Mazukari Ridge, Hinohara (April 12th)

Cherry blossom near the Fussawa waterfall.

We went to hike on the Mazukari ridge from Hinohara village. We saw some patches of Shortia uniflora (Iwa Uchiwa) last year and this time we could also find them with much more flowers. They seem to like to grow on the dangerous cliff, so it was hard to take the pictures.
