I had a meeting yesterday in Gunma Prefecture, and was able to eat lunch with several people along the shores of Lake Haruna. This is a volcanic lake that sits atop Mt. Haruna, and is famous for, among other things, it’s mini Fuji-san – a portion of the mountain coming out of the lake that bears the familiar shape of Mt. Fuji. Unfortunately, it was very cloudy and rainy, so we weren’t able to see that very well. However, at these higher elevations the autumn colors are in full swing, and I was able to grab this photo from just outside the restaurant where we ate. Won’t be long before these colors are making their way down the mountains for the rest of us! It was nice to get a little sneak preview of what’s to come.
