The Habu museum was informative in a disturbing graphic way. The displays show snakes eating other snakes, reproductive organs of snakes, and skeletons. The 30 min show is a must. The best part is...

時間潰しのつもりで、大浜海洋館の帰りに寄りました。
まず、見るものがあまりなく、がつかりしました。
マングースとハブのショーは随分昔に撮影したDVDだし、生きてるハブの数は少ない。
その代わり、ホルマリン漬けのハブとハブ酒がいくつもありました。海蛇は只今入荷待ちとの事で見る事が出来ませんでした。
100円払って映像を見せる場所がありました。その映像の紹介がえげつない…。奇形の動物とか…。怖いもの見...

奄美の旅の思い出にずっと語られるであろう場所。名瀬の町を過ぎた坂の途中にあります。観光バスも来るのか駐車場は大き目です。夕方だったせいかお客さんは私達以外はいませんでした。入口付近は近所の年配の人のたまり場のようになっていました。ハブやヘビの気配を感じないのか慣れなのか、猫ものんびり座っていました。お土産や怪しげな健康食品、ハブが漬けてある瓶詰めが並ぶ1階から階段を降りていくと、資料や標本の展示...

          Over 100 active volcanoes across Kagoshima make it one of the Japan's most exciting prefectures. The prefectural capital, Kagoshima city, looks out to one of the prefecture’s most spectacular volcanoes, Sakurajima, an island of its own that can be visited and seen close up or admired from afar, with the promise of breathtaking sunsets complete with frequent puffs of smoke and ash. Down the Satsuma Peninsula, the most southerly part of mainland Japan, waterfalls, sand onsen, and fascinating history await, while Kagoshima's abundance of satsuma imo (sweet potato) provide a wholesome snack as well as one of Japan's favourite drinks - shochu.
