Last Sunday, April 16th, 2017, I went hiking in Mt. Aoba in Takahama-cho. When looking at the mountain from Obama City, it looks sharp like a pyramid and it’s beautiful. It is 693 meters above sea level. Not only I enjoyed hiking, but I also enjoyed the bird sounds of pheasants and Japanese bush warblers which I heard as I was walking in Satoyama (farming landscape near the hills in Japan) at the foot of the mountain after the descending the mountain.
There was such a fine male pheasant chirping right near a farmer.
