea level. Secluded from the outside, unique customs and literary traditions developed and still remain. Even though this was a remote mountainous area, people have inhabited it. There is a legend that warriors of the Heike (Taira) clan defeated by the Genji (Minamoto) clan in the Battle of Yashima off Shikoku in 1185 fled there and settled in this region. An old house high up in the Ochiai village was renovated and opened in April 2012, as the Fusho (Floating Life) House with comfortable, modern accommodations. It was designed by Alex Kerr, an American writer with expertise in East Asian Art and Literature who has restored traditional town houses in Kyoto. The scenery is wonderful year-round with fresh green foliage in the spring, mountains in the haze of rainy season, the dark green leaves of summer, autumn leaves, and snow-covered mountains in winter.

祖谷又被稱之為秘境。因為被 叫做祖谷溪的深峻溪谷所掩蔽, 要通過標高1000公尺以上的山 巔才能跟外部往來,交通困難不 便之故,而成為了保存著獨自的 生活習慣、口承文藝等的地域。 不過,像這樣與世隔絕的山地也 是有人居住於此的。傳說中這裡 的居民是當初因屋島合戰(1185 年)時,戰敗的平家一族逃難至 此而定居下來的後裔。 修復了位於落合部落的最上端 的稻草屋頂古民宅。將室內裝潢 成摩登雅緻,搖身一變成為舒適 的住宿設施「浮生」於2012年4 月開幕,由擁有重整京都的町家 建築的實績的東洋文化研究家 Alex Kerr先生所監製。春 天的新綠、梅雨季 節水煙瀰漫的 景色、夏天的 深 綠、秋 天 的 紅 葉、冬 季的雪景。

Iya 祖谷 Dizzyingly sheer cliffs line the steep gorge. A statue of a boy urinating stands at the edge of 200-meter precipice, noted as the most dangerous spot in the Iya Valley. Hotel Iya Onsen, famous for water that is good for skin, is nearby. A cable car runs to the bottom of the 170-meter gorge, where you can soak in an open-air bath jutting over the Iya River. Kazura Bridge is a suspension bridge made of arguta (perennial kiwi) vines and could be cut down easily when villagers had to flee from pursuers. It is 45 meters long, 1.5 meters wide and 14 meters above the river. It swings from the steps of pedestrians who can see the rapids below between floor boards. Enjoy the thrilling crossing.

在德島縣的西部,位於四國第一大 河-吉野川中流域的商業城市。在江 戶時代曾以阿波藍的集散地而繁榮 一時,因此有許多藍染起家的富商 們所擁有的大規模商家及倉庫等櫛 比鱗次。 UDATSU(漢字寫成「卯建」,是江 戶時代的「防火牆」)是從2樓的牆 壁突出的隔牆,上面還有瓦片屋頂。 當初的功用是為了萬一失火時可遏 止由隔壁房屋所延燒的火勢而蓋的 防火牆,不過之後演變成為富裕的 象徵,商人們為了一別苗頭而把它蓋 的很氣派華麗來炫耀自己的財富。

祖谷桂藤(KAZURA)橋是 主要以藤蔓所編製而成的吊 橋,據說為了是逃避追殺時可 斬斷追兵去路而用的。全長 45公尺、寬1.5公尺、離水面高 度14公尺。每走一步就會搖 晃,從腳下木板間可見底下水 面,走起來十分驚險刺激。

This commercial town in western Tokushima Prefecture faces midstream of the Yoshino River, the longest river in Shikoku. It once prospered as one of the biggest trading centers of Awa-ai (indigo dye), a specialty of this area, and many of the large houses and storehouses of the wealthy merchants lined the streets. Many houses in the town have udatsu, wing walls from the second floor, and tiled roofs. Udatsu were originally built to prevent fire from spreading between neighboring houses but became a symbol of wealth and merchants competed in building splendid udatsu.

兩岸深邃溪谷延綿的祖谷溪。到 谷底高度有200公尺之高,也是 溪谷中最為險峻的絕崖峭壁之 處站立著一尊尿尿小童的銅像。 附近有以美肌溫泉聞名的祖谷 溫泉飯店。搭登山纜車下到170 公尺之下的谷底的話,還有座延 展出祖谷川的露天溫泉。

Climbing Mt. Fuji in Summer The season for climbing Mt. Fuji opens on July 1 with a ceremony and ends in late August. It is best for most people to climb during this period when the mountain lodges and first-aid centers are in business, although experienced mountain climbers sometimes climb in other seasons. The routes are well maintained and no special climbing techniques are necessary. More than 200,000 people of all ages climb the mountain every year. The average temperature, however, at the summit is around 5 degrees C even in summer and there may be strong winds and heavy rain. There is also the risk of lightning and altitude sickness. Because Mt. Fuji is more than 3,000 meters high, you should be well prepared the equipment and serious about the climb.

