Shades of Red
Autumn is just around the corner and I am again excited in planing places I want to visit. However, frustration again starts to creep in as the best places for autumn in Japan are only accessible by car. As a foreigner from a 3rd world country, my attempts of getting my license converted was squashed with additional requests to provide more silly documents to authenticate my drivers license. When your interviewer doesn't even know where Manila, Philippines is, you know you are f*cked.
Despite these problems, I'm lucky to have adventurous friends who took me to awesome locations like this one. Mt. Hachimantai is probably my favorite place for autumn. The colors were just crazy despite the sulfuric smell of the nearby onsen. I plan to visit this place for the 3rd time, but without a car, more planning is required.
