島根県出雲大社紹介動画について こちらの動画は「しまねっこCH」が公開した「Izumo Taisha Grand Shrine」です。 島根を観光するなら出雲大社は絶対に外せない！日本の古き良き文化を再認識できるおすすめ観光スポットです！ こちらの記事では、島根県の王道観光スポット、縁結びで有名な出雲大社について紹介致します。 また、出雲大社周辺へのアクセスや駐車場情報も合わせて紹介させて頂きますので要チェックです。 島根県出雲大社とは 出雲大社とは、正しくは「いずものおおやしろ」と読み、島根県出雲市にある縁結びで有名で、島根以外にも全国から参拝客や観光客が訪れる神社です。 八雲山を背にするように建っており、その歴史は、日本最古の歴史書である古事記にも創建の記載があり、数千年を超えることがわかります。 主祭神は「大国主大神（おおくにぬしのおおかみ）」で、縁結びの神様と言われています。 島根県出雲大社は日本唯一の神在月 日本は通常旧暦の10月を「神無月」と呼びますが、島根県の出雲地方では日本で唯一「神在月」と呼びます。 これは、全国の神様が旧暦の10月に島根県の出雲大社に集まるため、そのほかの地域では神様が居なくなるからという説があります。 「神在月」をより実感することが出来るイベントとして、島根の出雲地域では旧暦の10月・神在月になると、神様を迎える神迎祭（かみむかえさい）、八百万の神が縁結びや来年の収穫について話し合う神在祭（かみありさい）、神様がそれぞれの国に帰る為の神等去出祭（からさでさい）という一連の祭事を行います。 この時期になると島根以外にも全国から多くの観光客が集まり、出雲大社を参拝に訪れます。 島根県出雲大社へのアクセスや駐車場情報 島根県出雲大社への観光の際はレンタカーを借りることをおすすめします。 自動車での出雲大社へのアクセスは、、JR出雲市駅から約20分でアクセスできます。 駐車場は出雲大社周辺に無料で利用できる場所がいくつかあり、収容台数も多いので、通常であれば土日でも停める場所がないということは無いでしょう。 しかし、先述の神在月の期間や、正月、お盆、ゴールデンウィークなどの大型連休や観光シーズンの際は非常に混雑します。 上記期間に参拝・観光を検討される場合は、JR出雲市駅に隣接している一畑電車をご利用することをおすすめします。 島根県出雲大社紹介まとめ 島根県出雲大社について紹介させて頂きました。 出雲大社は非常に厳かで神秘的な雰囲気を持つ観光スポットです。 日本の古き良き文化を直に感じることが出来る神聖なスポット。 是非、島根観光に来た際は出雲大社に足を運んでみてはいかがでしょうか。

[Summer Camping] 12 Camping Essentials to Beat the Heat and Protect Against Insects! Safety Precautions for Japan's Hot Summers and Cool Campgrounds!Action & Adventure
Japan's Hot and Humid Summers Summer in Japan is hot and humid. When camping in Japan, it's essential to take measures against both the heat and insects. In this article, we'll introduce some recommended items to protect against the heat and keep insects away so you can enjoy an exciting summer camping trip in Japan. Video Introduction Photo：Women being bitten by bugs This video, titled "12 Recommended Items to Protect Against Heat and Insects When Summer Camping" (夏キャンプの暑さ対策・虫除け対策に買って良かったおすすめアイテム１２選をご紹介), was uploaded by "Camping Laboratory" (キャンプ研究). When camping in summer, preventing insect bites and heat stroke is crucial to enjoying a safe camping trip. There are many dangerous insects in Japan, and it's important to take all possible precautions. In addition, many people succumb to heat stroke and other health problems in Japan's hot and humid summers. If you take proper measures to protect yourself from insects and heat, you can avoid dangerous situations, so be sure to keep reading so you can be prepared. 6 Tips to Keep Bugs Away When Summer Camping in Japan The first item introduces is the "Fuji Nishiki Power Forest Incense," an insect repellant item that forestry professionals also recommend. As this is professional-grade, the thickness and size are quite different from those for general use. You can see how they're used in the video. [Video] 0:57 - 1. Fuji Nishiki Power Forest Incense Mosquito Repellent Source :YouTube screenshot The next item is bug spray. We recommend a skin-friendly, DEET-free insect repellent that is safe for children to use. The video recommends commercial insect repellent sprays, as homemade sprays made with ingredients such as peppermint don't last as long. [Video] 2:04 - 2. Insect Repellent DEET has long been used in insect repellents in Japan, but more and more parents are avoiding it when it comes to their children because of its side effects that can cause skin problems. It's also important to avoid exposing skin to insect bites as much as possible when summer camping. Leggings and pants that cover the skin are especially important to protect against bites. [Video] 2:58 - 3. Leggings Next, the "Yabu Mosquito Barrier" is a type of spray that is sprayed on the grass around your tent to create a barrier effect. [Video] 3:29 - 4.

