Tokyo Daytripper: Kannokura Mountain

I think my girlfriend would be the first to admit she is not the most active of girls so I was most surprised when she suggested going hiking last Sunday up in Saitama. About an hour away from where we live, we got off in the middle of nowhere and had to walk for about 10-15 minutes to even find the hiking course which would take us from Tobu Takezawa station back to Ogawamachi station by way of a scenic mountain hike which would ultimately take us about four hours to do.

A lot of work you may think just for a mountain that stands at 350 metres high but as with all mountains its the achievement of getting there which is important in my opinion. Of course, the hot and humid summer heat didn’t do anything to make it any easier. One of the photos below shows me rather poorly impersonating Michael Jackson from his ‘Earth Song’ video and another one is of a beer vending machine which I haven’t seen for years and even included the mega-sized ones.
