Mt Takamatsu, Tanzawa (w/ Seven Hills Adventure)

Mt. Takamatsu (801m)    I participated in Seven Hills Adventure tour again.
  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.

Asahina Path, with family (husband, black dog and white dog)

This was the training walk and car ride for our new puppy who still suffers motion sickness in the car. Due to the damage from the typhoon in September 2019, the path was filled with fallen trees. We could managed to reach Kumano shrine, but we would recommend all visitors to wear hiking shoes. The puppy enjoyed the path, though.  waiting for young brother...

3 hours: short hiking for my senior sister dog: San-No-To (三の塔、犬のため)

Summary: Hi, people. Please keep a leash on your dog. That's the way in Japan now. My long time running pal, Tomoe the Kishu dog has been depressed for a while, and has been stressed out, because of the introduction of this puppy to our household. To make her feel better, I decided to have a short hiking trip of only 3 hours solely  for her. Not with the Kishu & Kai mix boy puppy above, since he is too young, and vaccination to prepare for mountain hike has not completed yet. We arrived Yabitsu peak parking lot at 7:00 AM. I could not take photos, but on the way driving up there, the morning sunshine shed between trees is so beautiful and breathtaking.  I thought we should have come over an hour earlier, so that we can see the sunrise in the course instead. The most popular course in Tanzawa "Omote ridge line" is still covered with snow, so crampons are absolutely needed. Yabitsu Peak From the San-no-tou The public bathrooms in the beg
