Mt. Kurodake’s eastern face

As a result of the snow that fell intermittently since the first snow on the 16th, almost all of the leaves have fallen. However, as can be seen in the photo, some Sorbus matsumurana color can still be found here and there.
I started climbing and found that trail is bad from the 7th Station up to the peak. Climbers wearing athletic shoes will find the going difficult. All necessary gear should be brought for safe climbing.
Incidentally the leaves on Mt. Kurodake have changed colors down to the 5th Station. Riding the lift, I noticed that a small number of leaves have begun falling. However, beautiful colors—including those of the grasses on the ground—can still be seen. People wishing to see them should hurry!
