If you climb up this flight of stairs, you will reach the beautiful Mikuri-ga-ike (a crater that you will see in the next post). But if you go the other way, down you will reach the "hell's valley". More on hell's valley in the coming posts.
Starting with this photo, is a series of photos from my 4-day vacation last weekend @ Tateyama of Toyama Prefecture. Tateyama is one of the Three Sacred Mountains in Japan along with Mt. Fuji and Mt. Hakusan. With its peak at around 3000m, it easily became a popular spot to avoid the summer heat.
