Kyushu touring day 3 with NT1100 October 16, 2023.Chiran Peace Museum,Hanazebohi Park.知覧平和会館,花瀬望比公園
It's 7:11 am today on Monday morning . The temperature is 16 degrees. I'm leaving Amakusa now , and I'm thinking of stopping at the Chiran Memorial Museum first. Chiran Peace Museum, Hanase Mohi Park, Amakusa City, Kumamoto Prefecture. Hanazebohi Park) Amakusa, Minamikyushu City, Kagoshima Prefecture, is home to a lot of really small islands.
Well , it's beautiful, isn't it? Like the Goto Islands, like in Nagasaki? Well, it's an island . There are many small islands. I still have n't gotten through Amakusa. What's going on? Hello, I'm heading back the way I came yesterday. It took about an hour at night, and it's already evening . I'm back the way I came. I felt like I went down this road to stay at Marukiria's hotel, so I had a bit of a hard time choosing a hotel.I should have stayed at a hotel along the way, but I
was drawn to the word Amakusa, so I went all the way there . I got a hotel there, but in the end I didn't have much time to relax and I didn't have enough time to enjoy Amakusa to the fullest , so I ended up just going there. (lol) Well, it's the other way around. It was supposed to come from the right yesterday, right? After all, it says Amakusa, but I don't understand why.
It's heading northeast from the direction of sunrise. I don't really understand . Is it Gujo City? It's true that I'm still going around the island, and I haven't entered the Kyushu Expressway yet, so I've taken quite a detour.I was going to stay in Amakusa, so I took a lodging in Minamata, but I've already arrived in Kagoshima . That's it. I took a long detour . Well , this is also a trip. I left the hotel at 8:47am and the temperature was 20 degrees . I drove 62km. I took a short break at a roadside station called "Shiranui."
It's still Kyushu , which is quite far away . I haven't been able to ride a car, so I have a long way to go.I'm stuck at the roadside station "Shiranui."It 's not around here, or at least not here.I
wonder where I can park my motorcycle . I don't understand. This is the only place. Ah, I'm tired. I've just entered Kagoshima Prefecture and am heading to Chiran, but I still have 24km left to go towards Chiran.I lost a bit of time.My camera died on the way, and for some reason the battery suddenly went to zero . This GoPro is not good.It 's a GoPro10, but it keeps crashing, it overheats, and even though it's turned off, it just consumes electricity and goes down.I do n't understand why the battery dies even when I'm not recording.
I don't know if there's a bug somewhere or what. Anyway, the GoPro is extremely unstable. I ca n't really rely on whether it's working or not. I 'm thinking of getting a new one. Chiran Special Attack Peace Hall 800m left. After all, it's now 1:02 p.m. It's taking up a lot of time. 13:53
After leaving the Peace Memorial Museum in Chiran, I 'm going to Hanase Mohikoen Park.It's the southernmost tip of Kyushu.I visited there about 40 years ago. This is a place of great memories.At that time, camping is all the rage now, but we didn't have any money at that time, so we did what we called ``no-shuku'' camping.Isn't it nice to camp like that with a tent and sleeping bag ? I didn't have one , and it's becoming a trend these days.Even if
I had to get a rice cooker and water at a gas station , I ate with whatever I had.I cooked the rice in the rice cooker, but the side dishes were just Chikuwa. In those days, all you had to do was set up a tent and sleep.I remember camping out in Hanase Mohi Park in the middle of the night.However, in the middle of the night, it started raining and
a huge crosswind started blowing, and it seemed like a typhoon was coming.The tent was blown away . I was afraid that I would be attacked , so I closed up the store, or rather, my tent, around 11 p.m., and ran away from the park.The
park is located in a place overlooking the ocean, so the wind hits me very hard, so I didn't really have to leave my tent. I remember feeling like I was about to be blown away, so I ran to the center of Ibusuki and forced myself to stay at an inn that happened to be open in the middle of the night.At that time, I was asked if I wanted to eat dinner, and I said I hadn't.
He suddenly gave me some rice balls, and it's such a great memory.I was in my early 20s.That happened to me.I'm about to go there.It 's 4km away from Hanase Mohi Park, and I can't believe that's that thing you can see right in front of me. Mt.
Kaimondake, is n't it Satsuma Fuji? Wow, it's so nostalgic. It was over 40 years ago. I rode a GPZ750 and wanted to go even though I didn't have any money, but I was on a poor trip and only had enough money to pay for gas and Alpha, so I camped out on the coast. Even if you go to a campsite, you get paid, so you sleep on the side of the road, and there aren't any convenience stores like there are now, so you buy seaweed, sausages, chikuwa, and other food from the supermarket , and then you bring it home and cook it in a rice cooker on site. It's
really cheap , but it's still a nice memory.Now that I think about it , I don't want to get too close to campgrounds because of my trauma (lol) .People are the scariest thing.Humans are alone in the mountains. When we go camping, there are wild boars, monkeys, and other raccoon dogs, but basically they don't harm humans, and they don't come and touch bikes. There are many times when people are curious about things like that , trying to look nice in front of girls, people staring at me when I'm camping alone with my motorcycle parked, and getting into trouble in the middle of the night.
I avoid it because I want to experience it at least once.I think it's a lot different from back then, and there seems to be etiquette at campgrounds.In the past, there wasn't one.It's a mess,
so it's 11:00 p.m. and 12:00 p.m. Up until now, we had a normal party , and there were a lot of people who were making noise and peeking into the tents next to us.I won't say anything, but the people who came in groups tended to get angry when they drank alcohol . The bad thing is that the people are the worst.There
's only 2.6 kilometers left. There's still 4.5km left. It's almost there. Kaimondake is 4km away. That's amazing. Enter Ibusuki City.
Wow, I feel so nostalgic that I'm running again on the same road I ran over 40 years ago . This is what fate is like. I never thought I'd come here again.
I entered Ibusuki City. Wow, I'm truly overwhelmed with emotion. Almost there. nostalgic. Wow, I don't remember. It's right next to Mt. Kaimondake.
It was so long ago that I don't remember, but oh my, back then , wow, it's finally here. Oh, this, this, this , I camped here here . Yes , it's so nostalgic. Wow, wait a minute. Is it okay here? Ah wow, this is nostalgic Hanase Mohikoen Park. Statue of Sohi mother and child.A symbol of the families of soldiers looking toward the Philippines and praying for their safe return.The distance traveled today was 325.3km.Thank
you for watching.
