This picture was taken from behind Kamihayakawa Elementary School in the Upper Hayakawa region. The snow was very deep this day, but the clear weather gave an excellent view of the Kubiki Mountains, including the active volcano Mt. Yakeyama.
Mt. Yakeyama is easily recognizable by its prominent height (2400m) and clear, conical shape. To its left, closer to the center of the photograph, is the widely sloped Mt. Hiuchiyama (2461m).
