Amami~Kakeromajima (3)

Hello my friends!!

Finally, I’m here with the last part of the English report for the

Amami~Kakeromajima journey.

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[11-30-46]

Tamaki san gets on the boat to have a look around the island. His guide is Houshin san.

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[11-28-27]

They find a white goat on a cliff of one of the tiny islands,

Tamaki san whistles with his fingers to get his attention XD

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[11-31-33]

The goat notices them, looks at them and then runs away ^^

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[11-35-17]

Seems like many of them can be found around here. living freely on the island

without the disturbance of the human beings.

They get closer to the island.

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[11-37-44]

In front of them, there’s a very beautiful cave,

made by the power of the waves, creating a huge hole in the heart of the rocks on the island.

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[11-38-07]

Houshin san says that there are Swallows living inside the cave.

And they will come out if you make some noise or call for them.

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[11-41-00]

So Tamaki san starts clapping his hands to make some noise…

then uses his fingers again and whistles loudly!

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[11-45-09]

The tiny birds get out of the cave to see where the noise is coming from.

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[11-45-21]

“It is said that it will rain when the swallows come out…”

Tamaki san says,

“But I didn’t know that they could actually live this close to the water in a cave!”

he adds.

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[11-45-59]

Then they leave the birds and move to another island.

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-04-30]

Houshin san points toward the island with his finger and says:

“Tamaki san! Look over there… look carefully!”

And he does as his guide says…

suddenly an amazingly beautiful flow of water jumps out of the rocks!!!

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-04-53]

As it’s jumping out from the back of a wale.

Tamaki san is amazed, he holds his camera in his hands and waits for the next one…

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-09-17]

“Come out!!” he says with a naughty smile on his face XD

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-09-35]
And YES! He captures the moment…

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-09-39]

then looks back to see the faces of his team members as well XD

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-09-45]

He is really excited ♥(o´艸`)

It’s not a very complicated thing…

there’s a hole in the heart of the stones and when the waves get a little bit strong,

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-11-25]

they water enters the hole and the air inisde the whole makes the water come out with pressure like that.
This is all made by the hands of the nature… this is what makes it exciting!

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-15-15]

And that’s not the only spot! There are more of them all around the island…

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-18-17]

As they move with the boat, another huge splash right in front of them!!

“Woah!!” Tamaki san says!!

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-17-22]

Bigger and bigger!!! Much higher than the height of the boat!!

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-18-17]

Tamaki san is completely enjoying this…

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-18-33]

It is not visible in the image, but one huge splash comes too close

and makes Tamak san turn his body over to protect his camera from getting wet XD

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-18-50]

He is super excited…

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-22-07]

Then he looks at the camera man and says:
“He is making such a calm face now but the water came all the way here…”

while pointing with his hand XD

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-22-47]

Everyone laugh and it’s obvious they are having a good time XD

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-22-26]

After that… it’s time to actually take the challenge and ride on a kayak!! O__O

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-35-54]

It’s his first time doing something like this and he is very excited…

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-37-04]

Well he is already very good at it (^_^;) as expected!

The staff follow him on another boat and as soon as they come close to him,

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-37-17]

he looks at them and says: “This is amazing!! Really extravagant!”

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-41-45]

riding on the huge waves, moving up and down,

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-42-52]

getting all soaked up XD

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-48-05]

enjoying it to the fullest!! As expected from him XD

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-42-34]

This is one of those moments when words are not enough…
No matter how much I try to explain it, this is one moment you should watch by yourself!

I was shouting with him in front of the TV the first time I watched this XD

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-45-53]

Calming down a little bit… they all enter the beautiful cave,

 To make a visit to the Ao no doukutsu (Blue Grotto) inside.

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-45-42]

Getting inside the cave, Tamaki san says that it’s a whole different world and also mentions

that it’s much warmer than outside the cave.

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-48-43]

To see the Blue Grotto, you should go deeper inside the cave,

but since the waves are too strong today,

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-50-03]

Houshin san says that they cannot go any further… >__<

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-50-17]

That’s a shame but on a normal day, this is how the water inside the cave looks like.

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-54-25]

I can image Tamaki san floating freely on the water…
Just use your imagination and he is there XD

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-54-46]

After coming out of the cave again,

Tamaki san says that it’s OK even if they couldn’t go deeper…

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-54-57]

“I’m overwhelmed by the power of the nature…

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-57-33]

After all… when people experience thrill right by their side,

their tension rises up and they become excited!

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[13-08-51]

And I think being able to see an amazing scenery in a situation like that, 

will make you feel even happier compared to a normal situation. 

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-59-26]

I’m glad I was able to see many different faces of kakeromajima.

I think that might be the appeal of this island,

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[13-09-31]

and the reason why it can attract so many people to come and visit the place.”

Tamaki san, can really enjoy every little thing to its fullest!

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[12-59-47]

As the narrator of the show says:

第20回 鹿児島・奄美~加計呂麻島[13-12-03]

Being able to enjoy the destination of your trip or not,

it all depends on the abilities of the traveler himself!


Another journey comes to an end…
