30 September

We had a hire car today so that we could go up into the mountain above Nikko, but the weather spoiled our plans somewhat.  Our first stop was the Kehon waterfall, but unfortunately we were up in the clouds there, and they were so thick that we couldn't see it at all.  We went on further, and the cloud raised, so we did manage to see some other beautiful waterfalls and Lake Chuzenji.  This photo was taken from the top of a pretty big waterfall at 10.58.  Happily I didn't fall in.  We gave up on our planned walk, and instead went to another onsen, again better than any we'd visited before.  In the evening we gave back the car and travelled by train to Oyama, where Nao's parents live.  They welcomed us with a delicious, enormous meal, and we played some more Uno in their living room before bed.
