May 20th, we had "Japanese traditional cooking experience" in our lounge room!
This time, we cook "Ohagi".

Ohagi is a rice cake covered with bean jam or soybean flour, or sesame and salt,
not like "mochi (rice cake)", ohagi is half-smashed rice cake.
It is easier than cooking Mochi.

First, we grain sesame!
It is really hard work!




Then smashed rice to make them little bit sticky!




Roll them to ball, roll into the soybean flour or sesame powder!





Looking very good!




Right now, Sumo wrestling match is on!
Eating Ohagi and watching sumo, very Japanese!

Hello!
こんにちは!

The one of the best seasons for trekking just came!
It is nice to trek on the natural trail around Mt.Fuji area in Spring.
There are many fascinating trails among Mt.Fuji and Fuji Five Lakes area.
I have already trekked many of them.
However, There are still many other trails I have not trekked.

山歩きするにもってこいの季節が来ましたね~!
今まで富士山周辺の素晴らしい登山道をいろいろ歩いてきましたが、まだまだ行ったことのない所もたくさんあります。



So, I implemented to trek on the one of the fascinating but also challenging trail on my days off.
そこで、休日を利用してかねてより歩いてみたかった登山道を歩いてきましたよ~。

At first, I took the first Fujikyu train at Kawaguchiko station and transfer to JR Chuo Line at Otsuki Station.
Then, I arrived at Sasago station where is the starting point.

まずは、朝一の電車に乗り大月駅へ行き、中央本線に乗り換え、笹子駅で下車します。


The following map is my trekking plan.
I tried to across mountains including Mt.Mitsutoge to reach Lake Kawaguchiko and K's House Mt.Fuji!!
The total distance is nearby 20 kilometers and the vertical diference is around 1200 meters.

今回の計画は、ここより山を登り、縦走し、河口湖のケイズハウスMt.富士まで歩いて向かいます!!
距離は大体20キロ、高低差はおおよそ1200メートルです。

I started to trek just before 7:00am and got to the trail head in 10 minutes.
The steep trail was waiting for me.

7時前に笹子駅前から歩き始め、10分足らずで登山道の起点に到着。

On the way to reach mountain ridge, many tender green leaves can be seen this season. Some pylons are standing on the trails.
今の時期は尾根の稜線に出るまでの道中、若葉の新緑を楽しめますよ~。鉄塔が所々に立っています。


I got to mountain ridge in around 1.5 hour. But Mt.Fuji was still not seen.
約1時間半後、尾根に出ましたが、まだ富士山は望めませんね~。

The mountain ridge trail is going Mt.Honjagamaru and Mt.Mitsutoge. It is easy walking to Mt.Honjagamaru on that trail and nice to see the landscape.
尾根道は本社ヶ丸という山を経由し三つ峠山まで通じています。本社ヶ丸へ続く道は散歩道のような感じで周りの景色も堪能できますよ~。


Then, the first Mt.Fuji view was shown up quite quickly!!

程なくして、富士山発見!!


When I reached Mt.Honjagamaru, even a part of Lake Kawaguchiko was also seen not only Mt.Fuji!!
本社ヶ丸では河口湖もほんの一部ですが見れました!!


Keep going and passing through Mt.Seihachi(Good view point as well!).
清八山を越えて更に歩き続けます。


Then, some broadcast buildings and aerials were seen on the top of Mt.Mitsutoge.
そうすると、三つ峠山の頂上に立つ電波塔や中継基地が見えてきます。


I got to the summit of Mt.Mitsutoge!!
三つ峠山到着!!


Beautiful landscapes from Mt.Mitsutoge always attract to the people!!

三つ峠山から見える景色はいつの時代も人々を魅了しますね!!



Mt.Mitsutoge is also popular for rock-climbing.
三つ峠山はロッククライミングでも有名です。


Haha-no-shirataki waterfall can be seen on the descenting trails goes to Kawaguchi Asama Shrine.
河口浅間神社へ下る道中では母の白滝も見る事が出来ます。


Finally, I arrived at Lake Kawaguchiko and K's House Mt.Fuji at 14:20pm!! It was a bit early to check in ;)
そしてついに河口湖、ケイズハウスMt.富士に到着!!時間は14時20分!!ちょっとチェックインには早かったですね~。


I immediately went to Onsen to relax after long trekking! It was really nice day off!!
その後すぐさま温泉に向かったのは言うまでもありません!素晴らしい1日でした!!

In Japan, February 3rd, we have unique custom, call "Ehomaki (Frotune roll)"
It is the roll sushi eating, for "setubun festival", eaten in the evenin, with eyes closed, in silence, facing one direction.
This year, North north west is the "fortune direction", where the God the year is.


恵方巻のシーズンですね!
ご存知の通り、節分の夕方に食べられる恵方巻。
目を閉じて、静かに一気に食べる。
そして、「恵方」を向く。今年は北北西です。




Like this.
こんな感じです。


Of course, we tried! Ehomaki-party!
