February Sojourns part 2, Mt Raizan and early blooming sakura

Hiking Mt Raizan in Itoshima, Fukuoka.

  Still wintery and cold but the weather forecast was good 
so no excuse not to go.
We parked at this spacious car-park, what is more or less at the end of the road.
And it has a super clean toilet.
Hey, this is Japan.

 Start of the trail.

 Last water-fill station.

Fresh frost (frozen mist) on the branches.

At the top, time for a hot cuppa.

 Ouch, part of this mountain road got washed away.
But repairs are being made.. it looks like a few-weeks job.

Raizan is famous for Sennyojin Temple and its amazing garden.
A must visit.

Spring is around the corner.. early sakura blooming.

"kawatsu sakura"

 Fukuoka Tower is peeping from underneath.
