Kawachi Fuji Gardens in Kitakyushu, Japan ( 5 hours from Tokyo, if you take the Nozomi high speed train) is where you will find this pastel-colored fairy tale tunnel.

The gardens are home to about 150 Wisteria flowering plants spanning 20 different species (white, blue, purple, violet-blue and pink). This is the reason why the Wisteria tunnel is so colorful and graceful.  The Kawachi Wisteria Garden only opens seasonally in spring and autumn (approximately middle of April to end of May, and mid November to mid December). Its main feature are the beautiful wisteria vines planted over an 110 meter long tunnel, an 80 meter long tunnel, two domes, and a large trellis the size of several tennis courts.

Mountain Bluebirds

November 3, 2016

The mountain bluebird (Sialia currucoides) is a medium-sized bird weighing about 1.1 oz with a length from 6–8 in. They have light underbellies and black eyes. Adult males have thin bills and are bright turquoise-blue and somewhat lighter underneath. Adult females have duller blue wings and tail, grey breast, grey crown, throat and back. In fresh fall plumage, the female’s throat and breast are tinged with red-orange, brownish near the flank contrasting with white tail underparts.

The mountain bluebird is just as “western” as the Western Bluebird, but the two species occupy different habitats in summer. The Western is more of a forest bird, the Mountain more partial to open habitats: high sagebrush desert, mountain meadows, and even alpine tundra.
