The weather was gorgeous. Mt. Fuji was perfectly visible. However, the path was slippery and covered by piles of snow and ice. It was not the easiest run at all!
I need to note every time I run with other people, I feel like I prefer doing so myself. I can feel the nature better that way.
But I force myself to do so to keep myself somewhat social. :p
We ran to the entrance of the hiking route to Mt. Takamatsu, for 10-15 min. For walking, there are buses available, but it appeared to have a quite sparse time table.
I stopped by Sakura no Yu close to the Yamakita station. The place is run by the local government, and looking decent, serving to the local.
Also, the Gotenba line is a pretty local line, with a sparse timetable. I would recommend driving to Sakura no yu, and park there for your best convenience.
