Daimonji Fire Pits, Part 2

Adding to yesterday's post about our trip to the fire pits on Mt. Daimonji, here are a few more of Anthony and Kana-chan.

As I mentioned yesterday, the view felt much closer than from the summit. Oddly, being lower/closer made the feeling of height more impressive.

Some were inspired to flight...

The lower-right “leg” of the “大” (as seen when facing the mountain) is very, very long — about 140m of very narrow, tiny, steep steps — so the view from near its top, just below the center of the character, is impressive.

Taking a Relatively-Unused Path Back

Once back in the outer-edges of the city, we happened upon a man who had apparently just collapsed in the street. One passerby had just arrived to his area, but didn't really know what to do. I like to be a helpful person, so for a moment wondered what on earth I could do to help, until I remembered that Kana-chan's daddy is a medical doctor. Sweet.

I did my best to keep the kids out of the way and let him do his thing. A lady who lived in the area came out with blankets, and umbrellas for the rain that had started, and someone called an ambulance.

It seems that the gentleman had gotten dizzy or fainted for some reason, and other than bumping his head on the way down, was fine.

Finally on our way — in the increasing rain — we decided to bypass the last half hour of walking through the city and hopped in a cab, and our Mt. Daimonji hike was done for 2006.
