In mid January,
we had two days of snowfall on the mountains around Fukuoka.
So we quickly grabbed our cameras,
put on our hiking gear and set off to explore...
Ahum, it's not really exploring anymore as we know this place already so well...
...but the snow...... that's a Bonus.
These pictures tell the story.
Mt Raizan, the highest peak in this picture was our goal.
But first a pit-stop at and around the famous
Usually it takes me 2 hours to climb to the top of Mt Raizan.
The snow made it slow going: 2 hours and a half.
The scenery and atmosphere was awesome.
Lucky to have been able to start early AM, only a few other hikers had been there before.
Going down, the trail was already flattened by the many food-steps.
