  • People sometimes called foliage season, was tough. Parked in the parking lot was full, but exactly now, lucky (always like). I want to go next in the season of the fresh green.

  • Through several tunnels from Yoshino launched South of highway 169, and 19.5 km up Route 40 from the turning point arrives at Mt. odaigahara parking. Road closed in winter, except when at mountain high, as well as views of stars and sunrise to go. Seems to change according to season and time has launched about an hour from (seasonal operation NARA Kotsu Bus for about two hours). But seems that overflow parking or congestion, the autumn holidays. Elevation of the parking is 1573.1 m. Sunrise mountain is 1695.1 m, climbing, not just turns around and around, well maintained road, even for beginners. Fall trees in Typhoon isewan in 1959 (0/1959) (5915), also deer, animal predation and acid rain had turned the desolate landscape of dead wood and bamboo. I would take much further before returning to Yakushima "Mononoke forest". Might be good to people who are interested in lichens and bryophytes, MOSS sightseeing routes, MOSS could look pretty even "middle way". Passed the route 309 on the way back. Open mouth Wasa and tunnel to the junction of highway 169 and County Road No. 40 line. Tunnel to 169 from 309 metro lines stop, just a few minutes. A little detour to the Tianhe, Yoshi Ueno City to go through and thought it... Now Yoshino highways and byways is an impressive road tunnel is ready, 309 lines only in tunnel of the performer in the MT and narrow mountain roads are not opposed to run endlessly. First of all went safely through. I regret I wasn't. By ring seems to be read and gaouja collar. In the Omine mountain system contains the highest 8 over mountain of Nara Prefecture, Kinki (1915.2 m) is like a sacred place of Shugendo, well visible from the odaigahara plateau next to it both interesting area.