Insect repelling LED lantern Taking advantage of the nature of insects to be attracted to ultraviolet rays, placing a lantern with built-in UV a slight distance from your camp prevents insects from being attracted to your campsite. Poison Remover is a useful first aid item for treating venomous insect stings. The syringe-like container allows pinpoint suction of the sting. [Video] 5:06 - 6. Poison Remover 6 Heat Protection Essentials for Summer Camping in Japan Photo：A portable fan The following items are recommended for protection against the heat when summer camping. Portable fans have clips and can be attached to car handles or tables and can also be used as stand-alone fans. [Video] 6:03 - 1.

A Bird's Eye View of Kagoshima This video, titled "Drone Footage of Amazing Islands in Kagoshima, Japan 4K (Ultra HD) - 鹿児島" gives an aerial view of Kagoshima's islands, taken by drone. It was released by "egawauemon." Are you looking for beautiful your next summer getaway? If so, then you came to the right place. In this article, we'll introduce tourist information and travel tips for those traveling to the islands of Kagoshima Prefecture! This video shows aerial views of the remote islands in Kagoshima prefecture, which are overflowing with natural beauty. There are six remote islands introduced in this video: Yakushima, Yoronjima, Tanegashima, Koshikijima, Kakeromajima, and Amami Oshima. The Best Remote Islands to Enjoy Water Sports! If you're looking to enjoy water sports and activities on a remote island in Kagoshima Prefecture, we recommend Yoronjima and Kakeromajima. Yoronjima is an island full of flowers and coral reefs. It has Terasaki Beach, which became famous as a location featured in the movie "Glasses" (めがね), and Yurigahama Beach, a pure white sandy beach that appears only during low tide. The sea is crystal clear, and in the summer months it's crowded with water sports enthusiasts. The main tourist attraction on Kakeromajima is the 300-year-old Indian coral tree trees that line the street near the beach. The bright red flowers on these trees bloom from May to June. There is also the beautiful beach Surihama, which is called the White Village. Water sports are very popular here. It's a small island, about 20 minutes by ferry from Amami Oshima, and the main spots on the island can be visited on a day trip. The Best Remote Islands to Enjoy the Ocean, Mountains and Villages! If you want to enjoy the beauty of the sea, mountains, and countryside of Kagoshima Prefecture, we recommend Koshikijima and Amami Oshima. There are many viewing points, such as a coastline with bizarre rock structures and the ruins of a village from the Edo period. We recommend going for a drive while looking out at the breathtaking scenery. Koshikijima is located just 50 minutes from Sendai Harbor (川内港) by high speed boat, and it's easily accessible from Kagoshima City, so a day trip to the island is possible. Amami Oshima is famous for its beautiful blue waters. The subtropical oceanic climate has led to the emergence of virgin forests, which are home to rare plant and animal species. The island is home to a wealth of rare flora and fauna, and you can even go on a canoeing adventure through a mangrove forest! Special Experience on Kagoshima's Islands If you're looking for a unique experience you wont find anywhere else, then we recommend Yakushima and Tanegashima. Yakushima was registered as a World Heritage Site in 1993, and trekking is very popular here. You can feel the mystical power of Yakushima by walking along popular routes, such as Shiratani Unsui Gorge. Yakushima also has hot springs, and the Hirauchi Kaichu Natural Onsen (hot springs), which emerge from the sea for just two hours before and after low tide, are a tourist attraction not to be missed! Tanegashima is famous as the birthplace of guns in Japan. A visit to Tanegashima Space Center, which sits at the forefront of space research and development, is another experience you don't want to overlook. Once You've Had Your Fill of the Remote Islands, It's Time to Grab a Bite to Eat! After visiting the islands of Kagoshima, you'll want to try some of the delicious food and go sightseeing in the area. There's delicious Berkshire pork, Japanese black (a Japanese cattle breed), and Shochu (Japanese liquor)! In the city center, you can buy souvenirs and enjoy delicious gourmet food, including Kagoshima ramen, satsuma-age (fried fish cakes), and kibinago (Silver-stripe round herring). Kagoshima was the birthplace of Saigo Takamori, and it is also home to many famous samurai residences and more. Take a trip to the area and learn about the history of Kagoshima!

