Kyushu Spring 2014 九州春季之旅 - Uomidake 魚見岳

Visited 25.03.2014

Reached the summit of Uomidake.

Uomidake is the first out of four places we visited in Ibusuki during a three hours long sightseeing taxi journey and is my favourite amongst them. So far, I'm not aware of any local buses which will serve this area, therefore you have to depend on an automobile to visit this spot.

Nearby Chiringashima and blooming sakura forms a beautiful scenery.
It was a pleasure peering out the windows to see blooming cherry blossom trees that lined the side of the winding road to the summit. This hill stands at 215 m tall and commands a good view of Chiringashima (知林ヶ島), an inhabited island, Ibusuki city and as far as Mt Kaimon on a good day. There are about 1,000 cherry blossom trees around here and blooming period falls between mid March to early April. I was already quite satisfied with the amount of blooming flowers I saw at Sakurajima Dinosaur Park in the morning, but this place was an elevation from what was experienced earlier in the day. Lush greenery with patches of pink forms a breathtaking picturesque scenery with the nearby Chiringashima. Was also lucky enough to capture the appearance of a faint sandbank that connects Chiringashima to the mainland (which occurs during low tide between March and October). Yet again mesmerisd by the beauty of nature and hopefully I get to cross over to Chringashima on my next trip to Ibusuki (if the sandbank appears on the day of my visit).  

Paragliding can be carried out here. 
Another breathtaking shot.
