Autumn has come to the sea of Seto. The sea is blue. Enjoyed the early autumn breezes and views on the embankment of Gunchu Port in Iyo City, Ehime Prefecture. On the side of Goshikihama, there is a legend that a princess of the Heike family threw herself into a five-colored stone. A boat leaves the harbor for fishing. I watched the sunset with a cat on the embankment. Fall in the Seto Inland Sea heals the mind.
While I was on a pilgrimage in Shikoku, I met expressive cats everywhere. The calm atmosphere of the cats I met at parks, fudasho and sando (an approach to the temple) made me feel at ease as I tried to hurry. Now that I think about it, it might have been a message from the Odaishi-sama to “take a rest.”
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.
