I enjoyed a hiking in Ozegahara in late autumn on a bus tour.
The tour bus arrives at Hatomachi Pass one of the entrance of Ozegahara is 5:30 am, and this tour without a tour conductor free. I bring out my digital camera from Zack and start to walk around 6 am. Under the clear sky, I wandered around Ozegahara in late autumn, and the scenery of the autumn leaves and ponds of Ozegahara, which was quiet because at the end of autumn season. I enjoy wonderful hiking. Other: Oze Preservation Foundation. 2014/10/18
