Goblin of the Mountain

With the arrival of family members from the US, we visited a seaside city previously known as “Japan’s Wall Street,” or so I’m told.  Thankful for a beautiful day, we went up one of the surrounding mountains by cable car; the view of the underlying city and harbor with surrounding mountains in the midst of fall’s orange foliage was spectacular.  Did I mention the beautiful weather?

Afterwards, we went down to the seaside and visited an old fishermen’s dormitory next to a lighthouse.  We even got to play dress up in old fishermen/women’s costumes.  The view from the lighthouse, while different to the mountains earlier, was equally beautiful, especially in the setting of watching the sun set.

This day trip certainly was all about the earth and mountains and “the views.”
