Supreme Overnight Stay At Mt. Tsurugi! Kirengeshoma Flowers, The Milky Way, And The Sunrise Over The Sea Of Clouds

You can climb Mt. Tsurugi from the lift to the top in 30 min. I stayed overnight at a mountain hut on the top... Then, I could see the starry sky and the sunrise over the sea of clouds! From the late July to the early August, the original volunteer plant Kirengeshoma is also in the best season to see.

Taste Your Nerve! 'Female Bridge' Of Double Kazura Bridges With See-through Floorboards

Okuiya Double Kazura Bridges have Obashi (Male Bridge) and Mebashi (Female Bridge). It's better for you to challenge Female Bridge because it's shorter and lower than Male Bridge. The handrail is made by ivy, and the floorboards are see-through. It's frightening! Don't swing it, pleaseeee!
