Monday 11 October was Sports Day in Japan and my neighbour, Yoko, organised a short hike in the mountains north of Kyoto. We took the bus up there and hiked for a few hours. The trail ended at a nice little forest center with BBQ pits and hammocks along the river. The hike wasn’t particularly strenuous but very beautiful. I was hoping to see some big wildlife but we saw lots of little wildlife!
At some points the trail got narrow and steep.
And it was a fun group!
