Fall has always been my favorite time of year. I love the color and smell of autumn leaves and I prefer the brisk wind over Tokyo’s summer humidity. I am thinking of taking a short vacation this weekend. I have been to Nikko once before and really enjoyed my experience. I stayed at a very nice lodge there. The owner of the lodge does yoga every morning at 7am. It was a great way to start the day. I am tempted to go to this same place again because my last experience was so nice however, I am also interested in traveling to new locations. I heard that Mt. Mitake also has nice hikes. I have never been there and I am wondering if there are affordable accommodations in the area. If anyone has any recommendations before Saturday please let me know! 新宿インストラクター Jamie
