  1. Mountains are probably what I miss most living in Tokyo. I grew up next to the Rocky Mountains. I miss them so thanks for this.

    1. Know what you mean … mountainscapes add to the topography of being. Visited Tokyo this summer – a very busy urban space. Also visited Daisetsusan in Hokkaido, one of the highlights of our trip. Was intrigued by the expanding purple hue – racks of mountains into the far distance. Very beautiful.

    1. You make me smile! Yes i guess there’s a big difference to living in the thick of it through winter, whereas here it’s a bit of a novelty for us. Even Table Mountain had a light dusting (didn’t last long), but Cape Tonians were a little startled by it.
