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.

Mt. Kuju area in the first week of July

First morning light at my usual spot. We left earlier, hoping for a colorful sunrise...

Missed it again :-(  

 Later we hiked up to the bogatsuru view point and passed several interesting pants and flowers. The camera had to stay behind, so it's mostly smartphone quality  ;-)

Starting off with Teriha Akashouma, テリハアカショウマ

At Amaga Ike, 雨ヶ池: Colicroots, (Sokushinran)  ソクシンラン (Nebarinogiran) ネバリノギラン

Toothed Ixeridium, (Nigana)  ニガナ
