1st Mt. Fuji, 2nd Hawk, 3rd Aubergine

A HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

What was your first dream in 2010 ?
It's said in Japan if you can see even one of them in your first dream of the year, you would have a good year.

Unfortunately, I saw none of them.... but viewed the real Mt. Fuji.



These photos were taken in Owakudani that is a volcanic valley with active sulphur vents and hot springs in Hakone, Kanagawa Prefecture, Japan. It is a popular tourist site for its scenic views, volcanic activity, and especially, Kuro-tamago — a local specialty of eggs hard-boiled in the hot springs. The boiled eggs turn black and smell slightly sulphuric; consuming the eggs is said to increase longevity. Eating one is said to add seven years to your life. (Wikipedia)
