... by 15 Tokugawa shoguns until restoration of imperial power in 1868. After lunch, three of us and our tour guide caught a 45 minute bus ride to Chuzenji. We had to wind up a mountain to reach this little town and it was here that we visited Kegon waterfall. We took an elevator down so we could get a better view. It definitely isn't anything close to Niagara Falls but it was still nice to see. The water was coming over the falls at a rate of 4 tons ...

... pretty shocking, (lashing rain, thunder and lightning) but it made for some spectacular scenery. We visited Shuzenji Temple, built circa 786AD, and home to a 1200 year old statue of Buddha, carved by a monk out of a single Judas Tree around this time. Then we went to the Ryuzu Falls, a wild and deafening waterfall, before getting the bus back down the mountain, which is a pretty hair-raising experience, as the road is incredibly steep and ...

That series made me fall in love with Richard Chamberlain-sigh-one of the many gay guys I have had a crush on in my ...

... scrollwork decorated almost every surface. We also climbed up a winding and steep staircase (200 steps even) through a serene forest to the austere and sacred mausoleum of Ieyasu Tokugawa. It was quite a pleasant change from the busy atmosphere (countless busloads of tourists and school trips) of the buildings below.

After a few hours wandering around there, we walked by the Futarasan Shrine and Taiyuinbuyo, and ...

... to ask the friendly lady when the first bus to Numata would come. She also didn't speak a word english but from her gestures i understood that the bus i just stepped out of was the one going to Numata. :-P So i had to wait for 40 minutes to catch the next one.

I took of my shoes and socks to let them dry a bit, because they were soaked because of all the snow and mud. Not to mention that they smelled bad. Really bad. After a while a group of older japanese ...
