Was on the road today. Again.
We were going to a place called Karuizawa, but I didn't really know what I'd find there until we arrived . I wasn't bothered.
And the ride was boring. Comfortable, yet boring.
But, I was no longer bored when I saw what was there.
It was a place where you can see the remains of the last eruption of the volcano Asama, which happened in 1783.
This is the volcano:
And these are the remains of the eruption:
So what? You'd ask.

And it had such power that twenty, thirty or even forty feet wide stones were thrown 30 kilometers!!!
I felt so helpless.
We humans, being the arrogant little creatures we are, think that we can change the world. And challenge the nature.
You need to come to a place like this to realize it is not....
I could virtually see those enormous stones flying all over the sky.
I did not even have to imagine.
I felt the overwhelming power of nature.