Access Take the JR Chuo Line from Shinjuku and change to the Fujikyu Railway train at Otsuki. Railfans will enjoy riding on the “Azusa” and “Kaiji” limited express trains on the JR Chuo Line, and the “Fuji-tozan densha” and “Fujisan tokkyu” on the Fujikyuko Line. The “Kawaguchiko-go” rapid train runs directly from Shinjuku to Kawaguchiko on holidays. Get off at Fujisan Station or Kawaguchiko Station, and take a bus to the trail entrances.

Climbing Routes There are four main climbing routes. The “Yoshida Route” is in Yamanashi Prefecture (the Kawaguchiko side) with two trail entrances. Starting at the 5th Station (gogome) of the Fuji Subaru Line Road, also called the Kawaguchiko entrance, is the most popular. The guidelines say it requires 6 hours 50 minutes to go up and 3 hours 20 minutes to come down. There are many lodges along the way so you will feel safe. Not only from the summit but also from the 7th or 8th stations, you can see the sunrise. Hike up among the lava rocks on the sand gravel trail. The lower entrance is 1st Station (ichigome) and takes an estimated time of 9 hours up and 4 hours 40 minutes down. This trail has retained an old-time atmosphere and recently has been attracting Mt. Fuji lovers as the best way to enjoy the Great Nature of the revered mountain. There are sightseeing spots along the trail, such as the Kitaguchi Hongu Fuji Sengen Shrine at the foot. Kongozue, a pilgrim's walking stick sold at the entrances for about 1,000 yen, can be branded by each lodge you pass for around 200 yen. It is a good souvenir.

Adjacent Places to See and Local Food Hiking and cycling are great ways to see the area. Oishi Park in Fuji-Kawaguchiko Town offers a fine view of Mt. Fuji looming above Lake Kawaguchi, and in particular, from mid-June to mid-July the lavender flowers are at their best. Saiko Iyashi-no-sato Nemba has charming thatched-roof houses and a splendid view of Mt. Fuji. The Itchiku Kubota Art Museum was awarded three stars in the Michelin Green Guide Japon 2009. The Fuji Visitor Center and Saiko Komori Ana (Bat Cave), one of the largest lava caves in this area with hordes of bats, are both interesting. And Oshino Hakkai is famous for its excellent water. Fujikyu Highland Theme Park is home to many attractions including TAKABISHA and FUJIYAMA. A new labyrinth attraction will open in late June, 2012. Hungry? Try the hoto, a dish of noodles, pumpkin, and other vegetables in miso soup. Yoshida udon noodles are firm and thick and served with a cabbage topping. From June to October, you can have the fun of picking your own strawberries, blueberries and cherries.

夏季富士登山遊 富士登山的季節是從 7 月 1 日「開山日」到 8 月底為止。 如果是登山高手的話,可以在除此以外的時期從事登山 活動,不過初學者的話還是選擇在山中小屋及救護站開 放的這個時期攀登富士山會比較好。富士山每年約有超 過 20 萬人來此從事登山活動。登山道路也很完善,不需 要特殊登山技巧。不過就算是盛夏,山頂上的溫度平均 只有攝氏 5 度左右。很容易受到風雨的影響,也常打雷, 還有罹患高山症的擔憂。富士山畢竟是座超越 3000 公尺 的高山,登山前最好還是有萬全的登山裝備及熟讀須知。

前往富士山麓 從新宿站搭乘中央線前往大月站。在大月站改搭富士急 行線。如果您是熱愛鐵路人士的話,可以 搭乘中央線特急「AZUSA」 「KAIJI」 、富 士急行線「富士登山電車」 「FUJISAN 特 急」等也別有樂趣。每逢假日則有從新宿 直通河口湖的「假日快速河口湖號」列車 運行。在富士山站或河口湖站下車,再改 搭巴士前往登山口。

登山路線 富士山主要的登山道路有四條, 從山梨縣端(河口湖端) 可 利 用 吉 田 路 線 攀 登 上 山。吉 田 路 線 的 話,從 富 士 SUBARU LINE 五合目(河口湖口)攀登富士山是最普遍 的方式(參考時間:上山 6 小時 50 分,下山 3 小時 20 分) ,途中有好幾間山中小屋所以遊客可以放心。不只 是從山頂, 從富士山七∼八合目就能欣賞得到御來光(日 出)美景。就沿著熔岩石塊及砂礫的道路一路攀登而上 即可。山頂上也有 4 間山中小屋。從吉田口一合目開始 攀登的吉田路線(參考時間:上山 9 小時,下山 4 小時 40 分)還保留著濃厚的昔日氣氛。近年來以能充分享 受富士山大自然美景的登山路線而小有人氣。沿路可順 道遊覽位於山麓的北口本宮富士淺間神社等登山道路沿 路上的著名景點也別有一番樂趣。在登山口所販賣的金 剛杖(約 1000 圓日幣左右)可在登山途中的各個山中 小屋蓋上烙印(一個約 200 圓日幣左右) ,可以帶回家 當紀念。

