Manhole cover collection

On the way to the parking lot of the Mui islet observatory, I newly found this manhole cover.

Mui islet in Toi

When I went to Esan last weekend, I found a sign board saying that Mui-no-shima Observatory. It was intriguing and we visited there. Entering the parking lot, we saw a northern fox! He ran away soon. Then, entering the path to the observatory, I found plenty of feces I've never seen. I think they were horses'. I've heard that there are wild horses in Toi area. From the parking lot to the observatory, it took about five minutes or so. I was scared of encountering wild horses on the way. I was lucky enough not to encounter any horses.
This is a picture that I took from there.

This is Mui islet and on the horizon you can see Aomori prefecture.


Ishizaki Jinushi Kai Jinja, a Shinto Shrine with a cherry blossom tunnel

On the same day I went to Esan, I visited a Shinto Shrine which is famous for its cherry blossom tunnel on the way to the main building.

Azaleas in Esan were not in full bloom yet, but cherry blossoms of this shrine were in full bloomXD!

The shine commands a really fine view!

Mt. Esan and azalea

Last weekend, my husband and I drove to Esan thinking that it was the season to see azaleas in bloom. But it was too early to visit there. Maybe, today or tomorrow is best season to visit to enjoy beautiful azaleas.

The picture below was taken on May 29, 2010. It was 20 % in bloom.

Only this tree was in full bloom.

It was really a fine day and we could see Mt. Esan very well.

But my husband is asthmatic and for people with asthma, Mt. Esan area is hard to stay. It is a volcano and its sulfur stays in the air. If you are asthmatic, too, it's better not to stay longer.
