A long drive to Usui Pass 3rd Bridge (Megane Bashi) to see the abandoned red-brick bridge.
Though having lost its castle keep, Nijo Castle is a worthy visit for its Ninomaru Palace, a rare surviving example of Japan’s castle palace.
Brief visit to Momijiyama Garden, located next to the Sunpu Castle ruins. Though relatively small, the garden features four distinct scenes which represent the scenic landscapes of Suruga.
Continuing my hike in Kamikochi, from Kappabashi (Kappa Bridge) to Myojin-ike (Myojin Pond).
