Mt. Kintoki, Kanagawa

During the pandemic, our family climbed Mt. Kintoki in Kanagawa, since we are asked not to move across the prefecture lines.








I tried to do this in 2019, when I was recovering from my injury of my left arm with Tomoe, the white dog.
I could not take her to the top, since one part of the path have big gap requiring rope. I had to have someone else to hoist her. Unfortuantely, I was myself, and Tomoe didn't seem to be enthusiastic about the adventure.


This time, we are with Aisu who experience hiking for the first time.
I think he did Okay, but still over excited and not quite manageable at all.

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

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
