Yatsuyama Hiking Trail

 My friends invited me to join them on a Sunday hike and I was happy to do so.  We started at Kiyomizuyama Park in Shizuoka City.

Our starting point is the left side of this map, where the red star is.

There were a lot of ups and downs

At this place, you could go down the hill to a cemetary, but we did not because after the cemetary, you have to walk uphill again to get back on the trail.

There were shrines or temples and look out areas and lunch spots all along the trail.

We are here.

Continuing on....

Next, was a whole lot of stairs up to a temple.  There was something going on, but I don't know what it was about.

We found a nice place for a picnic lunch.

At the end, we came out of the woods at Gokoku Shrine.

Sunday was a beautiful sunny day in the 60's F.  I was so happy to get out with my friends.
