“Pia’s Postcards” Embraces The Silent Wonders Of Saga In Japan


Pia Wurtzbach returns to Japan to embark on yet another remarkable adventure on the second season of “Pia’s Postcards,” this time exploring a fragment of the land of the rising sun’s quiet countryside—Saga.

The beauty queen helps shine the spotlight on the small prefecture in Kyushu, most famous for being the so-called origin of ceramics in Japan, and for its hot springs. People who are looking to retreat a little from the hustle and bustle of the city life and who generally prefer a more low-key destination may just find comfort in this place.

Join Pia as she visits Cat Café Coron, a charming café which shelters rescued cats, all of which are available for adoption. She also tries her hand in ceramics making, even painting one herself, as well as dropping by Takezaki Fish Port and The Floating Torii Gate of Ouo Shine, which stands on a shallow area of the ocean in Tara-cho.

The lovely host also stops by Hirakawaya, a place popular for its Onsen Yudofu (onsen tofu), a Japanese tofu hot pot boiled with hot spring water that’s a known specialty of the Ureshino Onsen area. She also digs in on some tofu ice cream for the very first time.

The trip also takes Queen P to her very first hot air balloon ride, an experience that gives her a peek into where the largest international hot air balloon competition in Asia—the Saga International Balloon Fiesta—is being held, usually in late October to early November of every year.

Now on its 2nd season, “Pia’s Postcards” has brought the country’s third Miss Universe across fascinating local and foreign destinations where she immerses herself in the wonderful culture of the places she visits. She has previously reveled in Philippine festivals such as the Pahiyas in Quezon and Higalaay in Cagayan de Oro, as well as witnessed the mesmerizing Jinhae Gunhangje Cherry Blossom Festival in South Korea.

Conquer your travel goals this 2020 starting with the captivating natural marvels and artistry of Saga in “Pia’s Postcards,” airing this Sunday (January 19) on Metro Channel, iWant and Metro.Style’s YouTube channel.
