Hachimantai + Iwaki

Drizzle, mist, cold, and almost no one else on either mountain. Not surprising today.

Fortunately Kurikomagadake is on the list of 200 mountains, otherwise we might well have been buried in the landslides. Even 100 kilometers from the epicenter, the pension house shook violently and all the guests, mouths half-open during breakfast, looked nervously at each other. As always during any earthquake, I wondered what tragedy was unfolding at that very instant, and it would not be until the evening that we would learn the news.

  1. Yeah, it’s lucky you weren’t trying to knock off the 100 and 200 famous mountains at the same time! Sorry you had such uncooperative weather. The views from the top of Iwaki are some of the best in Japan! How’d Hana like the final rock scramble to the summit?
