Inukoeji (Dog summiting path) in Tanzawa 丹沢の犬越路 with Dog

We climbed up Inukoeji (Dog summiting path) where the army of Takeda clan used to march for the purpose of military attack back in the 16th century. Takeda clan used military dogs, so we took our dog too... well, we always take our dog to trek anyway.

The path has paved road used for lumberjack business even now. Motor vehicles need to have a permit to pass, but pedestrians can use anytime. Having said that, I wouldn't use this path after dark. 
The place is quite silent. They even have an 800m tunnel to connect to the other side of Tanzawa, West side of Tanzawa where holds massive Tanzawa Lake. That hollow existence adds creepiness to the whole path.


On the bright side (literally), at the top of the Inukoeji path is the peak of Oosugi-Maru. There is an evacuation hut and bathroom. I had a sweet bean bread for breakfast there. We did not go up to Mt. Omuro, but Mt. Fuji was partially visible from the path.

 We parked our car at Kannnogawa Hut. The parking is 300 yen. To loop back to the parking lot, we used a minor path, a steep ridge path without any signpost,  to go down. According to the West Tanzawa Map, it was about 700m to descend the minor path. I set my GPS watch to track the distance to descend for just in case we lost track. The path was buried with pine leaves, but clear enough to follow, especially for our dog who helped us to follow the path.


 After reaching the paved road, it was a quiet and easy road to walk down.
We stopped by Iyashi no yu to clean ourselves after this 5 hours of hike.

The straight line is where GPS could not track our walk in the tunnel.

発端状山@沼津 元ラブホに老母と宿泊w

  沼津の内浦湾に続く伊豆長岡三津線にぽつんとある ペットフレンドリーなホテルに年末年始泊まりました。 伊豆富士パノラマパーク でお昼。 老母がいるので、あまり歩き回らず、すぐにチェックインします。 ホテル自体はかび臭いし、ドアの横にはブレーカー機材がいちいちある。 ベッド周りの元ラブホっぽい機材が笑えます。 ホテルの周りには 廃トンネル と、 取り壊し中の廃ラブホ(旧:ホテル三津アイネ)があり、 新年からオカルトになりました。 大晦日はRIZINを見て、朝は初日の出を見ようと、発端状山に少し登りました。 しかし、意外とガッツリ登るコースでした。 全く登山の用意をしていなかったので 途中でひきかえしました。   途中でも、なかなかきれいな早朝の富士山は見れました。 そしてその後ろは、南アかな? 帰り道の、箱根ターンパイクからの富士山。 今年も安全登山でよろしくお願いします。

北岳

I started to consider climbing up a mountain in south Alps in Japan, right after I climbed Mt. Yari in 2018 . I could not accumplish that in 2019, due to my broken bone in my left arm. In 2020, the whole South Alps was closed due to Covid-19. This was the long-awaited chance to climb up Mt. Kita. 2018年、 北ア槍ヶ岳を登った 後、南アにも行きたくなった。2019年は骨折で断念。2020年はコロナで断念。今年こそは!と南ア北岳にお邪魔しました。 芦安駐車場  (Ashiyasu Parking lot) In the previous day of the climbing day, I drove to parking lot in Ashiyasu . Driving to this parking lot was scary because it is a drive alone in the narrow and dark mountain path. However, in the parking lot, there were many climbers already parking there in 10:30 pm. A morter cyclinst was even sleeping on the ground with sleeping bag. Oh, that looks cold. I wrapped into a blanket, slept while listening a ukrere sound, strum, strum, and strum.  前日10:30pm頃、 芦安駐車場 に着く。芦安に行くまでの道は暗くて狭くてかなり怖い。 しかし芦安第二駐車場に着いたら、多くの車が同じことやっていて安心した