周邊的景點及美食 不管是登山健行或騎單車遨遊都是種舒適的享受。從富 士河口湖町的大石公園可以隔著河口湖遠眺富士山美 景,特別是薰衣草盛開的 6 月中旬到 7 月中旬這段期間 景色優美值得一遊。從林立著稻草屋頂民宅的西湖癒里 根場眺望的富士山也堪稱美景。還可順道參觀榮獲米其 林旅遊指南 3 星級評價的久保田一竹美術館及富士訪客 中心。西湖蝙蝠洞是富士山麓號稱最大級的熔岩洞穴, 有許多蝙蝠棲息於此。忍野八海是出名的名水之地。富 士 急 樂 園 擁 有「高 飛 車」及「過 山 車 之 王 FUJIYAMA」等許多遊樂設施,今年 7 月下旬新遊樂 設施 - 新戰慄迷宮也將正式啟用。美食方面,像是用 味噌湯底加上麵條及南瓜等蔬菜所烹煮而成的名為 「餺 飥(HOUTOU) 」的烏龍麵,以及吃起來嚼勁十足的粗 麵條搭配上高麗菜為其特徵的吉田烏龍麵等是這裡的名 產美食。草莓、小藍莓、櫻桃等的摘採水果也很有趣。

Cruise in Tokyo 從水上享受遊覽東京樂趣

Tokyo, though it is a metropolis, is blessed with the ocean, rivers, canals, and many places where you can enjoy the waterfront. Here are several ways to enjoy Tokyo from the water. 東京既是個大都會,也飽受河川、運河及海洋等水際之惠。在此要為大家介紹從水上享受遊覽東京的樂趣。

Water Bus

Old-fashioned Houseboat (Yakatabune)

Romantic Cruise in Tokyo Bay

A boats start from Asakusa, an old district near TOKYO SKYTREE® and goes down the Sumida River. You will find the famous Tsukiji fish market on the right-hand side 30 minutes after the start, then the boat turns right and arrives at Hamarikyu Gardens. This is a beautiful Japanese garden with tearooms and seasonal flowers. Another boat bound for Odaiba passes under the Rainbow Bridge and heads for Odaiba Kaihin Park. Among a number of design boats plying these waterways, the "Himiko" fleet is eye-catching. The boat designed by the famous cartoonist Leiji Matsumoto is a sleek futuristic design and looks like a spacecraft. (http://www.

Some of you saw scores of boats with a large number of lanterns floating on the sea from the plane to Haneda Airport. They are houseboats (yakatabune) with low roofs and tatami-mat flooring. They were popular in the Edo period and still offer great night views of modern Tokyo. You have an opportunity to try traditional Japanese foods including sushi and tempura on the boat. Viewing cherry blossoms in spring, fireworks in summer, and moon viewing in autumn from the boat is especially recommended. Most boats operate for private, chartered use but some companies operate shareride boats. The cost is about 10,500 JPY (100 JPY ≈ 1.25 USD) per person. Harumiya (

A variety of cruise tours offer French and Italian dining while cruising Tokyo Bay. You will see fantastic views of illuminated high-rises and other structures on the land from the boat and, in particular, two bridges are a must-see. The Tokyo Gate Bridge just opened in February 2012 appears to be two dinosaurs facing off to many viewers. The Rainbow Bridge, a 798-meter suspension bridge connecting Shibaura and Odaiba, is illuminated after sunset and creates a breathtaking view. TOKYO SKYTREE® also can be seen. The view from the boat is surprisingly different than when seen from land. Enjoy the dramatic view. Vingt et un Symphony english/

水上巴士 以因東京晴空塔而引起了熱門話題的下町-淺草為起 點,搭水上巴士順著隅田川而下。大約30分鐘在右手 邊就可以看到出名的築地市場。往右邊轉的船則會抵 達濱離宮,可欣賞茶室及應節花卉盛開景色優美的日 本庭園。而要到台場的船,會穿過彩虹大橋下,前往台 場海濱公園。各式各樣設計的船隻來往穿梭之中,由 著名的漫畫家松本零士先生所設計的「HIMIKO」的 流線造型有如太空船似的,非常有特色。

