Let’s continue our Journey to Okinoshima with Tamaki Hiroshi ^^

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[09-57-39]

After eating the bakudan onigiri, Tamaki san is heading back to the nature again. Where he can find some unexplored beauties in the middle of the forest…. A gorgeous waterfall!

… But on his way, he happens to meet an old lady! And greets her…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[09-58-06]

… the old lady is quite surprised and I bet she doesn’t know who he is… XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[09-58-12]

Tamaki san apologizes for surprising her and then asks her if she is here to see the waterfall…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[09-58-20]

Seems like she just came back down after seeing it… (To be honest I don’t understand some of the words she says and I think even Tamaki san has trouble understanding XD)

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[09-58-52]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[09-59-21]

The old lady is super cute! She asks Tamaki san “Where are you guys from?”

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[09-59-43]

And when Tamaki san replies “We came here from Tokyo!” The lady says “Scary place!” or at least I think that’s what she says XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[09-59-52]

And then says “I’m from this area!” And Tamaki san says “Yes you are!” hehehe he already knows that XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-00-05]

Then Tamaki san says “Please take care…” as she’s about to leave and they both thank each other!!

I love the look in his eyes when he’s looking at her XD She was so cute!!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-00-37]

OK! Back to the forest…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-00-49]

Dangyou no taki (壇鏡の滝) is the name of the waterfall!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-00-57]

It’s his first time visiting the place and just being in this place heals your heart he says…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-21-23]

… on his way to the waterfall he has an encounter with a man who’s coming down the slope…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-22-00]

says Hello to him as he always does to everyone he meets on his way!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-23-54]

But the man recognizes him and says “I’ve seen that face before!” XD And Tamaki san laughs…

He asks the man if he’s from this area and he says yes, and they start talking about the place…

… and suddenly a group of people who seem to be the man’s relatives arrive and he puts his hand on Tamaki san’s shoulder and says proudly… “Look!… You have seen him on TV, right?”

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-25-05]

hahahahaha and the reaction of the old lady is super great…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-28-05]

…No emotions on her face until she realizes who’s standing there in front of her and suddenly she runs into him saying “That actor…?” hihihihi XD Yeah that’s him!!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-28-11]

… and Tamaki san is worried about her falling down the cliff so he guards her with his hand and says “Be careful!” XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-32-06]

Then thanks her and asks them if they also live here and they reply with yes!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-32-19]

Then the old lady suddenly realizes that she’s being filmed and becomes embarrassed and moves backward…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-32-44]

and again Tamaki san asks her to be careful!!

(Next time I meet him I hope it’s somewhere near a cliff or something!! XD )

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-32-49]

Then he asks them if it’s their first time visiting the waterfall and they say that it’s not and seems like they have visited the place many times before.

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-33-11]

As he leaves the ladies and heads back to the road, he greets every single member of their group…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-37-39]

and asks the last person if he had caught anything… and he says that he caught some butterflies!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-37-49]

Tamaki san says “Isn’t your net too big?!” and the young man laughs and says “So that they can’t run away!”

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-37-58]

As he walks away from the group, he talks about the importance of greeting people in the proper way.

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-38-22]

He says that people of course do greet him when he’s walking in the city, but in places like this or when climbing a mountain, where there’s a route and you greet all the people you pass by, coming down or climbing up… it gives you a good feeling! Being able to say hello to everyone on your way!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-52-20]

Then he talks about his feeling… he’s excited to see the waterfall!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-52-33]

His first “Unexplored beauty” discovery in this series ^^

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-54-25]

As he gets closer to the waterfall…

the sound of the water falling on the stones becomes stronger and louder every second…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-54-56]

Climbing up the stairs… he says that you can feel the existence of a long history in these stones…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-56-18]

And he finally gets to the waterfall…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-58-47]

And his eyes sparkle as he’s amazed by teh beauty of the place…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-59-02]

And of course he starts taking photos…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[10-59-53]

and more photos XD XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-00-56]

And he goes deeper…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-01-19]

to the cave behind the waterfall and keeps watching the water falling down.

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-01-30]

He says that every second it’s a different view, a different shape

… the water keeps moving and it’s never the same!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-05-04]

He says that there are lots of places you think you know well but you don’t… as you live in this world, you have a territory you live in which is quite limited… you realize that when you see places like this…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-33-15]

Then he starts talking about himself.

