05秋季日本行(第二天富士山河口湖) Japan Trip 05 (Day II Lake Kawaguchi)

搭上古典公車,不消幾站就到了香草館。下了車以後,原本還在納悶湖在哪裡,頭一轉,往旁邊的停車場看過去,傳說中的河口湖就在那裡靜靜地等著我們。
We took the bus and arrived the Herb-kan after a few stops. Getting off the bus, I was wondering where the lake is. Turning my head and looking toward the parking space beside me, the legendary Lake Kawaguchi was waiting for us.

我們往湖邊走了過去,看到了一條沿著湖邊蜿蜒而去的步道,決定順路往旁邊的公園走一走。天色已晚,湖邊景色配上日暮低垂時分的色調,煞是美麗。走著走著,過了個彎,伴著殘霞的富士山突然映入眼簾。我和嫂子看到了可以下到水邊沙灘的樓梯,急忙跳了下去,自顧自地拍起照來,眼前的美景,第一次讓我有了不虛此行的感受。
We walked toward the lake and saw a passage along the lakeside. So we decided to walk around the lake for a while. It was late afternoon and the color of sunset made it a beautiful view to enjoy. Following the curve, the Fujiyama came into my eyes. We went down to the beach and started photographing. It’s the very first time that I felt it’s worthy of all the efforts to come here.

瞬息萬變的日落雲彩,讓我們深怕錯過了什麼好鏡頭,竟然讓我和嫂子在湖邊各自拍了不下三十張照片。照到過癮以後,我的注意力轉到了一旁靜謐的公園。秋天的日本,有著蕭瑟卻溫暖的顏色,在這座種滿銀杏樹的公園裡更是顯露無遺。秋黃的銀杏配上楓紅點綴與綠松蒼翠,公園中央的雕像似乎是畫蛇添足了。
The colors of the sky kept changing and we’re so afraid to have missed some nice shots. We both took more than thirty photos here. After I photographed to my heart’s content, my attention was then drawn to the quiet garden beside the lake. Autumn in Japan has a very sad but warm color. This park of gingko trees can show it to the fullest. The autumny gingko yellow with maple red and pine green, the statue in the center of the garden seems redundant.

時間就這麼過去了,天色已經暗到再也照不出什麼好照片來了,加上湖面寬廣,竟也帶來了些許寒意,在等公車的同時,我們決定走進香草館,邊取暖邊殺時間。
Time flies. The night fell and we couldn’t have any nice photo taken with that dark light. We also started to feel chilly. So we decided to go into the Herb-kan while waiting for the bus, to warm up and kill time.

傍晚六點,我們回到了河口湖車站。湯瑪士火車已經在月台裡等待,離開車還有好一段時間,卻也讓嫂子能夠好好地用相機和錄影機把這輛火車給拍個透徹。這下子總算是趁了芊的意了。
It’s 6pm that we went back to the Kawaguchiko Station. The Thomas Train was waiting already, though it’d only leave half hour later. We’ve got plenty of time taking photos and videos of the train. Chien was finally satisfied.

富士山好美
有如到了仙境一般

富士山是有名的觀光區,可惜上次無福至那裡去,我記得很多照片都是覆蓋一層白雪。妳們耶誕節計劃好了嗎?

Jessie,
真的是很美, 我想哪天如果真的去登富士山, 又是另一種感受吧! 那才真的是到了仙境 :-)

LJ,
我日本也去了不少次, 真的到了可以看到富士山的地方, 充其量也不過是山腳!?哪天有機會還真想去爬一爬哩!
至於聖誕節, 我們也沒什麼計劃. 一方面是兩個人都工作滿檔(做free lance是沒有假期可言的), 一方面也是不想在大家都放假的時候跑出門. 大概就是聖誕節當天家人聚一聚吧!
