Takao-san Redux

Golden Week officially began last Friday, which meant it was the perfect time for an impromptu one-day excursion to nearby Takao-san with the lovely Becca.

Mercifully there were not nearly as many people on the mountain as the last time I was there – so far Golden Week this year seems a lot more subdued than normal, probably as a result of all that transpired in the last couple of months.

I actually didn’t take many photos of the mountain itself, probably because we were too busy stuffing our faces with yummy homemade avocado sammiches and talking to mascara-and-origami-sombrero-wearing finger puppets in a French accent.

(Because obviously that is what one does when one climbs mountains in Japan, people.)

A few more random pictures after the jump.

That’s it for now. Thankfully, vacation is at last upon us which means I might finally find some time to updated with a longer post and try to catch up on life… Stay tuned.

    Some gorgeous photos (as usual).
    Also, glad to see other people appreciate the delicious goodness that is avocado sandwiches!
    Hope things are less hectic now.
