Chichibu Hiking Autumn Colours Report

Chichibu (秩父) is a great place for hiking, about an hour or so west of Tokyo.  This week I went to see the Autumn colors on a mega 9 hour hike.  It was tiring, but the sights were amazing…..

 One of the nice things about the Japanese countryside is things like this.  A local has grown some fruit and puts them outside somewhere with a sign saying how much.  You take what you want and put the money in the box.  Very trusting!  Welcome to Japan!

The trees started to get more beautiful as I went up the mountain.

While sometimes not in full bloom, it was a stunning hike.
