LAKE TOWADAKO AND MT. IWAKISAN.

  We went to Lake Towadako next day and Mt.Iwakisan last day by a rental car. We would reserve both way train tickets and hotels and borrow a rental car beforehand.

  4. You took a wonderful fall trip. Those trees are so tall - they must be ancient.

  9. いいですねえ! 秋晴れに恵まれていい旅になったことでしょう。 十和田湖はある小説に載っていたような気がしますが、写真、初めて見ました。 紅葉が大変美しいです。

      こんばんは。 十和田湖に紅葉がまだ残っているとは思っていませんでしたので、大変嬉しかったです。

  10. 真っ青な空に白樺が美しいです。岩木山、登られたんですね。青空の下、気分爽快ですね。私たちもレンタカーを時々使いますが、便利ですよね。でも慣れない車に気をつかいますが。
    Have a nice day!

      こんばんは。十和田湖の西湖畔にある、プリンスホテルの庭で撮りました。岩木山には、ヘアピンカーブが61個も有りましたが、空いていましたので、ゆっくり運転出来ました。 最近は、トレインアンドレンタカーで旅行をする事が多いです。

  14. 私たちも車以外での旅行の際は、レンタカーで移動することが多いです。もちろんドライバーは主人ですが。行動範囲が広がりますよね。懐かしい光景です。敢湖台からの眺め、すばらしいですね。岩木山は遠くに眺めるだけでした。青森市内は想像以上に街でしたが、まだまだ行ってみたい所はたくさんありますね。

      こんばんは。 岩木さんの8合目には初めて行きました。雪が残っていると期待したのですが、ご覧のとおりでした。敢湖台は旧道の103号線にあります。今はバイパスが出来てほとんど人が行かない所です。絶景を楽しめました。

  15. 青空、空色の湖、紅葉、滝と渓流・・・絵に描いたような秋の東北の旅、きっと心も体もリフレッシュされたことでしょう。十和田湖は学生時代夏休みに行き、遊覧船にのりました。白樺がきれいですね。

  20. I miss Lake Towada, we used to visit that place when we lived in Japan and I took a picture of that Choshi Falls too. I started my blog when we lived in Misawa, Aomori. Nice shots, I feel like I wanna go back to Aomori
