|Hachimantai National Park|
|There were quite a few maps, but this one at the entrance|
was in need of repair. Otherwise facilities were in very good nick.
|There are many lakes on the highland|
|As can be seen on the map above|
We could have hiked to here from Fuku no Yu
|Where we stopped for lunch|
|Walking through the highlands|
|The cloud meant that were were unable to see far off mountains like|
Chokkai san and Akita Komagatake
|High level conservation with walking paths through most of the area we walked.|
So few people....
|Small lakes punctuate the highlands|
|A good place to escape the Tokyo crowds.|
