Should you ever stumble upon the above sign, be sure to look around as you will find yourself in one of the most spectacular natural scenes in the world.

Strangely, I was the only person there. Given the heat (humid and over 100 degrees), I wasn’t too surprised. I’m guessing this location is rather crowded on a weekend in spring or fall.

There is a picnic table next to the Arakawa River at this spot. Bring a bento, and enjoy the view.

Today’s photo comes from the annual Shingen Festival in Kofu. Although Takeda Shingen lived and died before this castle was even built, it’s fun to hang out with all of the participants dressed in period garb at the remains and reconstructed portions of the castle, even if the eras are a bit off.
