Very few green could be seen in this area of this highland on that day. So when we saw the white of snow on the hillside, we were a little bit refreshed on this rocky field.
It would take eight hours to go through the peak of Mt. Tokachidake and Mt. Biei-dake, considering my wife's pace of stepping forward.
What would you respond to such a scenery ? The time for trekking is limited. Night trekking is a little bit dangerous for novices.
Without this sign, trekkers may be annoyed by anxiety on the trail. It might be the sign of civilization as well as the trail.
If we had got a fine view on the trail to the peak of Mt. Bieidake, my wife might have been scared by the height of the place we stepped forward.
Normally, signs of arrow show the way to the peak and the entrance of the trail. It seemed to be difficult to paint the sign of arrows on the ground of the volcano.
Stepping down from the peak of Mt. Tokachidake, we enter a comparatively flat field of rocks on the highland.
Looking back at the peak of Mt. Tokachidake we conquered, we got down the trail from the peak to another peak.
My wife decided to step forward. I mean she decided to go to another peak of the mountain adjacent to Mt. Tokachidake.
