We went to see autumn Hakone, colored leaves of Izu on the night of Sunday, November 24.
I leave Odawara by car at about half past 8 a.m. and get on the Seisho bypass.
We intend to see by car here and there, but weather is calm at all, and it is ideal day for holiday making fantastically today. The waves of the shore are slow and gentle too.
Ten mountain passes
I advance to the Hakone turnpike, and it is arrived at the Hakone broad perspective mountain by Seisho bypass. Because Mount Fuji looked big fantastically neatly, I am going to enter the parking lot to take a photograph, but aim at reconciliation Izu Skyline by congestion.
A drive-in is seen on the left as soon as I entered Izu skyline. There are “Jyukkoku mountain pass cable cars” there. I decide to rise to the top by cable car this time.
Seeing from bottom, it is such a feeling. Still, the sky is blue today!
This is the feeling when you are in the cable car, and maybe it can only take up to15 people.
Steep grade that does not come when we look back toward the back that we aim at the mountaintop and climb.
Besides, Mishima, Numazu, we can see Gulf of Suruga over there. It is said that the origin of Jyukkoku-touge mountain passes is because from the top of the mountain, ten countries can be seen. Because it is an old country even if I say ten countries (that a country of Sagami such as the country of Suruga), it is different from the country in the present world.
It is top where we arrived at! The view is great, and must-see!
This building is the rest house and a stand, but the nothing really sold there I need to buy, but the view is a panorama of 360 degrees.
It is Mount Fuji which we saw from the mountaintop. The sky is a little bit cloudy because of the weather, but I was glad to see magnificent Mount Fuji.
Mount Fuji is always good! The best!
I can look around all directions from the mountaintop, but this photograph is the Manazuru peninsula on the east under eyes.
I went there for fishing sometimes. Because fishing is possible in this sea, you can come here fishing in your spare time. ?
This is today’s destination, “Niji No Sato (means the homeland of rainbow)” in Shuzenji, Izu I buy a souvenir at the stand of the foot, and to aim next. I was expecting to see 2,000 maples (maple) planted here.
To get to the destination via Izu-Skyline my require 30 minutes. Or need more times.
The road is really comfortable to drive.
There are such backroad and mountain path on the way, too. We advance while seeing colored leaves.
Niji No Sato
At last it is “Niji No Sato” where we arrived at.
Tourist of “maple-tree viewing” came by privately-owned car and sightseeing bus in others in great numbers on the way.
There seems to be colored leaves famous place in these outskirts everywhere. Another place will do introduction stripe at the next opportunity, too.
It is colored leaf of the neighborhood of entrance. Contrast with blue sky is beautiful. Ticket center is on the right. Parking lot was considerably large, and a great number of people came by sightseeing bus.
We entered, and there was this locomotive immediately. It is slightly tight, but seems to be pleased with child so that adult gets on even if we say locomotive.
It is colored leaf of guide. When the sun proves right, bright red leaf glitters.
Walk in the beautiful colored leaves is such deluxe experience.
There are colored leaves everywhere. There were a lot of couples, too.
There a shops where you can borrow costume play clothes and take pictures.
Colored leaves around Japanese garden. Japanese garden was theme here.
Japanese garden is beautiful.
Locomotive which we introduced in the beginning runs in garden.
Many children get on.
Joren no Taki Waterfall
I watched it with wonderful colored leaves of “Niji No Sato” of magnificent scenery, Shuzenji of “jyukkoku mountain passes” of Hakone, but “the waterfall of Jyoren” of the Amagi hot water Jyogajima island in today’s last.
When autumn colors were clean, we expected here, but result did not have many colored leaves.
However, it was roaring, and heroic waterfall made a sound and ran.
It is entrance of waterfall.
It becomes large parking lot, and sightseeing bus stops last time, too.
We go down from center part to lower (river).
We go down such a steep stairs. Return seems to be somewhat hard.
But because I want to watch the waterfall, so I went down. Return was hard as expected.
Is drop around 30m? Will there be around 50m?
Scale is not that good, but we will say form, or we will say figure or see plenty and meet, and there is. There was largeheartedness all right and felt that it was very good.
There was the figure of the tourist who did char and Satsukimasu salmon fishing here and there near.
I was able to introduce to everybody of these three places, but want to introduce more famous places on the next time.
