Search for Honshu Peak

For my March vacation, I originally thought of flying away from all the coldness of Tokyo to a place warm and exotic like Vietnam, Laos, and/or Cambodia.

Then I remembered it’s recession time so I decided to save some money and stay in Japan. My press release will say “I need to watch my carbon footprint” to appear smart and environmentally responsible.

I also realized I have already explored every nook and cranny of Kyushu but not yet of Honshu, where I’m now based. I also remembered how much I loved mountains, volcanoes, falls, forests, and big bodies of water. My favorite so far is Kagoshima’s Kirishima, with its beautiful craters and amazing peaks. Kaimon, also in Kagoshima, comes a distant second.

The places I’ve hiked/trekked in Honshu were nice as well though I still felt Honshu has more to offer. Takao is too close to Tokyo and the peak is very anti-climactic. Mitake has a wonderful rock garden though I think that’s it. Okutama is too close to a dam to even feel remote.

Mt. Fuji you say? I don’t know anybody who enjoyed climbing Mt. Fuji. Enough said.

  2. I don’t know about mountain climbing (that’s too difficult) but hiking/trekking, i do love it. I love being surrounded by trees. I love the smell and the feeling too. 😀
