城山茶屋(Shiroyamachaya) on Mt.Takao

There are several hiking courses on Mt. Takao. It was our second time climbing the mountain and we chose a different route than the first time. We didn’t have any information on this small mountain restaurant so it was a very pleasant surprise.

This restaurant had many delicious foods. We didn’t eat anything but I know because the smell of curry was great.

We didn’t want to eat but we had to have this Japanese traditional soda ラムネ (ramune).
Before we got married, when my husband was stationed in Japan as an air force serviceman, we saw this drink pretty often compared to today. It usually is drunken in the summer so it is easier to find then. They usually have good flavors like any other sweet sodas, but if you encounter the curry one, avoid it. I got it on sale from my local store. When we tasted it, we knew why they were on sale.

Here is my drawing of the ラムネ(ramune) we had at the mountain restaurant.

There were two cats chilling around the restaurant. Even though they were on a mountain, they looked like they have been feed good.

I’m more of a dog person but I don’t deny that cats are so cute!
I thought she/he was nice with pink.

While hiking, I saw this purplish-black butterfly on a white flower. I have a fear of insects so I usually avoid them but the contrast of these two things was so nice.

After we reached the bottom, we passed a small town to get to a train station. When we were passing a house I noticed this very small nest under their roof. Tiny birds were crowded in there. They were so still, I had to wait for a while to check if they were real. What a life!

We haven’t gone hiking for a while. Now the weather is warming up. I want to start hiking again! I’m sad that Winter is over though.
