MT. BANDAISAN IN FUKUSHIMA.

         We went to a trip to Mt. Bandaisan and Lake Inawashiro in Fukushima

             会津磐梯山と猪苗代湖への旅に行きました。


Mt.Bandaisan. 弥六沼から見る、裏磐梯です。


We stayed a hotel by the swamp named Yarokunuma.



We could see this mountain from the room where we stayed.

弥六沼の畔に立つホテルです。 磐梯山がいつでも見えました。

Next day,we went to hiking to see many swamps which were made by the big eruption of this mountain about 120 years ago.

約120年前の大噴火で、周辺に200^300の沼が出来ました。


Yanag-inuma swamp. 柳沼です。



Ao-numa swamp. 青沼です。




Benten-numa swamp. 弁天沼です。




Bishamon-numa swamp. 毘沙門沼です。




We could see many flowers along the hiking trail.


Japanese iris.  花菖蒲です。




Shimotukeso. シモツケソウです。


Thistle. アザミです。



Pink bell flower. ホタルブコロです。



White bell flower.



Nori-utugi. ノリウツギです。



This bee is making a new nest.

アシナガバチが巣作りをしていました。


We went to Lake Inawashiro last day, and got on a funny sightseeing boat.


A swan shaped boat. 猪苗代湖の遊覧船です。




We could see the the mountain from the another side.

表磐梯です。


Zooming up. ズームアップしました。



When we went to Mt.Adatarayama,it rained very much.

安達太良山です。

「、、、阿多多羅山(あたたらやま)の山の上に
                                  毎日出ている青い空が
                  智恵子のほんとうの空だといふ。
                  あどけない空の話である」





ほんとうの空は見えませんでした。

我が家の近くの染井霊園に光太郎、智恵子の墓があります。

「レモン哀歌」にちなんででしょうか、いつもレモンがお供えしてあります。

  1. Nice flower pics! Loved the swan boat too. The colors of the water in the swamp remind me of Clear Lake, where I camped recently.

  7. Oh my goodness! Those scenic photographs are beautiful especially the last one with the fog. The flowers are colorful and taken perfectly. I also was curious as to how the room would look that you stayed in. It looks so peaceful where you stayed. Fantastic job!

  8. 磐梯山の山並み、神秘的な色を帯びる沼の湖面。 
    海外の方が日本のlandscape を好まれるのが何故だかわかるようです。
    これら 湿り気を帯びた深い色合いなのかもしれませんね。

    私の一番は、猪苗代湖 ハクチョウ丸のカメラ目線と素敵な冠です。

  32. すてきだなあ。青沼と言うだけあって、きれいな藍い色ですね。 オレゴンのにもCrater Lake という噴火で出来た、青い湖があるのですけど、とても美しいです。
    ご親切に感謝しています。 だいぶ日本の旅の予定が決まりました。 その前にハワイの娘のところとハワイ島に旅行します。 そこから帰ってからは、大急ぎで準備の締めくくりとなります。 ほんの数日前まで、まだまだ時間があるなと油断していたのがウソのようです。

    2. ありがとうございます。 先日戻って来ました。 楽しかったです。 日本の学校が7月21日に夏休みに入ったせいで、日本人家族の旅行者でにぎわっていました。 次回はもっと早くに旅行した方がいいかも知れません。 とにかく、Hurricane たちも 避けられてラッキーでした。 これから日本の旅の準備です。 今月末は涼しくなっているでしょうか? 今はどちらを旅していますか?来週からまたブログ始めます。 お時間があれば、よってください。

  33. 青い沼がきれいですね。弁天沼も、青くしずんで神秘的です。でも、なぜ青い色になるのでしょうか。噴火物のせいでしょうか。Thank you for sharing beautiful tour. Have a good summer!

      こんばんは。コメントありがとうございます。 火山の噴火の時に出た、アルミニウムイオンが青い色を反射して青い沼を作ると言われています。
       一般的に青い沼には魚は住めないそうです。

  37. 明るく紺碧の湖を見ますと沼がいっそう神秘的に見えます。水滴のついたあざみ、可愛い。Nice shot の連続です。

    依水園へご訪問ありがとうございました。滝の写真はISOを200に設定し(ISOオートはだめです)絞り優先16で撮影しました。天候に寄りますがいつもこのくらいでシルキータッチの滝が撮れます。
