After the destructive power of Tyhoon Yolanda, I decided to push through with my plan to join a hiking event to Mt. Higashi Otafuku in Hyogo Prefecture Japan.
Most trail here in Japan are converted into concrete stairs so we were really happy about the trail we took. A little bit more rugged. 🙂
This is the mountain that we are supposed to go to.
I guess we have reached the “stone trail”. Good luck to us.
And so it begun.
I could not believe I just climb this one.
But we are not yet done. We have to get into that little space in between the rocks to get to the top.
The view that was waiting for us.
You thought we are done? Of course not. We still have a long way to go. We walked for more than 30 minutes till we were at a small clearing where all the hikers where taking a break and having lunch.
After a short lunch we move on but along the way we decided to change our course and instead of going all the way to the bus stop on the other side of the mountain and take the bus going back to the city, we opted to walk back. But first we have to find one more location called “Somewhere” 🙂
We found “Somewhere”.
I was glad I decided to join. It took my mind off the recent disaster and gave me some time to enjoy Nature and of course the company was great.
This is the trail we followed, sorry only in Japanese.
