Up Mt Kongo

Posted 10th August 2018 • ArchivePrevious PostNext Post

Ok, so it's not quite Fuji san, but Kongo san is our local highest peak when we're in Japan, and amazingly we'd never been up before - until a few weeks ago. We took a cable car most of the way up, and we're not even sure if we reached the top or not, but it was a hoot. On the way home we dropped in on some well known local rice fields for the evening sun.

Large Cryptomeria shrine
Shrine gates near the top
Mostly sugi (Cryptomeria japonica) and hinoki (Chamaecyparis obtusa)
