About mittan Road

Nobody knows what happen tomorrow, but everything is necessary for myself on my life. This is my road I have been walking to be HAPPY-aging not anti-aging. And, where there's a will, there's a way!

The Highest Station 最高地・野辺山駅

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments

Hi, thanks for coming to my blog.
My husband and I went to Yatsugatake with our friends on the national holiday last week.
It was a wonderful day trip.
And we also stopped by the highest station in Japan railway called Nobeyama.
The altitude is 1,345m.
And the temperature was five degrees below zero at that time. Wow!
We enjoyed bird watching around there, and met a horned owl for the first time.
The horned owl was flapping above the snowfield. We were so excited!

先週、八ヶ岳にバードウォッチングに行った時に、野辺山駅にも立ち寄りました。




標高1,345m にあるJR最高地駅です。




ホームにある温度計を見ると、気温は-5℃!




こちらは、鉄道最高地点。 




雪原の上空で羽ばたくフクロウの仲間、コミミズクに初めて出会い大興奮でした。




私達が行った時は、晴天に恵まれ風も穏やかで、美しい景色に見とれていましたが、
週末に想像を超える大雪が降り、各地で被害が出てしまいましたね。
まだ孤立している地域もあるようで心配ですね。一日も早い復旧を祈ります。

The Seaside of Japan Sea   金沢の海辺で

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments


Hi, Thank you very much for coming to my blog.
Today I'd like to show you some pictures I took at the seaside in Kanazawa last weekend.
Actually I walked at the seaside of the Japan Sea for the first time.
I have the different image between the Pacific Ocean and the Japan Sea.
For example, I feel like the Pacific Ocean has a blue sky and the Japan Sea has a cloudy sky.
So, these pictures match with my image.
And I found a plastic bottle of Russian when we were walking at the beach.
Wow, it arrived from Russia, didn't it?!
Then we also found some plastic bottles of Chinese or Korean.
It was interesting!
Yeah, I felt again, we were at the seaside of Japan Sea!










先日、金沢へ旅行に行った際に、海の方にも行きました♪
日本海側の海辺を歩くのは初めて!イメージ通りの曇り空!
砂浜に打ち上げられたゴミをふと見ると、ロシア語の文字!!
他にも中国語や韓国語が書かれたペットボトルなどがあり・・・
そっか~、大陸から流れ着いたのね~と感心してしまう私なのでした。
日本海沿岸ならではですね(^^)


Trip to Kanazawa   金沢・冬の風物詩

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments

週末に、金沢に行ってきました♪

Hi, Thank you very much for coming to my blog always.
I went to Kanazawa with my husband on weekend.
It was overnight trip and we had many plans, so a little busy trip,
but the weather was perfect and we enjoyed sightseeing and eating delicious food.

Well, have you ever seen the things of winter in Kanazawa such as "Yukitsuri" and " Komokake"?
These are the things to protect trees or earthen wall from snow.
And these are made by straws. It was great! I thought it seems like a art.
Yeah, we had a wonderful time! I'd like to go to Kanazawa again.

Kenrokuen Park

兼六園は雪が残っていましたが、冬の金沢とは思えないほど暖かでしたよ~
雪害から樹木を守るために施される『雪吊り』も見事!
雪吊りは、一般家庭の御庭の木にも施されていて、あちこちで見掛けました。
金沢の冬の風物詩ですね。


The site of samurai class houses

武家屋敷跡
土塀を雪から保護するために、『薦掛け(こもかけ)』と呼ばれる藁が設置されています。
これもまた、冬の金沢の風物詩だそうです。


I love seasonal food!

さすが食材の宝庫石川県ですね~ 食事もとても美味しかったです。
特に「白子の昆布焼き」と「あん肝の蒸し寿司」が絶品でした!
旬の食材を使ったお料理もまた冬の風物詩と言えますね。

A Spiritual Spot    戸隠

スピリチュアルスポット戸隠へ行ってきました。

Hi, thanks for coming to my blog.
How was your weekend?
I went to Togakushi in Nagano prefecture with my husband.
Togakushi is one of our favorite place.
There are grand nature, famous shrine and many soba noodle shops.
We enjoyed walking, bird watching in woods
and eating new soba noodles because it's the season of new buckwheat.
The weather was perfect, and the spiritual atmosphere relaxed me.
So I'd like to show you some pictures today.
I'm happy if you enjoy seeing them.
Thank you.

And if you'd like to know some soba shops, please visit my another blog.

Boys be Ambitious!

Posted by mittanr on   4 comments

Hi, Thanks for coming to my blog always.

We went to Hokkaido last week.
The season is early autumn,
but it was a short summer vacation for my husband.
So we visited Otaru and Sapporo only.
Otaru is one of our favorite port town.
We love that quiet atmosphere.
If you have time,
please look at some pictures I took in Otaru that updated on another blog.

Well, we visited Hokkaido University in Sapporo.
The campus was so beautiful!




