鍋割山 Nabewari Mt. with coworkers

This was the first time to climb up mountain with others.

I thought it was too late in the season, but leaves are perfectly dyed into autumn color on the tree.



First time to use alcohol stove in mountain. I had added water to the bag of dried noodle in that morning, so the noodle had already gotten soft. All I had to do was to heat up the soup, but I apparently didn't bring enough alcohol and had to eat lukewarm soup. Next time I should bring more than 50 ml. 

This is the content of my backpack.

This time, I was with Aisu the black dog. He was such a spoiled dog who whined and barked when I was using bathroom, but mostly ok for climbing.


No, it is not mine. My collogue made a plum soup noodle (udon) that looked really yummy!

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

Southern (Omote) Tanzawa without dog 表丹沢(ソロ&犬なし)

Summary. Nice pace climbing up, though failed for my ill-planned route coming back. I arrived at Shibusawa sta. 6:45 am, and the line of the people who were waiting for the first bus to Ookura stop, the entrance to the hiking route, was quite long already. At the Ookura stop, there was a Caucasian guy who seemed to be inquisitively looking at hiking registration post and its card ... written in Japanese only.  So I helped him to submit hiking registration. The city of Hadano should also place a multilingual hiker registration form. The town around Ookura bus stop The route I took was starting from the  prefectural forest park . The route is well managed and paved alongside the river. Most of the people I rode with bus apparently used another major path to To no dake. So the path was quiet. Other than the odd entrance to open the netted door for deer to get in, the route reminded me of walking down Yarisawa last year. The path to climb up to Nabewari mountain was quit
