Climbing Kinkazan

Our friend climbed Kinkazan yesterday, and when we saw her pictures, they looked really beautiful, so we decided to give it a go today. Normally, Japanese mountains are kind of like walking up a slope, because they pave the paths. Not Kinkazan. We chose the hardest path on the way up, and there were times when we basically had to scale a sloped cliff. Like, using hands and carefully finding footholds. It was super fun, though!!
