Miho-san’s last hike in Japan for a while led us to Kumotoriyama. We met at 10:30 at Okutama station, taking the bus to the starting point of our hike. The first day turned out to be an easy stroll up a forest road. We stayed overnight at Sanjo-no-yu lodge, really with a hot bath in the mountains.
On Sunday, we set off early at 6:30, facing a steep incline. Discovering nature, we stopped frequently to take pictures of forest wonders. We arrived at the peak around 10 o’clock. After a picture stop we took another way down the mountain.
After lunch at Nanatsuishisan, we went straight back to Okutama lake, catching the bus back at 14:30. We went to an onsen at Kabe station before returning to Tokyo.
… that night, Germany won the FIFA world cup in Brazil 🙂