This is the bust of Dr.Clark.
His teaching " Boys be ambitious " is really famous,isn't it?



And it reminded me the phrase " Girls be ambitious, Boys be audacious!" I liked.


This is Poplar avenue. We enjoyed walking.



We had a wonderful time!


札幌では、北大キャンパスを散策。
クラーク博士の胸像「少年よ大志を抱け」やポプラ並木も実際に見ることができて良かった。
私が好きだったフレーズ「少女よ大志を抱け、少年よ大胆になれ」も思い出しました(^_^)

Hi, Thanks for coming to my blog.
It's been heat wave these days,hasn't it? Too hot!
I hope you have a nice summer season.
By the way, we went to Karuizawa last weekend.
Karuizawa is one of famous summer resorts.
We enjoyed walking cool place in forest.
So,I want to show you some pictures I took at that time.
The play of sunlight through the trees were so beautiful!

猛暑が続きますね。。。
週末は軽井沢に行きましたが、避暑地でさえ日中は尋常ではない暑さでした(>_<)
そんな中、森の中のお散歩は快適。
色々な木漏れ日を楽しむことができました(^_^)/

It looks like a spotlight, doesn't it?

まるでスポットライトのようでしょ。


Sezon Modern Art Museum has a beautiful garden.

セゾン現代美術館の庭は散策におススメのスポット。

浅間大滝でマイナスイオンを沢山浴びました^^




An Active Volcano ~雄大な眺め~

Hi, how have you been?
I'm sorry I had not updated this blog recently.
I went to my hometown Kumamoto last Thursday, and I came back yesterday.
The weather was very good though it was hot in Kumamoto.
And Kumamoto is famous for Mt.Aso active volcano.
We went to the crater. It was so beautiful and I was impressed with the noble sight!

Nakadake First Crater

During moderate activity, the crater lake has bright green.

If you have some time, I want you to visit my another blog.

What a Beautiful Paradise! ~ 美しい楽園~

Posted by mittanr on   2 comments   0 trackback

Hi, thank you for coming to my blog.
How was your weekend?
I joined a bus tour with my husband and his friend.
And we went to the Norikura highlands and enjoyed seeing alpine plants and watching birds.
The place was so beautiful and cool! I felt really happy!!
By the way, when you go to the Norikura highlands you can't go in the place by your own car. Because there is the regulation of cars at the place.
I think it must be the reason the place has been keeping the beautiful nature.

週末は、お友達夫婦にお誘い頂き、箱根に一泊旅行に行きました♪

How was your weekend?
My husband and I went to Hakone overnight trip with my friend's married couple
because they invited us to Hakone hot springs.
We enjoyed drinking, eating nice food and talking a lot.
Yeah, we took a good spa of course!
For us, it was the first trip together.
However we felt relaxed, and had a wonderful time!

Watching Monkeys ~モンキーウォッチング!~

Posted by mittanr on   4 comments   0 trackback

上高地ハイキングの続きです♪
野生のおサルさんに遭遇してビックリ~!

Hello, how is it going?
June is the season to change clothes, isn't it?
So,I decided to dispose of my old clothes and cleared up today.

Well, I'd like to show you some pictures we took in Kamikochi today too.
Actually we expected to watch birds, but we were interested in watching wild monkeys!
I hope you like them.

monkey watching instead of bird watching!

バードじゃなくてモンキーウォッチングー!

good at climing trees, of course.

さすが!木登りが上手ですね♪

like a model!?

毛並みが美しいわ~カメラ目線もイイ!

holding baby monkey!!

なんと!赤ちゃんを抱っこしている母猿(左側、赤ちゃん猿分かりますか?)にも会ってしまいました!感動~!!右側のおサルさんも赤ちゃんらしき猿を抱っこしていたのですが、下からじーっと見ていたら、オス猿(ボス猿?)が近付いて来たので確認できませんでした。一瞬緊張しました(-_-;)

pretty ked monkey

おっとっと・・まだ小さいお子様猿、大丈夫かなぁ。。。

playing on the trees

びよよ~ん、わざわざ、そんな細い枝に乗らなくても・・遊んでるのかな。

eating fresh leaves

一心不乱に葉っぱを食べてるおサルさんも居ました。柔らかそうな若葉が好みのようでした。

They look happy.

今までにも、色々な観光地で猿に出会うことがありましたが、どちらかというと凶暴なおサルさんが多く、最初見つけた時は、近付いてきたらどうしよう・・と思ったのですが、上高地のおサルさんは違いました。それは、きっと、自然が守られ、ハイカー達のマナーも比較的良いからなのでしょうね。
おサルさんが人間に期待も恐怖も感じていない・・そんな心地良さを感じました。
私は、今回が初めての上高地だったのですが、マイカーでの立ち入りが規制され、沢渡という所からは、シャトルバスでしか行けないことも初めて知りました。山々も緑も水もとても美しく、感動しっぱなしでしたよ~また是非訪れたいな♪
