Chichibu Red Buttercups, Ryokami, Ogano

Another favourite place! The “fukujuso” or yellow buttercups are flowering at Mt. Azumaya, Ryokami, Ogano, just behind Ryokami Michinoeki, also called “yakushi-no-yu onsen”. The Robai (“wintersweet”) were also in flower and their fragrance was divine. There are also a a few “Chichibu-beni” red buttercups which the local council is trying to propagate. Move over winter, spring is here. Yey!

Let’s start with yellow!

See Mt. Buko in the distance.

In the buttercup season the local council opens up this old house as a resting spot.
