We managed to catch a glimpse of the autumn leaves before they completely disappeared for the year. The area is famous for its cherry blossoms so I hope to come back in spring.
The 1000 step path. Beautiful, meandering and not at all strenuous.
Half-way up there was a sweet garden tended to by hard-working, sure-footed monks.

By the time we got down the sun was setting and everything was the most wonderful shade of pink.
