It was so beautiful day !
We drove to Lake Shikotsuand the mountains shown above !
Can you see the peak like a table ?
that is the lava dome in the crater of Mt. Tarumae.
We had to wait for an hour to enter the parking site at the entrance of the trail. Seeing the long line of cars waiting for their turn to enter this area, my wife was weeping and expecting two hour before parking our car.
Fortunately, we could start trekking at 10:20 in the morning. I did not expect to stroll for six and half hours under the strong sunshine;)
