Japan is known as an island country. There are 4 main islands called Kyushu, Honshu, Shikoku (see previous blog about Kochi in Shikoku) and Hokkaido. Japan is long from north to south. And this time, Muse Ricette takes you to the Amami Islands that is called as "the Galapagos in the East" this time.
Are you ready to fly with us? Let's take off!
It takes just one hour and a half flight from Haneda, Tokyo to this beautiful islands. Flight path is the route on the Pacific ocean. You can't stop looking the beautiful scenery once taking off. It's literally you keep putting your forehead to the window during travel. If you seat at the west side, you will see the mount Fuji from the sky. I do recommend you to seat the east side. Islands lying from the sough of Tokyo can be seen. Oshima, Niijima, Takeshima and a part of Izu seven islands in the pacific ocean. If the weather is clear, you will see the look of islands, state of waves and beautiful terrain of Japan created by volcano.
After a short time of taking off airplane, blue color of ocean is getting deeper and deeper. Water is too clear to see coral reef even from the above sky! It's the sign that Amami is almost getting closer and closer. I can't wait to run to the beach!
My face feels tropical hot wind and I smell a little bit salty in the breeze when I landed to the island airport.. Let's escape from bunch of things in the city for a while and just sit back and relax only to feel the nature and adventure in the blue islands.
Let's grab the key of rental car at the airport! No signals, no traffic. Just blue sky and ocean.
It is just amazing everything here. Good by Tokyo for a while.
