    Ausblick zum Frühstück

    June 19 in Japan

    Einen deprimierenden Regentag hinter mir, konnte ich mein Glück heute morgen kaum fassen, als die Sonne mich freudestrahlend begrüßte. Und auch Mount Fuji gab sich die Ehre. Da kann ich garnicht anders, als noch einen Tag hier zu bleiben.

    Heute Nachmittag bin ich dann ne Runde im sogenannten "Suicide Forest" spazieren gegangen. Einsame Wege, gruselige Geräusche von Raben und lauten Grillen und die Aussicht auf wilde Bären zu stoßen, ließen mich den tollen Ausblick auf dem Gipfel des Hügels noch ein wenig mehr genießen.Read more

    For today our host Yumi invited on her free day to drive around her town with her car to see several highlights of the region.

    Starting with the Sengen Jinja shrine, we got to see a very big and impressive areal of religious buildings and artifacts as well as the official starting point to a multi day walk up to the top of Mt. Fuji.

    Nowadays you can also drive up half the way with a shuttle bus so that you can make it up and down in one day. But in earlier years one big gate on this areal marked the beginning of a trail which does still exist today and, as we got told, once a year is used for a marathon for people running up to the top in only a couple of hours.

    Lava tree molds

    July 10, 2017 in Japan

    Next on the list of (free) attractions came a place with caves as our host Youmi described it. I could hardly believe that in a former vulcanic area would be caves but these ones were indeed very special!

    They have been formed by the lava coming from Mt Fuji a few hundred years ago down the valley, wrapping around thee trees growing there.

    And while the trees burned down, the lava got stuck in the shapes of the trees and once cooled down, left those "worm holes" behind which were just about wide enough to climb through.

    Arakurayama Sengen Park

    July 10, 2017 in Japan

    For lunch time we headed towards a super market in town, bought us some good food for take away and brought it up with us to a mountain terrace & park area with one of the most famous picture motives of Japan.

    Usually this picture with the red tower in front of Mt Fuji is seen either in the winter time when the trees are covered in snow or in spring time when the cherry blossom is out.

    Anyways, we got still a good view, had a relaxed lunch in the shade and enjoyed the place a lot!
