Mt.Kaimon

Kaimon1
At Nishi-Oyama station(西大山駅)in Ibusuki City(指宿市). This is JR station at the southernmost of Japan.Mt.Kaimon(開聞岳) is approaching your eyes. I do not know the station of such a wonderful view.

Nishioyama9
The platform of the station was crowded with enthusiastic railway fans and tourists.

Kaimon4
Everyone is fascinated by the graceful mountain.

Nanohana
Every year, "Ibusuki Nanohana Marathon" starts on the second Sunday of January.Along the roadside, nanohana(rape blossoms/菜の花) bloom in full,and this time the combination of Mt.Kaimon, Lake Ikeda(池田湖), and nanohana is amazing!

Kaimon3
At Sebira Park, Ei-cho, Minami Kyushu City(南九州市頴娃町、瀬平公園). The view of the mountain from the park is also superb.


Mt.Kaimon is located at the southernmost of Satsuma Peninsula in Kagoshima Prefecture, and the altitude is 924 m. It is one of the 100 famous mountains in Japan(日本百名山). The shape of the mountain resembles Mt. Fuji, so it is also called Satsuma Fuji(薩摩富士).Satsuma is the old name of Kagoshima.

菜の花が満開。

Nanohana

毎年、「いぶすき菜の花マラソン」が1月の第2日曜日に開催される。それに合せて、沿道の菜の花が満開になるように生育させているそうだ。この時季、九州最大の広さの池田湖では開聞岳、そして菜の花の組み合わせを堪能できるわけで、とても気持ちがいい。かなりの逆光のため、アングルは良くないが、ひとまず撮ってみた。
