The Japanese word “zekkei” means superb view. For example, great landscapes, beautiful moments of nature, and the like.
I love zekkei. I also like traveling, and its main purpose is to encounter magnificent scenery. However, the spectacular view is not always seen when you go there.
The view from Mt.Oku-hotaka is posted on this page. Mt.Oku-hotaka is the highest mountain in North Alps of Japan and the third highest mountain in Japan. And it is popular among Japanese climbers.
I have been to the summit of Mt.Oku-hotaka three times. However, the first and second times were covered in fog and I couldn’t see 10 meters away. The third time I was able to see wonderful landscape.
The details at that time are written on this page.
I would like to continue my journey to meet the spectacular scenery. I want to travel not only in Japan but also abroad after COVID-19. And I hope to take fantastic landscape photos, spherical panoramic photos and videos and post them on this website.
And I’d like to say in self-introduce, “I’m a zekkei hunter.”
By the way, the pronunciation of “zekkei” is not [zecki:]. If you say like this, most Japanese won’t be able to understand it. Probably, if you pronounce like “zec-K”, it will be closer to Japanese pronunciation.
see you. Shimo-san
