雨もなんのその、我々はどんなときでも、どんな所にでも行くのです。
こんな状況になると楽しさが倍加するんです。
どんな状況だって楽しいんです!
雨に煙る景色って、すごくステキ!
もちろん最後は、これっ!!

This was my second times to join to the hike of Ramblers. I enjoyed hiking on Shiragadake Mountain very much last time. So I was looking forward to hike on Kyoto Northern Mountain and Uotani Mountain in May.

 I had been worried about the whether since the day before, but it was rainy on the day as the whether forecast.
 However I made up my mind that I should go unless the hike was canceled. Then I head out to the meeting place, Demachi Yamagi Station.
 
 When I arrived at Demachi Yamagi Station I was impressed with Ramblers’s tight 25years relationship because there were many people than I expected considering the bad whether.

 There was the thing I was always surprised at during the transportation to the starting place of the hike.

 The scenery was changed very much to the country side with full of nature from the city in just 20 to 30 minutes by the train. I said to myself “What a beautiful place there was very close to the city!”

 There was one more big surprise this time. On the way to the starting place of the hike   I was talking with people around me in the train. Suddenly I was asked to write a report about the hike. It was real surprise!!!

 I had hiked in the rain since Elementary school. I was wearing the rain coat at first but it was so humid in the coat. So I took off the rain coat but I did not get much rain because of trees and leaves above me.

 It was still second time for me to hike in my life, besides it was rainy・・・.

 Nevertheless there were a lot of things I could enjoy. Right! I think everyone feels same way as I am. It is the thing you can meet many people and enjoy conversation during the hike. I could meet and talk with many people this time too. There were various people from different countries, different generations and different occupation.

 I meet many people related to my work in daily life. However my opportunity to meet people is limited only in job site. So I can broaden the chance to meet various people in Ramblers.

 Off course I enjoyed hiking in the nature. I enjoyed clean air, beautiful flowers and trees and a lot more. There was not the chance I could have a view from the top of the mountain this time. However I enjoyed having view of Kurama mountain and Hieizan mountain on the way. There were like white steam coming up from the mountains in the rain. It was quite mysterious scene.

 When I came to the stream on the way down there were beautiful maple trees. The scenery of the green and red maple trees contrasted with Japanese traditional hotels gave me impression of Kyoto.

 After all it was rainy all day long. I was so cold when I finished hike. So I went straight to “Sento” to take a bath with everyone. It was so good for the cold body and besides there was sauna. I could not find any other satisfaction!

  enjoyed hiking this time too even it was rainy. There are many ways to have fun in Rumblers. I definitely look forward to the next hike. If you see me on the hike please say “Hi!” to me.
