[Amaya Travels] Okutama, Japan

Taking a break from all the Tokyo photos to remember another part of Japan I visited! I was very lucky to have friends in Japan who planned to have this trip to Okutama. I actually only know one person out of the whole group of 10+ people, so I was really glad I warmed up to everyone!

Good weather from the really long train ride

Self-introduction time!
There were a few trails we embarked on, the first two before lunch being the more relaxed ones.

Halfway through the walk, we passed by a damn that was free for public viewing! Down the stairs we go~

Yay for rainbows!
And more wonderful scenery~

Aaaaand lunch!

Grate your own wasabi~!

Queues can get really long in this place because it is really -the only- place you can get lunch once up in the mountains.

And more walking~! The sunlight really filtered nicely between the trees, appreciating  木漏れ日(komorebi)~

Metal benches along the way for some breaks if you needed~

As the walk progressed, most steps were just make-shift ones cut into rock XD

Autumn foliage is so pretty!
Chanced upon a shrine

View from one of the higher points we reached!
Also walked through some part of Okutama town before running after the train!

Had to walk into this shop selling wasabi lol

To celebrate, we had a really fantastic dinner of fried chicken and other dishes. No pictures because we were all just really hungry by the end of it XD You would be too, if you had to climb stairs like these:

No kidding on the incline.
