Kyoto: Daimonjiyama

My friends and I have started a travel group called DIY Travel Japan. We aim to share our DIY travel experiences in Japan to the world through blogging and vlogging.

Since I am co-contributing to the group, I’ll be sharing our content here in my blog as well.

If you have been following my blog, you know that I have been to Kyoto’s Daimonjiyama many times. Weekly, in fact.

This however is different because it shows group dynamics.  Real people, real events, and real interactions with Japan.

For the complete details on how to DIY this trip, check out Conquering Kyoto’s Mountains.

Please watch in HD and don’t forget to like our Facebook Page and subscribe to our Youtube channel for more.:)

Thank you and enjoy!

Time Lapse: Daimonjiyama

Hanami season has officially arrived.  So if you’re in Japan now, you are in-the-money!

I did my usual weekend things which is mostly reading, biking, and hiking.  But this weekend was something else!  The whole of Kamogawa was glittering with two things: cherry blossoms and people.  Therefore, I accomplished a substandard amount of vigorous physical activity.

The upside was I got to do more reading and shooting.  This week, I aim to finish Peter Bernstein’s Against The Gods: The Remarkable Story of Risk which tells the story of none other than risk.  Who would have thought to write a book about it?  Risk is an inherent part of our lives.  It’s what drives people to do or not to do.

Here’s what I got while reading the mammoth this morning:

 

I also redid my hiking video!  You can see it here in My Weekly Hike in Kyoto.
