This blog is for family and friends, to share my feelings and photos with and for myself, to support my fading memory and improve my Japanese. I intend to do some writing in kanji, but am not getting very far without a Japanese computer. So for the moment I say "konnichi wa". Aisatsu dake - just saying hello.

Yufuin in Autumn

One sunny day in November I was invited to come along on a bus trip to Yufuin, a famous town for hot springs  in Oita prefecture. Rounding the bend after the last tunnel on the highway the local mountain, Yufu dake came in view with... a white cap. Snow! 

The autumn colors were amazing, and thanks to a less favorable weather forecast not too many tourists.

Capturing the kingfisher perched near the edge of the pond made it a perfect day.
