"Onga-gawa Gyodou Kouen"

It was also fine and I had a short stop at the mouth of Onga-river again. I saw a part of the river mouth weir has been renewed as "Onga-gawa Gyodou Kouen"(遠賀川魚道公園). It permits small fishes to go up the river

It was fine and I enjoyed a short cycling after an interval of about three month. I did not ride on my bike during this period because of cold weather and allergy to pollen.

I found a group of people who set digital cameras with telephoto lens at the mouth of Onga-river(遠賀川). I questioned one of them about what they want to take. He told me that they wanted to take a photo of the moment  that "Misago"(ミサゴ) catches game. He also taught me "Misago" is translated in English, "osprey" that is known for American military plane that has recently been deployed at the American Military Base. The plane's name is from the bird's movement that it can hover when it captures game.

This was a little bit ironic scene that showed peaceful moment of bird watchers, but led to a military word for me.

Last Saturday, I stayed at an accommodation in Hitoyoshi Onsen (人吉温泉) that locates in the southern part of Kumamoto prefecture with my wife and daughter. This time, my son was not with us because he went to Kansai area (関西地方) with his friend. I am a little bit sorry that the chance thta all my family members share the same time decrease.

"Hitoyoshi Onsen" was one of the place that I want to visit sometime. The purpose of this trip was to heal our  bodies by bathing in onsen and take good dishes.

It took over four hours to reach there from my house by using the high way, so I was slightly tired from it.
