Fall Photos


Leaves in Oirase Gorge

This weekend Julie and I hit the road to catch a glimpse at the fall foliage before the leaves all fell to the ground.  Our trip included stops at Mt. Hakkoda, Oirase Stream/Gorge, and Lake Towada.

We took a ropeway up to the top of Mt. Hakkoda. We missed the peak of the colors by a couple weeks but it was still amazing.

View from the tram.

View from the top of Mt. Hakkoda. In the distance is Mutsu Bay and Aomori City.

Another view from the top, this time facing inland.

After the mountain we took a stroll down to the Oirase Stream/Gorge.

Our last stop was Lake Towada, the deepest lake in Japan.

We also did a fair amount of driving on the trip.  Here’s a video of us careening through a mountain road looking at foliage and listening to Alphawezan.

    The colors are so similar to the ones here. Somebody just knocked at the door telling me how much they liked the roof. Weird.
