Demon Fireworks Of Noboribetsu

Located in Hokkaido, Noboribetsu is home of the famous Jigokudani or “Hell Valley,” a volcanic crater said to resemble hell on earth. But it’s just as scenic as it is hellish, and after you’ve enjoyed a hike during summer, the fiery devils appear at night for the Demon Fireworks of Noboribetsu.

With swirling steam wafting upwards to the heaves, one wouldn’t be surprised to find a few demons hiding in the rugged terrain or enjoying the naturally occurring hot springs and footbaths.

The fireworks displays are free to watch typically in June and July, and start at 8:30 p.m., with a run time of about 30 minutes. To get a seat on the raised viewing steps for the fireworks, arrive about 8 p.m. However, note that those wearing open-toed shoes will not be allowed in this section.

Otaru Hokaido

Otaru, a port city on Hokkaido (Japan’s northernmost island), lies northwest of Sapporo on Ishikari Bay. The city is known for glassworks, music boxes and sake distilleries. Nishin Goten (“herring mansion”), a former fish processing plant built in 1897, explores the industry’s key role in the city’s earlier years. Completed in 1923, the Otaru Canal is now lined with cafes and shops in converted old warehouses.

Villa Marmarine,Dive Resort Siquior

VILLA MARMARINE opened in the Siquijor Island in July 2005. The hotel has a homey atmosphere and it is managed by Japanese. This is the best place for the families and for visitors who plans a longer stay in the island. We have the most beautiful beach in Siquijor Island though it is yet not been recognize as a sightseeing spot, and also the best location for a person who wants to spend his moment in serenity.It is a small resort with four cottages and restaurant that had just started. At night, brilliant fireflies fly over the cottages and some are seen in the seashore and the wonderful starry sky that welcomes you

Paliton Beach, Siquior Visayas

Considered by some to be the most beautiful beach on the island it is located just a 4 kms from San Juan close to Tambisan Port. The fine white sand and the view to Negros and Apo island make this small beach (approx. 150m long) a special location. Fishermen pull their boats out and you can find many that have found their final resting place there and make great photography subjects. At high tide you can lay in the small natural ‘pools’ that are characteristic of Paliton. To find the road to Paliton you need to look out for the small church in barangay Paliton and turn down the road towards the sea, the beach is located approximately 1.5km on the main road.

Around Siquior, Philippines

A

n island of witchcraft, healing, spiritual rituals, and…. beaches. Siquijor is truly a one of a kind island. For centuries, the indigenous people on this tiny island off the coast of Bohol have been living in the mountains where they brew and concoct special potions to cure physical ailments, treat emotional scars, and to dispel evil spirits.

Unless you need an exorcism, however, you might be more interested to know what kind of adventures this island has in store for you. As with most islands in the Visayas, Siquijor is a vacationer’s paradise with white sand beaches, turquoise water, mysterious caves, incredible reefs, sublime snorkel spots, and gorgeous guesthouses. With one of the highest literacy rates in the country, you can expect lots of friendly locals who are eager to speak English with you.

To get there, catch a ferryboat from Dumaguete or Tagbilaran that will take you to the Siquijor port where you’ll be able to catch a tricycle into town
