Venus Bridge, Kobe [Aug. 25th, 2003|01:13 am]
susan smitten

Edna left for California this morning, after two weeks, three festivals, a castle, endless weird food, and numerous temples. I hope we made it the trip of a lifetime for her. I'm so tired I can hardly see, after staying up all night visiting with her, as well as experiencing the electrifying, mind-bending, plastering frenzy of Chez Scotto. Today I couldn't hear for the pounding in my head, and I don't think I speak for only myself.

Here are some shots of Kobe that Don and I snapped early last week.

Love people were here.

Venus Bridge attracts new and true couples who make the exhausting hike to Sannomiya's best lookout spot. We found it accidentally.

Edna, Don, and lots of locks...

I love Kobe! See the sea?

Don took this picture through the mounted binoculars. Pretty, huh?

Foxes in a nice little shrine on the same mountain. (生田神社?)

i read my friends list, turned on the tv and the first thing on the screen was that big tower in the kobe port!! and i was like 'aaah aaah, i just saw that on lj!' hehe, it was a documentary about bridges and they were talking about that huge bridge from the mainland to that little island... i can't remember names but you'll know what bridge i'm talking about!!

Hi, plumb! =) My friend from Kobe who lived in Seattle said the same thing. To find Venus Bridge, go to Motomachi station, and then walk directly north. Keep going up! It's light green and near a weird old house on the mountain that you can see from Motomachi.

*whoa* glimspe from MY past!

i NOW just notice this post [i don't remember what summer entry i was looking from you now... dammit!] but anyway, my host parents had taken me up to Venus Bridge one summer night to catch a view and they shared a kiss [but of course out of respect didn't take their picture XP]. however, that roll of film fell out somewhere between Rokko Island and me going home the last week before I left. *sadness* ah well. I went to Kobe Tower; made me miss Seattle [ and yeah it was overcast then too! crazy! ] aaaaah! memories! so pretty! ^_^
