DH had to leave earlier than us, someone from the Japanese company came and got him to take him to his talks in Hammamatsu and Osaka. The kids and I did not have to get up quite so early, but we didn't have time for breakfast. I had packaged brownies from the airplane, so let the kids have those, which is a ghastly thing for a mother to do, but I …

... the very top of the mountain. The pathway is lined with hundreds of huge torii which are like big orange gateways. On the sides as you look behind you are Japanese inscriptions which you cannot see from the front. It was a long walk/climb up to the top and after an hour or so we had finally made it.
