The town is a summer resort, and there were a certain number of nice summer houses on the way, and finally I saw some nice colors!
Then I came upon the pond:
Very few people were walking there, and it was quite peaceful.
The evening was very clear, and I could see the mountains from my hotel window.
The next day I went to Haruna Jinja, on the slopes of Mount Haruna. The consensus was that it was too late in the season to go to Lake Haruna, and this was the alternative. I will post my pictures of it next.
