Shosenkyo w/ Seven Hills Adventure

I participated on the Seven Hills Adventure tour again, for Shousenkyo, Yamanashi Prefecture.
Their blog post is available in Japanese. 



Although the tour leader got lost twice in the mountain, the weather was perfect and view from the top of the rocky mountain was amazing. 

It was supposed to be winery visit after running. However, I did not like any of those Japanese red wines that tasted too young.



 Since the mountain is famous for crystal mine, one of the top hil is totally white sand beach.

The south Alpse is reveals its total figure from the top of the mountain.

It is nice to have running folks to get informed/motivated, but I really don't get along with conservative dudes, who think I should be acting like a commodity of my husband and should be one of those helicopter wife of him, so this would be the last time I would participate on this trail running tour.







 Nonetheless, since the place is awesome, I visited there again April 8th, two weeks later with my family.

The narrow path along the stream of water will be closed down between high season May to Nov for sightseeing horse carrier and micro bus. So if you love silent walk along the river, April is the best.

Asahina Path, with family (husband, black dog and white dog)

This was the training walk and car ride for our new puppy who still suffers motion sickness in the car. Due to the damage from the typhoon in September 2019, the path was filled with fallen trees. We could managed to reach Kumano shrine, but we would recommend all visitors to wear hiking shoes. The puppy enjoyed the path, though.  waiting for young brother...

3 hours: short hiking for my senior sister dog: San-No-To (三の塔、犬のため)

Summary: Hi, people. Please keep a leash on your dog. That's the way in Japan now. My long time running pal, Tomoe the Kishu dog has been depressed for a while, and has been stressed out, because of the introduction of this puppy to our household. To make her feel better, I decided to have a short hiking trip of only 3 hours solely  for her. Not with the Kishu & Kai mix boy puppy above, since he is too young, and vaccination to prepare for mountain hike has not completed yet. We arrived Yabitsu peak parking lot at 7:00 AM. I could not take photos, but on the way driving up there, the morning sunshine shed between trees is so beautiful and breathtaking.  I thought we should have come over an hour earlier, so that we can see the sunrise in the course instead. The most popular course in Tanzawa "Omote ridge line" is still covered with snow, so crampons are absolutely needed. Yabitsu Peak From the San-no-tou The public bathrooms in the beg
