Green, Green, Green

...it's green they say...on the far side of the hill.

Escaping the city is sometimes all one needs. The amount of amazing greenery outside of Tokyo is stunning in its mass and beauty.

Densely packed tall mountains with nothing but green, green, green. Steep ravines with crushed granite boulders and rushing clear rivers...suspension foot bridges that wobble as you walk on them, more green then more green after that.

We dashed to-and-fro between the trees and trails, the rice fields and roads, soaking in the vivid landscapes before returning to a bustling, Sunday night Tokyo. It's a cleansing ritual that everyone who comes here should take.
