Mountain’s Blush

nagatoro 2 nagatoro 3 nagatoro 1

with plum blossom season still in full swing, i headed out to the popular plum grove atop hodo-san in nagatoro.  it took more than an hour’s drive and a 3km hike up a steep trail, but the view was more than worth the journey.  from the peak, one could see the city of chichibu in the valley below and across to bukou-zan standing stoically on the other side.

right below where i stood, the plum blossoms covered the steep slopes in various shades of pink.  it was as if a demure blush was stealing across the face of the mountain.
