This months mountain was Takamatsusan in Tanzawa. It was a warm but fairly cloudy day, and I had just played in a futsal tournament the previous day so was a bit tired. Still, this time of year there are a few surprises waiting in the mountains…

There were a few of these strange looking flowers.

The mountain trail went through various types of terrain and scenery:

I came across a snake and tried to play with it. Im not sure what kind of snake it was, but it didnt look poisonous so I pet it a few times as well.

It was a long and beautiful snake.

At the top of the mountain was a clearing, but the clouds were low and there was no view to be seen.

Lunch was yaki-goya-chanpuru-soba

At the top.

On the way down I discovered a mysterious bone. I wonder to what animal? Human maybe?

Also on the way down were lots of wild mountain berries. I picked many and ate many and they were very good. Strange that the other people in my group didnt want to try them..


  1. lol that does look like human bone. From last person who ate berries he couldn’t identify and played with snakes he couldn’t identify.

  2. please don’t eat the ’shrooms or you’ll find yourself floating in a boat on a chocolate river seeing images of giant insects

  4. I think the snake was an アオダイショウ, and well the berries were just delicious.
