Shitada's Yagihana in Autumn

These pictures below, taken this week, show the tinted autumn foliages on Mt Yagihana.

Here’s a picture of the same mountain in spring on the top of this page.

I had a chance to visit the Morohashi Museum on November 3rd, Japan’s Culture Day, to listen to a lecture by a famous Niigata writer, Atsuko Kanamori, who talked about the hardworking, endurance and toughness of Niigata’s women in the Edo and Meiji Eras.
