Kachou Fuugetsu Photo Blog: Mitakesan

 Mount Mitakesan, Tokyo花鳥風月 Kachou Fuugetsu = “experience the beauty of nature, learn about yourself.”

As you will no doubt read about in a future blog post, Mount Mitakesan, a – small sacred mountain in western Tokyo, has been a power spot, a day-long or overnight escape from the city, for R. and I since we first started dating like, 11 years ago. It’s where we got married, and we return there at least once a year to renew our vows, and pray to the local tengu warrior bird demons to watch over us in this life.

I recently uploaded a whole set of pictures from Mitakesan to my page at 500px. Follow the link to see the full set; here, for your viewing pleasure, are a few of the most popular pictures as chosen by 500pxers…

  1. Your pictures are so beautiful. I’ve heard Mount Mitake mentioned as a good side trip from Tokyo, but I’d never really looked in to it. I’m definitely marking this down as a place to go the next time I’m in the Tokyo area.

    1. Thanks for the comment! Yes, Mitakesan definitely has a special feel to it, and although it’s getting much more popular still nowhere near the crowds at Takaosan!
