The Momiji is a Japanese symbol, in my mind, as memorable as Fuji-san or sakura ( cherry blossoms). It is a good thing we chose to take the cable car (train) down Tsukuba-san as the pedestrian route had nothing like the brilliant display of the journey down the mountain by train and especially the terminal station at the bottom. It was a fitting end to a lovely weekend. Thank you Kenji-san and the Okano-sans.
