Ohira san 太平山

I took the last week of my holiday to do some hiking with my friends. We went up to one of the mountains called Ohira san太平山 near my place. The view is —-stunning!

Japanese people like to write their wishes on the locks and put them on the fence.Image

A resting placeImage

Heaps of different trails on the mountain for you to try. This one is 170m long. Wanna try?Image

After walking hundreds of steps up….Image

You will get here! Image

I was surprised as this is the first time I saw someone playing hang-gliding in Japan! I thought Japanese people aren’t into sports, especially this kind which may be too breathtaking for them.Image

Fireworks!

As I said 2 weeks ago, the odds that you will bump into a festival when you come to Japan in summer are quite high. One of them is fireworks shows. There are fireworks shows in almost every town in Japan over the summer holiday period between June and August. Wanna play fireworks yourself instead of watching? Unlike many other countries, it is legal to play with fireworks in Japan. It also explains why you will see shops put out loads of fireworks products in this time.
