So I am fairly certain that this is the most beautiful place we have visited so far, at least from a scenic viewpoint. Yes the bright lights of Tokyo and the geishas of Kyoto had their own appeal, but I love the mountainside city here.  I have taken more pictures here than all the other cities combine I am fairly sure… (which makes me think that the offers to buy old digital cameras off certain travellers might be worth a second thought afterall!)

Going up the mountain was fun, though slightly tiring. But the views were entirely worth it. Being up in the clouds, literally, was slightly surreal.  : )  I certainly love this place.  I almost regret that we are already leaving here for Hiroshima today!

    I’m so glad to hear that you are seeing and experiencing these wonderful things. My trips to Japan are filled with beautiful visions and memories, and it sounds like you are seeing much more. Enjoy and treasure!

    I am having a wonderful experience! Today in Hiroshima we saw the Peace Museum… which was moving, depressing, and so inspiring all at the same time. And then, for an awkward contrast, we walked down Hon-dori, a covered arcade of shops, lights, and Akihabara-reminiscent scenes. And since there is a festival going on, we also walked past game booths, tons of women in kimonos, and vendors of every type of food imaginable on a stick. I shopped quite a bit, had a ton of fun, and ate more than I thought my stomach could hold : )
