Trip to Ise&Toba - First Day pics

Recent busy work doesn't allow me to update my English blog here... Japanese blog either though...
Early in November, I made the weekend trip with the gals !!!! Sounds fun, right ?
The location we visited are Ise and Toba cities. Ise is very famous city with a big shrine that is No.1 Shrine in Japan. Toba is the neighboring city to Ise. It is very nice place along the coast. Famous for ''Pearl farming''. The company '' Mikimoto'' is born in this place, also farmous for seafood catching by Ama Divers.
There are many Japanese Ryokan hotel (big and small). I have been there many times but really nice places. I highly recommend them.
Around 2 hours by train from Osaka and Nagoya.

1) Lunch at Ama Diver's house. The aged women  on the pics are actual Ama Divers and it is incrediable that they are still diving to catch ablone or clams etc. The oldest is near 80 years old. They are very fine and welcome to many visitors there and serve the Seafood BBQ. They appeared on the overseas TV shows and many foreign visitors come !

2) Small local shrine.

3) HOTELS we started at

Majolica majorca - MajoRomantica Perfume

Last week, I met this lovely staff and fell in love with this Sweet and Romantic Fragrance.

The bottle is unique shape and really good on me. It is NOT spray type. I am not good at SPRAY Type and the fragrance shower makes my nose itchy and causes sneezing. So, I like something good smell but the strong perfume is not so my favorite.
But but... this looks perfect !!! I haven't seen this type of bottle before in perfumes. Don't you think ???

With the black plastic swab applicator, the scent syrup can be put on the skin directly.

More than this great bottle, actually the sweet scent was really tempting at the shop !!!  It is like a PERFECT, I can say.
I really want to share its smell, fruity and a little bit citrus at the beginning, and move to a little more flower and finally settle down to the sweet like Vanilla. Sweet&Romantic, very Majolica Majorca's fragrance !!!

Majolica majorca is the Japanese drugstore cosmetic brands by SHISEIDO.

They have some shops in HK or Singapore, Taiwan etc. I didn't know this fact until today... amazing ! The concept or package is a little too sweet and lovely on me... but they have many good-quality items. My recommendation is Liquid Eyeliners. If you meet this cosmetics somewhere, please check them out ;-D
