Japanese maple leaves(autumn colors)etc; 

First of all, I wish to say so sorry for my absence to you. After I came back with oranges from my cousin, I was busy visiting places and having guests picking boxes.  
Despite the situation,my husband told me to check the place we can enjoy "紅葉. kouyou",  direct translation of the chinese character is Red Leaves

重源の郷 “chogen-no-sato”
This place located "chogen-no-sato" in Tokuji-town, where no longer has citizens. Named after the old priest who contributed to the reconstruction of the Todaiji-temple. 
I enjoyed the old Japanese Thatched House with red maple leaves.
I wish you also enjoy Japanese "Beautiful Autumn Nature"
To our surprise, they harvest buckwheat around this place. We had "soba-noodle" for lunch. (for me, my husband's the best p:-)

Stilts bamboo horse made by the Woodworking shop here.
On our way here, we saw harvested buckwheat were being dried.
So Happy for our first chance to see them (not the rice crop).

On our way home, I visited "Rurikuji-temple 瑠璃光寺" I posted several times here.  As today Nov. 15th is the Seven-Five-Three festival "Shichi-Go-San (七五三)" ←link  to celebrate the healthy growth of the children.
          We saw lovely girl with Kimono, her parents agreed the photo taking :-)

My first (short) video of blue heron♪ 

Oh, it's 1:00 am p:)  Wish to start Seeing You after waking up.
(About my header; sorry if unmatched, I change it every post.)


  1. oh, the maples... loved the walls, the fences, the sweet little lady. :) beautiful.

  2. Perhaps picturesque would be the right word to describe your beautiful Japanese maple sceneries. Just lovely Miyako - I wish you a good week!

  3. Lovely photos Miyako. The little girl is so pretty in her kimono.


  4. Thank you for the photograph of the daughter !
    To a daughter like Miyako
    I want to let you learn English!

  5. Miyako, I have never seen buckwheat as a plant or drying. I have ate buckwheat pancakes. Japan is experiencing Fall, my favorite season. I especially liked how creative your heading of the post this week is. You are an amazing, talented and humble person. I am so glad to have met you on Blogger. Thank you for your friendship.

  6. Hello Miyako, the red maples are just gorgeous. I love the pretty temple and scene. Great heron video. The buckwheat drying looks neat. Lovely collection of photos. Happy Thursday, enjoy your day and the weekend ahead!

  7. oh what beautiful pictures! i just made my husband buckwheat pancakes this week for breakfast :)

  8. Such beautiful autumn colors! Your photos are amazing! I love the old style building at Chogen-no-sato. I wonder if kids nowadays walk on stilts. When I was a kid, we made them at home and walked around :-)
    Autumn colors at Rurikuji-temple are looking stunning, too. The little girl is very pretty :-)
    Have a wonderful day, Miyako san!

  15. Hello Miyako!:) The Japonese Maple trees lend even more beauty to these gorgeous scenes, and the photo with the Temple is breathtaking. I'm glad you saw the little girl, as she looks lovely in her Kimono. Thank you for sharing the buckwheat field, ( something I have never seen before,) the pretty flowers, and full marks for your first Heron video. Have a great weekend Miyako.:)

    Loved viewing the heron.

    It was a wonderful, so enjoyable post today. Thanks for coming by and adding your link this weekend at I'd Rather B Birdin' for us bird enthusiasts!!

  20. Am stuck on your blog (a good thing, right?) I looked at your video - nice walk of the heron - at the end was a story about the plane of Trump, and looked at that, then my husband looked at it too, then we ate dinner:)
    But I love it when the leaves of the trees turn red! And wished they would still bundle the wheat/grain like on your image. It looks beautiful this way. Many thanks for sharing with ALL SEASONS, Myako. Wishing you a happy week!

  21. The fall colors are absolutely breathtaking! Thank you so much for joining Friday's Hunt. Hope you have a great week!

  22. Delightful shots!
