The Oze photos.

I have been dreaming of going to the Oze National Park, ever since my graduate school days. Dr. Tokunagawa, who was an associate professor of the laboratory, used to say "Let's go to Oze with many people". (If you have a sufficient knowledge of the Japanese language, you would notice that this particular sentence would work as a pun.) The lab trip never became a reality, and my dream had to wait for some 20 years to materialize.

Well, life is like that.

The Oze district, characterized by marshes and unique vegetations surrounded by mountains, is an idealized image of the tranquility and harmony of nature.

I heartily recommend a visit to Oze for anyone who needs a break from the busy life in civilization.

Thank you very much for the beautiful photos.

Everytime I hear the name "Oze", automatically the melody of "Summer Memory" (whose lyrics were written by my aunt!) starts to flow in my mind, and I feel strong nostalgia although I have never been there.(I hear that neither had my aunt who passed away several years ago.)

It is very good that you had a refreshing stay there. You deserve well to have such an opportunity!

Beautiful photos... Amazing... Dreamy almost. Your photos made me want to visit Oze. Thank you for sharing them with us.

I'm sorry you couldn't go there with your father. He must be a wonderful man to love a magical place like this.
