One of the places we visited in Hakone was the Sengokuhara Japanese Pampas Grass Field. The fields are 180,000 square of grass with a promenade running through the middle.  On the day we visited the sunlight was streaming through trees on the mountain side and across the tops of the tall grass.

The Japanese pampas grass was planted for the use in thatching a roof  and cattle feed in the Edo era. It was a cropsthat made an important income for the region. Today the pampas grass fields have become a special district of the Fuji-Hakone-Izu National Park.

All the images were shot on the Fujifilm X-T2 fitted with the XF50-140mm f2.8 lens.
