Sakura old Samurai houses

Numerous old samurai houses still remain in the Sakura City and three of the five samurai residences still standing along the street called Bukeyashiki-dori are currently open to the public. They are the former Kawara House, a Chiba Prefecture-designated Cultural Asset, the Tajima House, and the Takei House, a Sakura City-designated Cultural Asset. All three of them were constructed in the latter Edo period and inhabited by samurai of the Sakura domain. The Kawara House, the oldest of samurai houses in Sakura, exhibits furnishings that well represent the lifestyle of the samurai clansmen back in the day. The Tajima House has been at this place since the Edo period, and it is allowed to go inside for a viewing. Inside the Takei House are the excavated artifacts related to samurai houses on display. The street facing the samurai houses are lined with earthwork and hedges, in which the vestige of the castle town Sakura can be seen. These samurai houses are also used as the locations for shooting TV dramas and films. It is a 15-minute walk from the JR’s Sakura Station or a 15-minute walk from the Keisei Sakura Station

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
