From Raichousawa to Murodou
I hiked up steep steps from Raichousawa1 toward Murodou2. Mikurigaike3 reflected Tateyama4 beautifully. I love Tateyama with good weather like this.
- 雷鳥沢（らいちょうさわ）. "雷鳥" means a ptarmigan and "沢" is the meaning of a small and/or narrow river. Raichousawa is not a name of river but a name of place (mainly a campsite). ↩
- 室堂（むろどう）. Murodou is very famous for the snow corridor. One of the snowiest area in Japan, in the world. ↩
- みくりが池（みくりがいけ）. “池” means a pond. ↩
- 立山（たてやま）. The general name of Oyama（雄山・おやま）, Onanji-yama（大汝山・おおなんじやま） and Fuji-no-oritate（富士の折立・ふじのおりたて）. But people often point that Oyama when he/she says Tateyama. The highest mountain of Toyama prefecture. ↩
