Nishizawa Valley, Taizan Hanten, Gusto

Young scientists visited our institute in the morning, and I showed them around. In the afternoon, Katya, Maya-san, and I went to Nishizawa Valley in Yamanashi city. The temperature in Kofu was higher than 30 degree C today, but in the mountain, it lowered to 24 degree.      It was cool and pleasant. Maya-san found something “real” under the ground.

When we got to the valley, the rain became heavier. It rained harder and harder. It could have been the heaviest rain this year. Unfortunately, right from the entrance, we had to go back to our apartment. After coming back to our apartment, the rain got weaker and eventually stopped.