屋形船 應該有不少人曾經從飛往羽田機場的飛機上看過無數的 浮現在海上的燈籠所發出的光芒,其實那些光芒是來自 屋形船。屋形船是種有著低矮屋頂,內部鋪有塌塌米席 位,從江戶時代起就非常受大眾喜愛的客船。一邊品嚐壽 司及天婦羅等傳統日本料理,一邊從海上欣賞現代化的 東京風光。春天的櫻花、夏天的煙 火、秋天的賞月等,從海上眺望美 景更別有一番風味。多半是以團體 包租的方式,不過也可以共乘,每 人花費約10,500圓日幣就能享受 屋形船遊覽樂趣。 晴海屋

羅曼蒂克遊輪 也可搭乘遊覽船一邊享受著美味可口的法國料理或義 大利菜,一邊觀賞來自東京灣的繽紛閃爍的夜景之美。 觀賞景點之一就是欣賞跨越東京灣的橋樑之美。2012 年2月開通的東京京門大橋,彷彿是兩頭恐龍面對面似 的景觀為其特徵。連接著芝浦與台場的彩虹大橋是座 798公尺之長的吊橋,一到了夜晚會點綴上萬丈光芒。 還可遠眺晴空塔之美。享受一下從海上欣賞東京美景, 體驗截然不同於從陸地上遊覽的樂趣。 VINGT ET UN SYMPHONY

att. Hot Springs

wara Onsen in northern Fukui Prefecture is over 120 years old and in a town famous for agriculture and sightseeing with hills to the north and paddy fields to the south. In 1883, a farmer was digging a well in a paddy field, and discovered hot water. It has since become a big hot spring resort with 27 hotels that attract celebrities and cultural figures. There are as many as 46 sources and each hotel has unique water with different components. The temperature of the water ranges from 33.5 to 77.5 degrees Celsius. It is good for rheumatism, chronic dermatitis, and other maladies. Saintpia Awara is a day spa built in 1994 to commemorate the 110th anniversary of opening of the Awara hot springs. Two unique bathing facilities, Ten-no-Yu and Chi-no-Yu, alternate weekly for men or for women. Onsen-tamago, or partially hard-boiled eggs, can be cooked in the water on the 1st floor. “Awara Onsen Yumeguritegata” is a special pass that allows spa access (three times) to any hotel in Awara Onsen and Saintpia Awara to partake of the different waters in a casual manner.

3 tbsp sugar 2 tbsp miso 1 tsp soy sauce 1/4 tsp juice from fresh ginger Shredded egg crepes 2 eggs Salt to taste Salad oil Other suggested toppings 4 shiitake mushrooms, Cucumber, Lettuce, Tomatoes

Cooking directions: Somen

To make the broth, bring to a boil the mirin and soy sauce in a pan. Add the dashi stock and bring to boil again. Remove from heat and let cool. Prepare condiments and toppings, such as negi, myoga, shiso and grated ginger. Add the noodles, separating while adding, to a large pot of boiling water. Cook the noodles according to the instructions on the package, usually 1 to 3 minutes. Drain immediately in a colander, wash with cold running water and toss by hand. Arrange on a serving plate.

att. Recipe

Immediately drain the boiled noodles in order to stop the cooking process.

Serve with condiments, toppings and dipping sauce. When you cook miso and meat, continue to stir while cooking.

Instructor: Kazuko Karasawa I learned cooking from my parents, who ran a Japanese restaurant, and my grandmother, who lived to be 100 years old. As a housewife, I've been cooking for 18 years. I like cooking everyday, taking care of my family’s health.

During the hot summer, people tend to have less of an appetite. Somen is light and easy to eat so it is a popular dish in summer. For more nutrition, it is sometimes served with tempura. Variations of somen with vegetables or with miso and meat are also available. Slightly thicker noodles, hiyamugi, are prepared the same way but have a different texture.

Miso meat sauce is very delicious. It goes surprisingly well with somen and the preparation is not difficult.

Student: Laetitia Ogawa I was born in France and grew up there. I married a Japanese man. Because Japanese food is good for the health and my son and husband both like it very much, I want to master Japanese recipes.

Bus 巴士 Long-distance buses in Japan are run by numerous companies including JR. Buses are generally more economic than traveling by plane or train but do take longer and can be affected by traffic jams at busy times of the day or night. Local buses run all over Japan as well as in the major cities and sometimes English instructions or stop announcements are used but this is not the case everywhere. We would recommend you ask drivers to remind you of where you must disembark prior to setting off. 包含JR,有許多公司提供長距離巴士的運行,一般來說比藉由 飛機和鐵路的旅行較具經濟性,但是所花的時間比較長,也 較容易受交通阻塞的影響。 主要的都市、城鎮可利用公車線路,最近雖然英語的表示和廣
