Hiking Haiku




lofty peak beckons
rising steeply to goal
marvel at scene


手招きの峰に到達絶景や

てまねき の みね に とうたつ ぜっけい や




Hiking is an activity that is as much about the trip as the goal. The experience of beginning at the bottom of a tough trail only to conquer the obstacle and reach the goal at the top is extraordinary. However, it is rivaled by the satisfaction of the journey to include the magnificent views on the way up as well as the brilliant landscape discovered at the top.



ハイキングは、自分の計画したルートを走破すると云う目的だけでなく、そのみちのりでの活動と云うことでもあります。急勾配の山道を麓から歩き始めて、頂上を極める体験は素晴らしいの一言です。しかし、山道を一歩一歩、歩く途中で発見する素晴らしい眺めは、頂上に立って発見する絶景に匹敵します。
