These two places are nowhere near each other, but they were both an awesome way to spend a Thursday!
The Japanese kids are back in school, so we pretty much had the park to ourselves. The last time we were here it was a bit cold out. Today it was beautiful, but there still weren't many people.
This is one of the ways up to the top of the big rollerslide.
I have posted photos of this Buddha several times. It is on one of my favorite hiking trails near Takatoriyama. If you haven't been here yet, now would be a great time to go! There are some Cherry Blossom trees almost framing the face. It is very pretty right now.
My friends and I opted to walk down to Oppama Station from the Buddha. The Sakura trees are really starting to drop their petals. So much so that it looked like it was snowing.
