Mountain Day in Niseko Japan

Today in Japan we have a new public holiday called ‘Mountain Day’. So to celebrate this new public holiday it seemed appropriate to shoot dawn over our favourite mountain this morning. We hope that where ever you are you get the chance to “appreciate blessings from mountains”

 
In May 2014 it was announced that Mountain Day will start being celebrated as a public holiday every August 11, beginning in 2016. Supporters of the holiday included legislator Seishiro Eto and the Japanese Alpine Club.[8] The legislation states that the holiday is to provide “opportunities to get familiar with mountains and appreciate blessings from mountains.”
