Mt Yotei Crater Edge - Summer

The World > Asia > Japan > Hokkaido

Mt Yotei 1898 m is a beautiful mountain and the view from the edge of the crater is imperessive - this pano was taken just after all of the snow had melted which for me was a bit of a problem because i ran out of water on the hike !

Down below to the west you can see the hut which is open to hikers in the summer months. I hiked up the previous day and lugged up all my camera gear, food and water and stayed in the hut overnight...i was hoping there would still be some water in the crater but no.

Anyway i got up around 2 am and hiked up to the edge of the crater and then over to the north east side to watch the sunrise.

Was a beautiful morning but not exactly what i had in mind as there was a cloud inversion and i couldn't really see anything besides clouds - the tip of Mt Annupuri was just poking through to the the east.

Technically i'm not that happy with this pano as i had problems with the Nadir , sun and the exposure but though what the hell has been sitting on my hard drive for nearly 2 years and though might as well publish it.

Recommend hiking it in early June if you are a thirsty hiker like me !

Mt Yotei apparently last erupted in 1050 BC.

Ceci est un aperçu de Japan

The eight islands of Japan sprang into existence through Divine Intervention.

The first two gods who came into existence were Izanagi no Mikoto and Izanami no Mikoto, the Exalted Male and Exalted Female. It was their job to make the land for people to live on.

They went to the bridge between heaven and earth and, using a jewel-encrusted halberd, Izanagi and Izanami churned up the sea into a frothy foam. As salty drips of water fell from the tip of the halberd the first island was formed. Its name was Onogoro.

So far, so good. But when Izanagi and Izanami first met on their island, Izanami spoke to Isanagi without being spoken to first. Since she was the female, and this was improper, their first union created badly-formed offspring who were sent off into the sea in boats.

The next time they met, Izanagi was sure to speak first, ensuring the proper rules were followed, and this time they produced eight children, which became the islands of Japan.

I'm sure you did not fail to miss the significance of this myth for the establishment of Japanese formal society.

At present, Japan is the financial capital of Asia. It has the second largest economy in the world and the largest metropolitan area (Tokyo.)

Technically there are three thousand islands making up the Japanese archipelago. Izanagi and Izanami must have been busy little devils with their jewelled halberd...

Japan's culture is highly technical and organized. Everything sparkles and swooshes on silent, miniaturized mechanisms.

They're a world leader in robotics, and the Japanese have the longest life-expectancy on earth.
