The second weekend in October we took a short afternoon motorcycle trip to see the cosmos flowers around Mt. Myogi, and on the way stopped at a famous shrine called Nukisaki Jinja. It was a short and sweet trip!
Nukisaki Jinja is a bit unique in that you take stairs DOWN to the shrine instead of UP.

Goshuuin from Nukisaki, the LAST in my book! WOW!
Torii gate with good views behind it. I had to cut the bottom out of the picture because of a bunch of cars though.
And on to Mt. Myogi… the cosmos were a tiny bit disappointing, but still not bad

A little further down the road, we’ve climbed these peaks before… 5 years ago!
This dudes famous
Entrance to the steep stairs to start the climb
These stairs were difficult to get up… and almost worse to go down!
