Mt. Takao and Ura Takao Area (March 21st)


The view from the top of Mt. Takao.
It was a little bit hazy but we could see Mt. Fuji.

Today we went to Mt. Takao. There were lots of people visiting there. Violets were starting to bloom. On the way back to the Takao Station from Ja-taki-guchi, we wanted to check the place where some Viola yezoensis f. discolor (Takao Sumire) plants grow, but some stupid Obasans were stepping on the spot and destroying the plants!! I was pretty shocked. How could some people be so stupid! Their guide didn't even care about it, it seemed... Pretty sad.
