Why don’t you take a photo of Mt.Fuji and canola flowers in cold January?
I’m Nobu, I like traveling overseas and in Japan, visited 25 countries. I’ve got the license of the certificate English guide in Japan for 8 years.
I show you hidden Japan which you have never seen and heard of!
I climbed Mt. Azuma in Kanagawa Prefecture.
It takes about an hour by train from Tokyo to get off at Ninomiya Station in Kanagawa Prefecture.
From there, it takes about 30 minutes on foot to reach the 136.2m summit.
It is a small hill, but the area around the top is a large park with a long slide, observatories , birds forest, grass field and it is beautifully maintained.
The name of the mountain is said to have originated from the lament of mythological hero Yamato Takeru.
He buried his wife who died in the ocean at the top of the mountain.
And he lamented, “Azuma haya!( oh my wife!).
There is a Azuma shrine on halfway up the mountain.
This shrine is dedicated to the princess.
The canola flowers bloom at the top of the mountain area from late January to early February.
The canola flowers watching events are held here.
There is an objet with the Ninomiya Town logo made of plants.
We can see Mt.Fuji, Tanzawa, and Mt. Oyama from the top of the mountain on a clear day.
Also we can see the Pacific Ocean too!
Mt.Fuji and canola flowers
I can see Mt. Fuji clearly this day.
There is a field of canola flowers at the top, where you can take a combination photo with Mt.Fuji!
It is the coldest time of the year in Japan, and it snowed in Tokyo the other day.
But you can take photos of canola flowers and Mt. Fuji in the middle of winter!
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
