愛宕神社 Atago Shrine
In Kamimiyazu, there is a shrine called Atago Shrine. On the 3rd Sunday of April, Kamimiyazu festival is held. Early in the morning (about 4 a.m.) the people of Kamimiyazu head for Atago Shrine. I heard the story "We climb up a mountain and it is quite far", so a few years ago I searched for it. However, I couldn't find it at all. This year, my student said to me, "I think you'd like it". I asked her, "Where is it?", but she replied, "I don't know". Every year this 17 year old student takes part in the Kamimiyazu festival which she loves, but she honestly doesn't know where the place is. That's strange！！！ So I used Google Earth one more time to look for it. I found the only place I thought it could be. So the other day I went to explore and I finally found it. However, I'll keep the location a secret. It's a special place for the people of Kamimiyazu.
I climbed up a fair way. In these trees I heard a bird crying. Then it flew. I think it was a peregrine falcon. I've seen the same bird here once before. At that time I was going up a nearby mountain with Megane Kappa.
