Picking wild raspberries

19 Jun

June in Japan. Time to go for a walk in the foothills and pick brambles, also known as maple strawberries or momiji ichigo in Japanese.

While we were out, not far from our house, we passed a tree that had had the bark torn off by a bear. It was trying to eat the honey in the bee hive in the tree trunk!

The road winds beside the Yatsu River. A beautiful cool spot even in Summer. Take a bear bell!