Going to many different countries because of his job,

when he’s asked “What kind of a place is your country?”…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-19-13]

He can’t explain much he says… maybe only the superficial things he knows about it…

…and that’s something he really doesn’t like.

That’s why from now on, he’s going to many places and will see everything with his own eyes…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-25-19]

So that he can talk to them more about the many beauties existing in Japan…

“The power of the nature is amazing!” he says!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-33-23]

Back to the town…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-33-48]

Tamaki san encounters a cute cafe on his way and decides to get inside…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-34-06]

As always, he asks for permission first and then the crew gets inside…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-34-25]

Two cute ladies are working in the cafe and seems like they have opened just a week ago!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-35-56]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-36-21]

Then Tamaki san asks if there’s a recommended menu and the ladies recommend Chiffon cake!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-37-10]

Which Tamaki san seems to have noticed in the showcase by the door…


DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-37-22]

The sweet lover Tamaki Hiroshi gets his Chiffon cake and starts eating…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-37-33]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-40-20]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-40-31]

As always… before eating… he smells the cake XD And then eats a bite!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-41-15]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-41-26]

And say it’s tasty!!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-41-45]

Then tells them it has a warm feeling of home made cake… well it is handmade after all XD

Then they surprise him with and extra service…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-46-34]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-46-41]

looks great and probably tastes good!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[11-46-46]

As the young lady explains, it’s an ice cream made of Oki’s melon,

the design is a collaboration of the mountain and the sea…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-02-46]

… and as Tamaki san notices, there are tiny pieces of Chiffon cake again…

but this time each piece was frozen XD

Very interesting taste it should be!

And seems like Tamaki san is interested too…

so he takes a piece of frozen chiffon cake before eating the ice cream…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-07-14]

And we can see that he likes it!!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-09-08]

He starts eating the ice cream as well…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-07-27]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-07-32]

I was worried about the melon thing but seems like the taste is not that strong and he enjoyed it very much ^^

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-09-54]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-10-01]

ICE CREAM MISSION, DONE!!  XD

Let’s keep following him around the town again…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-10-14]

As he walks in the silent streets of the town…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-10-31]

… a very old Barber shop appears in front of him!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-10-57]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-10-48]

He opens the door and greets the old man inside…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-11-19]

Then ask him for permission to enter the shop and talk to him a little bit!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-11-50]

hehehehe the owner puts on his shirt and Tamaki san apologizes for the interruption and enters the shop!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-12-16]

As he gets inside,

Tamaki san asks him how old the shop is and he says around 44 or 45 years old!!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-12-29]

Tamaki san says that the smell in this shop is kinda nostalgic for him…

gives him a sense of security…makes him calm…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-32-36]

He tells the old man that his own father was born in Nishinoshima,

but it’s been so long since last he visited this part of the Oki islands…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-32-49]

so he’s wondering if the old man can recommend something he can enjoy at the end of his trip in okinoshima.

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-32-57]

The old man recommends Sumo and Bullfighting!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-35-28]

I SEE!

So let’s go see some Sumo he decides XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-36-58]

As expected… the young Sumo wrestlers are practicing!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-37-48]

He asks for permission and then get close and starts watching them….

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-37-56]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-38-10]

As they practice really hard…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-40-01]

Tamaki san is surprised of how tough the training is…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-40-05]

“It must be TOUGH!” he says…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-40-25]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-40-37]

And a young wrestler standing near him….

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-40-42]

points to his own Mawashi (The special outfit Sumo wrestlers wear)

and says “How about it?!”

which means how about wearing Mawashi like us and entering the ground… hahahahahahaha XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-41-01]

Tamaki san kinda freaks out and says: “Mawashi?” hehehehe

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-41-04]

and then laughs out loud and says “not yet, too embarrassing!”

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-41-28]

Then the young man explains about a unique style called “ninjou zumo” in which the person who wins the first round, will lose on purpose on the next one!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[12-59-47]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-02-52]

Then Tamaki san talks to each one of them a little bit about when they started and how many hours they practice everyday.

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-03-53]

And he says that he’s happy to see the young wrestlers practicing hard and keeping Sumo alive as it is an important traditional sport!

