Welcome to “Iyashi” “Nagomi” secret spot and sightseeing in countryside of Japan !
Hi ! How have you been ?
Here in Japan, we enjoy spending ” Golden week ” (5-9 consecutive holidays)
with my family, relatives, and friends !
Especially around this time of the year, I like to climb Mt.Ichifusa which is our holy
mountain in this area.
Great scenery, fantastic atmosphere, moderate exercise makes me feel better !
The start point is here.
A ” Torii “gate.
This is a gateway which means a border of sacred place from this world.
Now is the time to embark on a great adventure !
Irregular steep staircase… It’s slippy.
But it’s just beginning.
What’s this ?
How tall is this HUGE tree ? 40m high ?
The name is ” Ichifusa ceder wood ” which is more than 800 years old !
This is the ” twins tree ”
How curious ! Have you ever seen this kind of style trees ?
Let’s across a stream
listening pleasant stream sounds…
Keep walking, walking, walking.
A hole ? A nest of squirrels or something ?
That’s amazing and wondering !
Please someone tells me what it is.
In the meantime, I can see a object lies down over there.
A big tree is dead !
What happened ? Uproot a tree by a storm or whirlwind ?
Only this tree ? … I got it !
A wild boar attacked it. Unbelievable !
I’m little confusing but final steps come in sight.
I go up step by step very carefully.
And finally I managed to reach ” Ichifusa-shrine ”
Of course, this is a ” Japan Heritage “, which locates highest place in this kuma county.
I made it !
