LAKE TOWADAKO AND MT.HAKKODA

We went to Lake Towadako and Mt.Hakkoda.  We started from Oirase-Keiryu beck.

                      十和田湖と八甲田山に行きました。

We got on a cable car on the foot of Mt.Hakkoda.

八甲田の麓でロープウエイに乗りました。

When we arrived at Mountain top station,heavy snow was falling.

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

It was a full Moon day when we  stayed a hotel in Aomori.

 青森のホテルに泊まった日は満月でした。

 







We have various kind of names about Moon.

One day after full Moon : Hesitating Moon.
Two days after : Moon, waiting for by standing
Three days after : Moon,waiting for by sitting
Four days after : Moon, waiting for by laying.


満月の次の日は十六夜(いざよい)と言います。躊躇するをいざようと言った事が語源の様です。
その次の日は、立ち待ち月です。
その次が、居待ち月です。
その次が、寝待つち月です。

  2. こんばんは。紅葉のお写真きれいです。
    それに、満月!お見事です。まるで東山魁夷の日本画のような雰囲気のあるお写真ですね。私も月が撮りたくて挑戦したことがありましたが、デジカメではちっともうまく撮れませんでした。

  16. こんにちは、写真で拝見すると、十和田湖、八甲田山がちょうど見ごろで、奥入瀬があと1週間か10日くらいといった感じでしょうか。十和田湖の遊覧船からの写真がとても綺麗です。11月になると関東も紅く染まってくると思いますが、もうちょっとですね。月の一番下の写真は表面の模様まで、よく撮れてます。

  30. こんばんは

    もう東北には雪景色のところがあるんですね。 幽玄な素敵な写真ですね。 十和田湖がとてもきれい! 私は高校時代に十和田湖へ行ったことがあるのですが、奥入瀬を少し歩いたことだけしか覚えていません。お写真を拝見してまた行きたくなりました。 高校生の時って、ほとんど何も見てませんものね。

      こんばんは。私も何十年ぶりに行きました。紅葉の時期はやはりとても美しい景色を見る事が出来ました。
       八甲田で雪に見舞われるとは思ってもみませんでした。機会が有りましたら、是非いらして下さい。

  31. 池や湖の色が、きれいですね。紅葉の反射は、特に鮮やかです。ケーブルから撮られた紅葉と霧の組み合わせがおもしろいです。私もねらってみたいです。奥入瀬は、学生時代の夏休みにいきましたが、緑と水の爽やかだったのを思い出します。
    Have a nice day!

  36. 奥入瀬、私も行ってました!残念ながら渓流散策は雨模様で、紅葉のピークにはまだ少し早かったのですが、それでも十分に満足できました。出来ることなら今もう一度行きたいのはやまやまなんですが。十和田湖もこういう風に望める場所があるんですね。八甲田はガスがかかっていてロープウェイは中止しましたが、青森に向かう途中の八甲田ゴールドラインはまさしく最高の黄葉。青森が想像以上に都会なので驚きました。写真のようなきれいなお月様は見ることができませんでしたが、ここ奈良で見上げています。
    前回のポストの山々。心の中に染み渡る光景ですね!

      こんばんは。奥入瀬にいらしたのですか、ブログのアップが楽しみです。八甲田ゴールドラインの美しさを堪能出来て良かったですね。私は八甲田のロープウエイから酢ヵ湯へ、2回ハイキングに行きましたが、2回とも雨、今回は雪でした。
       前回のポストも見ていただきましてありがとうございます。
       今年は12月に談山神社、室生寺等に来年の1月に若草山の山焼きに行く予定をしてます。
