My Impressions

 This trip was the first time I got to use some new GoPro equipment. A 360-degrees rotating tripod for time-lapse filming. The time-lapse function makes for really interesting videos. Take a look at the awesome videos that I took at the summit. I'm looking forward to using it again for my future climbs.
 I think this mountain might be the easiest mountain to climb of the one hundred mountains, if you use the Drive-way by car. My climb took just 20 minutes! That's why this place is so popular for families. And at the summit, I could see the huge lake Biwa the largest lake in Japan. I recommend climbing this only in good weather. Because the Drive-way is expensive to use. -- it costs about ¥3,000 — so it would be a waste of money if you go in bad weather.
 After the short climb, I went to Biwa Lake to see the sunset. It’s so big that it looks like a sea. This place is not so far from Kyoto or Nagoya, so I believe you can fit in some more sightseeing into your trip. Should you wish to.