Then he wishes them good luck and leaves them to practice again XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-04-27]

Heading to the next destination…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-08-07]

Bullfighting!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-08-14]

Tamaki san visits a huge ground especially made for training the bulls!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-09-00]

And encounters a man with his bull being tied near him… ready t practice on the ground…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-09-06]

Tamaki san asks his permission and starts watching their practice!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-25-13]

And the bulls fight on the ground…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-25-51]

the young man says that they wont let any of them lose or win during the practice!

because this may affect them and they might lose their motivation for the real fight!!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-26-13]

After the practice is over…

Tamaki san gets to talk to the man a little bit…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-28-05]

seems like his father and also his grandfathers have been doing the same thing and then Tamaki san asks him if he has a child and as he says yes, he asks him if he’s planning to pass it down to him?

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-28-34]

And he says “Only if he wants to!” hehehehe of course!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-31-23]

Then Tamaki san looks down and tells the bull: “You’ve got to be tired…”

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-33-11]

… and pets him on his forehead ♡

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-33-29]

Strange!! The angry bull on the ground looks so calm in front of him ^^

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-37-35]

And as he leaves them behind, and as he walks away, he says that it’s a good thing, taking the responsibility of passing down an old traditions to the next generation…

It’s almost the end of the trip…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-38-56]

Tamaki san is walking the road and there he encounters a family of 3… a young couple with their son!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-39-08]

Tamaki san greets them and says “He’s walking with all his might!!”

and asks his mother if he’s 2 and she says 1 and half…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-41-21]

Then suddenly his father picks him up and he starts crying (This time it’s not Tamaki san’s fault!!!) XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-41-34]

What amazes me is how Tamaki san starts to imitate his crying sound as he cries XD hehehehe

But as soon as he goes to his mother…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-42-59]

He makes a very cute face for the man he doesnt even know XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-44-34]

And when his mother tells him to say hi…

Tamaki san reaches his hand toward him and he grabs it right away XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-46-27]

OK! They are friends XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-46-38]

As they all start walking again…

Tamaki san tries to attract his new friend’s attention and reaches his hand again

hoping that he would grab it and walk with him…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-47-17]

But somehow…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-48-36]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-48-44]

He ignores him and passes by!!! ahahahahahahaha XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-49-57]

Tamaki san gives up and let him gauide him to wherever he wants to go XD

But another chance….

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-50-42]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-51-18]

YESSS…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-51-28]

aaaa

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-51-32]

aaaaaa no! Seems like he’s fooling around with him!! hehehehehe

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-51-45]

… then as they start walking again he suddenly decides to leave everyone and run on the opposite side XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-53-36]

hehehehe this boy is really something XD Good thing his mother catches him right away XD

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-53-50]

And here it is… another beautiful view appearing in front of our traveler’s eyes… ^^

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-55-32]

daisen oki kokuritsu kouen 大山隠岐国立公園

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-59-27]

A very beautiful place…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-55-50]

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-57-25]

“A landscape like this can only be found on an island !!” he says.

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-57-31]

And as his comment about Oki… the place he visited this time…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[13-59-50]

He says: “Here in Oki, you can feel a great power… Just by looking around the place!”

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[14-00-28]

… and he adds “Getting busy working everyday… well that’s OK as well but, when you pass the age of 30, there are times when you want to go a place, relax and think about stuff by yourself.”

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[14-00-58]

“…At times like that, you can borrow the power of the Nature and the unexplored areas… can be a good way!”

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[14-07-11]

“I think being able to experience pure discoveries, and getting to visit these kinds of places can be great…”

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[14-06-01]

and in the end.. he explains about the next episode where he goes to Nishinoshima… where his father was born!!

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[14-11-32]

And he will show us the places he has kept dear in his heart since childhood…

DVD_VIDEO_RECORDER.Title1[14-11-48]

Be with him (And with me too!!! hehehe) on the next trip as well!!

  1. Hahaha, it’d be hilarious to see Tamaki in the mawashi, but he’s not the kind to do something like this. So glad he gets the chance to explore this beautiful place, and I’m glad he’s getting such positive reception from the people he meets!

    Thanks again for the report and photos, you’re doing a great job!

    Liked by 1 person

  2. Hahaha!! No he’s not the type!! That’s why he laughed like that XD
    He’s very natural and dow to earth wherever he goes. People do get nervous at first when he starts talking to them, but after a few minutes they totally forget the fact that he’s a famous actor! He can easily reach people’s hearts with his polite attitude and kind, smiling face ^^
