At the beginning of May, during Golden week (a week full of holidays), we took the train about 2 hours away to climb Mt. Mitake.
The countryside is so beautiful.
My picture loader put all the pictures in backwards, so this post shall go backward in time. After we climbed the mountain, we came down and played in the Tama River.
This lady was boarding down the river, and you can see a flipped kayak in front of her. There were also rafters.
What could these folks be reading that would keep them from looking at this view?
We had to climb a ridiculous number of stairs to get to this temple. At least 400.