Things a Beginner Outdoorsman Should Know Photo：Camping equipment Next, we'll go over some things that a beginner outdoorsman who will be camping for the first time should know. First of all, it's essential to prepare tools for camping, practice setting up a tent, and research the location where you'll be camping. Although this sounds obvious, beginners to camping should start by getting their tent and other equipment all ready to go. Research how much you need to spend to get started camping. After you have a complete set of equipment, what you don't want to do is spend so much time setting up your tent when you arrive that you have no time to enjoy the camping trip itself. After purchasing a tent, we recommend that you watch videos and practice setting up your tent. Camping is a great way to enjoy nature and it's not like staying in the city; there are dangers to be aware of. Care should be taken to avoid dangerous areas, such as cliff bottoms. In general, you should enjoy outdoor activities, such as camping, in a safe place. Depending on the weather, rivers may rise and other environmental disasters can occur. This is not limited to beginners in outdoor activities. You should gather necessary information on the weather and surrounding conditions to the best of your ability in advance. Summary If you're a beginner outdoorsman who is just starting to camp, be sure to refer to the video and learn the steps for setting up a tent. Whether or not you can enjoy camping will depend on whether or not you can set up your tent without hassle. In Japan, there are many attractive campgrounds where you can enjoy nature and explore the outdoors. There are many outdoor activities and camping experiences in Japan that you won't find in other parts of the world. We hope you have a great time camping in Japan!

The tent is secured with Snow Peak Solid Stakes and Boundless Voyage Titanium Peg Solid stakes using an MSR Stake Hammer to pound the stakes into place. As for sleeping gear, a NANGA AuroraLite 600DX sleeping bag and Therm-a-Rest NeoAir XTherm are great options! If you need a pillow, a MARCHWAY Inflatable Camping Pillow is recommended. For a night light, a BRISIE LED Lantern is waterproof, dustproof, and can also be used as a mobile battery. Must-Have Gear for Building a Fire Source :YouTube screenshot Next, we'll introduce gear for building a campfire that can fit in a backpack when solo camping. The first step in building a campfire is to chop kindling. The 38cm Husqvarna hatchet is a high-quality Swedish-made hatchet that is sharp and weighs just 600 grams. After chopping some wood, it's time to get a fire started. To build a fire, a Morakniv Mora Knife, SOTO Slide Gas Torch, and Conifer Cone Butterfly Saw are used. For easy fire starting, the match-shaped SOLSTICKAN FIRELIGHTERS are used as a handy igniter, and their combustion duration of 8 minutes makes it easy to ignite firewood. When the fire is about to be go out, a Bushcraft Fire Blaster (Sx) is used to keep it going. To protect your hands, use Tent-Mark Designs King Tongs and GRIP SWANY G-1 gloves. Solo Camping Gear for Cooking Source :YouTube screenshot The next solo camping gear we'll introduce is what to bring so you can enjoy cooking. This includes cooking utensils, etc. that can fit in a backpack. Camp food is an important part of the camping experience. The STC Picogrill 398 and the Boundless Voyage Titanium Fire Grill make the perfect cooking tables and are highly popular in Japan. The Snow Peak Aluminum Personal Cooker Set is easy to store! The set includes a frying pan and two shallow cookers. WILD-1 Brass Sierra Cups are also useful. After cooking up some delicious food it's time to relax. Relax and unwind with the SOTO Field Hopper ST-630 table and Helinox Tactical Chair, or enjoy a cup of freshly brewed, delicious coffee in a Snow Peak Ti-Single Cup. THE NORTH FACE Venture Jacket is great for any sudden rain that might occur.
