Hello everyone and Happy New Year!
Just a quick post to say thank you to my followers. Last year was the best to date with the most number of people who visited my blog and read my stories.
I have many more exciting places to visit and explore on my list this year. Over the winter holidays I had 2 short trips. One to the mainland (Honshu), Shimonoseki – famous for the small castle town of Chofu which played an important role along with Satsuma to oust the Tokugawa at the end of the Edo Period.
The second place I visited was Saga castle ruins. Even though Saga is neighbouring my hometown of Fukuoka this was the first time for me to visit the castle ruins. All I can say is “what a great site”. Hizen han as Saga was known played many important roles at the end of the Edo period and Nabeshima Naomasa, the last Lord of Hizen was such a fabulous leader. Anyway stay tuned for a future blog post.
Thankyou again and I hope 2020 is a great year for everyone.
