Looking for camellia flowers in Goto islands. 五島列島に椿を訪ねて。

We went to Goto islands for 3 days.

The distance between Tokyo and Goto islands is about one thousand kilos.

Tokyo International Haneda airport.
It was a fine day, we could see Mt.Fuji clearly.

Arriving at Fukue island, we climbed Mt.Onidake.

The view from the top of the mountain. 

There is a castle site in this island. I walked around the site.

There are carp in this moat.

Shiroyama shrine for the former feudal lords.

There are a few reminding Samurai residences near the castle site.

These stone walls reminds me there was the one.

The gate reminds me the same things.

It is said the ageof  this big camellia tree is about 300 years old.

The primitive camellia forest in Hisakajima island.

This kind of camellia named Tamanoura.
The most beautiful flowers among camellia ones in Goto islands.

Very big one.
