I enjoyed the Koharubiyori of Mt. Azuma in late autumn. Mt. Azuma near Ninomiya Station on the JR Tokaido Line is a small mountain 136 meters above sea level with a wonderful view overlooking Tanzawa, Fuji, Hakone, Izu Peninsula, Oshima, Miura Peninsula and Sagami Bay. How is Chami, the idol cat of Mt. Azuma in Scottish Fold walking up to the top of the mountain? It was a beautiful sunset.
That is the 77 th temple of Shikoku 88temple pilgrimage.The principal image is Yakushi Nyorai.That is the head temple of Daigo school of Shingon sect.From Konzoji Temple, I walkIed about four kilometers through Tadotsu’s rural area toward the Seto Inland Sea. The pilgrimage goods store in front of the gate of Niomon creates an atmosphere of pilgrimage. There are many small hokora (small shrines) in the precincts of the shrine.
Ritto has come again this year. It is said that the day of 24 divisions of the old calendar is the day when autumn reaches its climax and the sign of winter begins to appear. From now until the first day of spring is winter. The day before the first day of winter, the Chigasaki Beach saw a spectacular sunset that seemed to welcome the first day of winter.
In October, there were two full moons in a month at the beginning and the end of the month. The first one was the harvest moon of the first day and the second one was on the 31st. It is rare for a full moon to occur twice a month, but once every two or three years. The second full moon is called a Blue moon. I watched the full moon climbing toward Kamakura from the bank of Chigasaki fishing port.
