Yanagawa 柳川 – water water everywhere

It’s water water everywhere!

Yanagawa (柳川) is known for its hundreds of kilometers of canals and hence its name “city of water” in Japan. Guided cruise along its canals is one of the top tourist activity when visiting this city in Fukuoka Prefecture, Kyushu. A photo (1st one below) was taken outside the ruins of the Yanagawa Castle built in Eiroku Period (1558-1570).

The cruise is roughly an hour so like me you may become very hungry … not to worry! Unagi no Seiro-mushi (eel rice steamed in a basket) is one of the specialties of Yanagawa. In fact there’re a few eel rice restaurants once you alight the canal cruise. Below 👇🏻 is the city’s website where you’ll find lots of information on the canal cruise and list of eel rice restaurants. Enjoy 😉

Forest walk </strong>🌳<strong> and how I’m reusing ♻️ my snack bags

I grew up in the city. Therefore taking forest walks like this was impossible except on travels. I love forest and nature sounds, birds singing, water flowing. It is feeling of being alive and that mother nature is beautiful and wonderful.

Forest and nature sounds, birds singing

Every bit in our efforts to fight climate change and save the earth counts.

Instead of buying sandwich or snack bags, I’ve been reusing these. Good quality bags used by manufacturers to keep our biscuits, sweets and chocolates. Double lock resealable, aluminum foil lined and some with bases too. Not to mention they look good 😊. I always have 1 in my bag for unexpected takeout needs.

wash and reuse

Thanks for reading and have a great day!
