Can you see the two guys?
How did they get there!?
Here is the Dicentra peregrina (Komakusa) area on the way to Mt. Ioudake, which was hidden in the clouds in the morning.

On the way to Mt. Ioudake from the hut we stayed last night.
There are piles of rocks to guide the hikers, which was barely visible on Friday with strong wind and rain!

It was pretty small place but nice and quiet.
The water was fresh and tasty!
