Today we shall hike to the nearby Tokugotoge Pass which is about 5 hour journey for 2 ways, as the weather forecast is cloudy in the morning and rain in the afternoon.

Though it is an easy trek, the path along the way is still breathtakingly beautiful nevertheless. The mountain and colour of Autumn is indeed magical.

It's fairly misty when we reach the pass, so we can't get a good view of the nearby mountain range. We have a hot coffee at the lodge and ate the apple cake we brought along. The guests offer us some apple.
