Mt.Yoshino ー ①Beautiful mountain where maple, gingko trees vie for our attention with their beauty

      I went Mt.yoshino 3 days ago.
     Mt.yoshino is famous for its beautiful scenery.
      This is one of UNESCO World Heritage National Park.
      In Spring and Autumn,a lot of people visit there.
      (In Spring,many people visit there to see beautiful cherry blossom.) 
      The whole mountainside was ablaze with scarlet-tinged leaves.
      The  history of this mountain dates back to the 7th century.
     This mountain has a long history.
      Many historic event happend,
      and many historical people visited this mountain.
      For example,
      Yoshitsune,Japanese famous samurai,
      hid in this mountain about 1000 years ago,
      because  he  was defeated in battle,and he had a very narrow escape.
      The history of Mt.Yoshino is interesting.
      I would like to show you some of photos of this mountain.

This tree is called "Momiji" in Japan.
In autumn,many mountains are ablaze with scarlet-tinged Momiji leaves.
Mt.Yoshino is one of them.They are so beautiful.

This is the road to summit of this mountain,lined with beautiful Momiji trees.
This road is good hiking course,too,so is very popular among middle-aged people.

In autumn,we can enjoy the autumn color of this mountain,
and in april,the whole mountainside is covered with cherry blossoms.They're wonderful.

Hime, playful,and ladylike

Good evening!
Her way of sitting is so elegant.(No one trained her to do like that.This is by nature.)
Now is the end of November,It's getting colder and colder here,Yoshino.
So I dressed  my cat a knit wear.I am always careful about air condition of her room.
Her water vessel is always full of water.If water is running short,it's not good for her health,especially for her kidney.

She occupies the sofa as if she owns the place.Sometimes I tell her to move. Sometimes she moves reluctantly.
When she steps onto the dining table,I scold her. She never repeat mistakes.
2 years have passed since she came to our house. We maintain a friendly relationship.
