Autumn Colors and hot spring at Tsuchiyu Pass, Oct. 4, 2015 (土湯峠 の 紅葉 と 新野地温泉 2015年10月4日)

Today I visited Tsuchiyu Pass in Fukushima City where autumn leaves are getting better each day. It was so cold there that my breath turned white while taking pictures. It was a clear Sunday today and cars were clouded on the road. Even a number of bikes were out there.

The exact route and locations are shown in the map below. The map can be scaled up and down with a click and scroll.
