Golden Week Trip to the Mountains

We took a trip to the mountains during the 10 day Golden Week.

We took the Shin-Shonan bypass to the Ken-O highway and got off at Akiruno, about 1 hour from Shonan


From Akiruno we went to Okutama in western Tokyo. Okutama is much different from Tokyo city, it is a beautiful mountainous area.


From Okutama we went to Yamanashi and stopped at the Doshi rest area (Michi-no-Eki).


There were many bikes at the Doshi rest area.


The Doshi river runs next to the Doshi rest area. The Doshi river is a tributary (支流) of the Sagami river.
