Mt. Ontake (2)

More from Mt. Ontake. I’m really looking forward to hiking up in winter and exploring the nearby villages a lot more. I image it looks wonderful in the snow. I know it does from Inuyama, where I live, nearly 100kms away on crisp winter days.

御嶽山 冬に御嶽山でハイキングや近くの村を探検する事を楽しみにしています。雪の中の御嶽山はきっと奇麗。自分が住んでいるところ、100キロも離れている犬山市から見える冬の御嶽山は間違いなく美しい。山を本当に尊敬しています。

Shikoku

Shikoku is probably my favourite place in Japan. It’s the first place I lived permanently in Japan, it’s fantastic for cycling, the people are wonderful, it’s home to the best festival I’ve ever been too, which I went to again this year, but I worry.

What happened in Tohoku in 2011 is predicted to happen again. In fact it is predicted for the whole Pacific Coast of Japan, including Shima and Minami Ise which I visited recently.

Despite the paranoia it’s a place I can’t imagine not revisiting again and again and one day moving back to.
