Yep, it's that time of the year again.
Persimmon drying in the cockpit.
What a great All Weather (& all things) Shelter Alishan has!
But Persimmon Season also equals Mountain Season, so.....
With buddy runners/hikers Noriko and Ohara san,
it's time for an other dash Into the Heart of Kyushu.
Nope, this peak ain't our goal...but if you know the kanji for mountain...
you can see where it comes from.
In the middle, far-far distance....That's the One.
Perfect weather, aren't we lucky!
....a bit more to go....
Looking back...yep, that was a steep climb...
Well, we made it. Time for a rest,
...some good food...
...and time to enjoy the scenery: The Jewel of Kyushu.
It was worth it.
See you again next year.
Closer to Home
West side of Fukuoka: Immajuku.
The Island in the far distance, just right of center, is Genkai Shima. It's smack in the middle of the entrance to Fukuoka Bay. Basically the waters you see here is where Fu Kyo the Cat cruises around for Sunset Sailing.
A view further to the West.
Mr Spider has a message for Fukuoka.
A distance view of that Great City Fukuoka.
If you know where to look...you can see Alishan!!
Nice trail running just around the corner from our place.
