Mt. Mitake -- well almost

I tried to visit Mt. Mitake today. Tried but failed. I made it out of Tokyo to the Mitake train station but I just couldn't find the cable car that goes up the mountain. It is located a fair distance away from the train station but after walking for quite some time in what was supposed to be the correct direction I just assumed I was going the wrong way.

No matter. The scenery was beautiful and I managed to find what is probably THE fishing spot at Mitake. A lot of people (and families) out fly fishing or having a picnic along the shore of a river.

I had to walk along the edge of the road with very little room between me and the traffic.
