  • It is a mountain seen from the Interior of the Shinkansen. In cement mine a little painful at the foot of mountains so its appearance compared to the surrounding mountains, and particularly bird's-eye looks guards protect the barrier of Sekigahara as well. It is a mountain can figure is wearing a snow mountain located just in the winter to see and feel a pair of changes of the seasons soon.

  • Cloud one not sunny may weekend went. On the climbing Mountain boom, is full of people who got fired up the whole mountain style did the Summit. If you just be honest... driveway came from athletic shoes are OK depending on the weather was a much easier way. However, better care Summit really is no shade so slippery hot days and rainy days are good may be. Is the stamp of the mountains to climb in (and the slightly somber mood), Summit partly filled with souvenir shops and restaurants, were filled with people, or even cup noodles Hot bleed as mountain youth. The yokels. I'd like to go off this time. It will clear sunny days, I'm sure clean snow.
