    Maybe there should be a "No Google" clause
    I put in 'port with deer statue and old fort" and this was the first hit

    as always though the net proved instructive

    ....brought deer to the island to rid it of snakes.!!?..pity didn't work in Australia , seems to have worked well in NZ though.

    Where the statues are is supposedly where the feet of the Collosus of Rhodes stood.

    I'm 98% sure the top you see there is the highest lifted point of any ski resort in Japan. (2307m)

    From Yokohama to there by train, then bus would be about 4 hours.

    By car would be around the same....

    It's 2m higher than Shibutouge [​IMG]
    You'd know this if you've ever tried to skate from the top of Shibutouge.

    (although both are listed as the same at Snow Japan, but others list it as 2307m)

    Correct!!!! [​IMG]

    Some list Yokoteyama as 2305m some as 2307m. However, as I mentioned, if Shibutouge is 2305m, then Yokoteyama is a fraction higher, because you can ski down to the top of Shibutouge from Yokoteyama. (about 40m away)

    There are many orange poles.
    There are also other coloured ones.
    Meditating on this is/ is not a useful thing.
    I get 2 or 4 hours start off work than most of you guys. That's my excuse.
    It's not Rusutsu.

    There need to be clues.

    If you heavily crop the shot, then all you can see is snow, a rider and a few trees. No landmarks to enable people to recognise them, so it's just a guess.

    If you look at the shot I posted, it's got just about the whole mountain in it.

    Can you post a less cropped version?

    Yes, but look at the right side of the pic, follow the line and it's one of the 863 unlifted mountains of Japan.
