At almost 450 meters above sea level, the views from Kezo-Ji are quite stunning.
Looking down on Daikon Island in the middle of Nakaumi. Nakaumi means Middle Sea, but technically its a lake. At 86 sq K its the fifth largest lake in japan. Behind Daikon Island is Yonago in Shimane and Yonago in Tottori. If the weather was clearer Daisen would have been visible.
Looking along the Shimane Peninsular towards Mihonoseki. In the middle is Sakaiminato in Tottori on the Yumigahama. In the Kuniyuzri myth this strip of land is a rope that tethers the Shimane Peninsular to Mt. Daisen. Not visible between Sakaiminato and the Shimane Peninsular is the narrow channel that connects Nakaumi to the sea.
The Japan Sea coast of the Shimane Peninsular. This is the area I walked on my Golden Week Walk.
Right down below.... part of Nobara village.
The west shore of the Nakaumi with Honjo.
