After a bowl of soba with mountain vegetables I get on the car. On the way I make a first stop on the parking lot of a large roadside shop in the middle of nowhere, specializing in regional products to admire Mount Fuji so close and so impressive. Back on the road I go through many forests that are in full Kouyo: shades ranging from green to purple through yellow and orange! Impressive. I make another stop in a parking lot along the road that serves as the observatory point of Mount Omuro.
