Mt Oyama aka Too Much Stairs
Another trip to another Shrine! Except this one was in the center of Japan, nearly on top of Japan.
There were a TON of stairs to get up to the cable car which actually takes up to MORE stairs! It was very tiring but in my opinion very worth it.
At the top was a very chill place, and another shrine. There was also a very nice view of Japan since we were very high up on the mountain. It was kind of weird seeing a lot of the people that had walked up here, because the majority of them were old! I had no idea how they even thought that walking up all those stairs were a good activity for them! They were wearing layers of clothes which looked very hot, but look at them, they weren't even sweating!
After having a breather, we were taken into a lounge, where we studied a bit of japanese history, and had a look at old japanese treasures.
We then had a look around the mountain and apparently there were bears! I kinda wanted to see a bear, but sadly, i didn’t. On the way back down, we saw another shrine with a lot more people around it. The place was very nice and surrounded with nature.
I enjoyed the trip! Getting back to school, i was very tired, so i just chilled out in our group classroom. Thank you to the teachers that looked after us on that trip!
