A Quick Fall • 短い秋

The fall colors in Inakadate didn't last too long. For a few days, they were quite grand, but then suddenly winter-like weather came. The rain fell and strong wind blew. And of course, with that the leaves quickly disappeared.

Here in Inakadate it was rain, but when the rain stopped and the clouds cleared, it was clear that it hadn't been rain everywhere. All the mountains surrounding Inakadate were covered with white. From here the ski slopes at the top of Owani Ski Resort were visible as well as big parts of a white Mt. Iwaki.

Of course, this was only the first of many snowfalls. From what I have heard and can see, I am sure Inakadate will be completely buried in snow in no time. But today was the first!
