Western Australia?

While it is true that most of Australia's population is on the east coast, (around 95%) there is one big city on the West coast, Perth (1.9 mil pop). In fact my brother lives there. It is a very nice city, very peaceful and quiet compared to a lot of other places.

But the most interesting things to see are outside the city itself. There are not a lot of people in the countryside (mostly farms) but there are a lot of interesting natural rock formations, such as the pinnacles and wave rock.

One place you must see is the resort town of Monkey Mia. I have no idea why it has such a strange name, there are no monkeys there, but there are a lot of dolphins. These friendly mammals will swim right up to you if you are lucky. They have been coming into the beach to say hello to people for more than 50 years now.

So even though Western Australia might not be the busiest place in the country it still has many interesting things to see and do.


  1. I wanna go to Australia!!!!!!!!

    Is there little Tokyo in sydney?
    Are there a lot of Japanese people?


  2. Adelaide has a 'Little Tokyo' & Darwin has a 'Japan Town'. Sydney? Not really...
    The suburb of Artarmon in Sydney has a large Japanese population and more than a few Japanese restaurants and supermarkets.

    Also the Gold Coast & Surfers Paradise (in Queensland) are popular places for tourists so there are always lots of Japanese people there on holiday.


  3. Oh, Perth. I have heard of a name of the city before. Wave rock is awesome! I don't know about Monkey Mia, but it looks a fun place for sightseeing. By the way, I would like to know something popular now in Australia as well as France and America. I mean, I am asking about recent fashion or trend.

  4. Popular stuff from abroad. OK Masa we will do our best. It can be a little difficult for us now as we spend so much time in Japan but I'm sure we have more than a few good ideas. Look for future posts!
