it's starting to turn cold... only a few nights below 0°C. On the other hand, Tokyo was 20°C this week. So definitely one must be prepared for temperature swings. Casey...

Mt. Asama is an active volcano...

It's an excellent location for that morning walk...

the only issue is that it seems to be "mostly" upslope walking \(ツ)/. Casey .
