As usual, grad school has been consuming my life so I haven’t had much time to update this recently. Don’t worry though, I have plenty of things to write about which I plan to post whenever I have free time. Things like this!
Last November I decided to go to Soni Kogen with a friend. Soni Kogen is a huge field in Nara filled with pampas grass surrounded by hills and mountains. Late fall is the time to visit it due to the pampas grass being out in full force.
Getting there is a big pain though if you don’t drive. If you are in that situation, I recommend getting up as early as possible and making your way to the station because there are about only 2 or 3 buses that go to the fields in a day. So basically if you miss the bus, you are going to be waiting a long time for the next one. Not to mention the last bus back is around 4!
We got there really early so we had plenty of time to walk around the fields and climb some hills. It was cloudy but really beautiful. If you are a sucker for scenery, I’d recommend it!
