グンマー! Mt. Myogi ~ Hanamigahara Camp site

We reached to Mt. Myogi around lunch time, start to wondering around which beginner courses to try. They have tourist information kiosk at michno-eki parking lot in front of Myogi Shrine. We obtained a map.
We took the easiest route, Chukan dou (The middle road)

Kawakami dog kept in the Nakanodake Shrine

Even the easiest route, Myogi mountain trails was tough. We are glad we wore climbing shoes this time.

We left Myogi, hit road around 14:00, bound for Hanami gahara camp ground, in the other side of Akagi mountains.
The place was spacious and quiet, with clean shower and toilet.
We would visit here again Only if they lift their rule of no dog. There is no such an option for us  leaving our family member behind for any trip, so we do not visit here again.

The administrator guy was nice enough letting her in, since the weekend barely had other campers.
He even gave me Oyaki, which is regional cuisine pan cake.
On the other hand, they charged tent AND a turp. 860 yen each. 
So, that made their price chart attached with hidden rules. That annoyed me.

That's ok. We do not pay a dime to any business refusing our family. So no next time.

We tried to climb up Kurobi dake, but the bamboo were out growing and hindering our sight though the path. Since the visibility was low, and the ground condition were muddy, we decided to put off the climbing endeavor to the next time. 

We stopped by Hokkitsu Onsen in Shibukawa on the way to come back home.
We enjoyed nice, cozy regional outdoor onsen here. The hot water was a bit salty. The warmth of my body last long time.
Above  all, this place do not have any of those obnoxious and mean sign saying no tattoo. GREAT!!!

As a little souvenir, I got myself a Gunmaa character wallet. 
I intend to use this for my ear bud holder.

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
