I'm falling behind in my posts. I still have to finish my series about our excursion to Hakone and Kamakura. Then there was the lantern festival at Kashima Shrine during which I was hit by a tree full of lanterns, and a fantastic air show at Hyakuri Air Base we went to on the 9th of September. Not to mention a new Fiji post. Whew.
I'd better get caught up soon, because on the 16th of this month I'll be taking pics of some of the over 100 classic cars which will come through Kashima City during the four day "La Festa Mille Miglia" - Japan's version of the famous Italian race/rally which was first held in 1925. Mille Miglia is Italian for "1000 miles". This is the 1oth year for Japan's rally and the cars date from 1924 to 1967 - all classics, no replicas allowed. More about that after the event.
Meanwhile, here are some pictures I took yesterday while cycling down by lake Kitaura. I hope you enjoy them even half as much as enjoyed taking them. Most can be enlarged by clicking on them.
