Canoeing in the park.

After I was back from Kinsakubaru primeval forest, I got my baggage at the hotel and got on the bus to Mangrove park.

Amami 2015 (4/9) : Kinsakubaru Primeval Forest (金作原原生林)
Lots of endemic species remain in the forest. On second day morning, I got up early and checked out for paticipating the tour of Kinsakubaru primeval forest. The car of the tour picked me up in front...
Though Amami is surrounded by splended sea, I did nothing but go places that can’t be seen sea :p

We can canoe and see mangrove at this park. It cost us 1500 yen.
Truthfully speaking, I wasn’t interested in seeing mangrove from the canoe.Just I wanted canoeing :p

ここではカヌーでマングローブの中を散策できるということで行ってみたかったんです。というかカヌーがしたかっただけです(ノ∀`)

Though over 20 years had passed since I tried canoeing before, the staff taught me how to canoe and went ahead !

というわけで20年ぶり2回目のカヌーでゴー(ノ∀`)

There was no one except the staff and me. Luxury time. I heard that there’re not many people coming to there on Sundays afternoon.

日曜の午後はあまりお客さんがこないとのことで、この景色独り占め(^^*)ガイドの人はいたけど。

とても景色が良かったです。奄美って海がきれいなんですけど、海のないとこばっかりいってしまいました。

満潮時は木の間をカヌーで通れるらしいです。干潮時には陸になっていて上がれます(`・ω・´)

If the tide is full, we can canoe between those mangrove trees. But as you see, it wasn’t. So, we could stand on the place and see many living things like shrimps and crabs.

Colorful leaves.

南の島っぽいカラフルな植物も。

By the way, I ate goat curry at the restaurant in Mangrove park because I had to wait about one hour for canoeing. Well I didn’t eat anything after breakfast !

カヌーの時間まで1時間くらいあったのでここでごはんを食べました。そういえば、朝食のあと何も食べてませんでした(ノ∀`)

The staff said to me that goat meat have strong smell, but I decided to eat it. Certainly, the meat had strong smell, but much spices of curry and garlic chips made it milder. Umm. But it had strong taste all the same :p
Still I ate it up. This was the first time to eat goat. It was curious experience for me 🙂

ヤギカレー。独特の臭みのあるヤギ肉をスパイスとにんにくチップが和らげてくれます…がやっぱり、癖が強いな(ノ∀`)

After canoeing, I examined the bus schedule. There was no time to lose ! Last bus to my hotel that day was just 20 minutes later !

There is small aquarium in the architecture. And we can miniature golf, too. You can enjoy in the park throughout the day. But I said good-bye to them quickly and went to the bus stop.
