Kanagawa

Kanagawa prefecture’s Mt. Oyama has long been revered as a holy mountain. It rises to 1,252 meters in height but is known as an easy mountain to hike. Simply take a bus from the nearest station, Isehara, to the cable bus stop from where you can journey to the hiking trailhead. On the way to the top, there is a spot called “Fujimi-dai," which offers the best views of Mt. Fuji, the highest mountain in Japan. It’s even better than the view of Mt. Fuji from the top of Mt. Oyama, so don’t forget to check it out when you pass this point! From Tokyo to Isehara station is 1.5 hours and the hike to the top takes about two hours.

    Do not go during the weekends as it could get very crowded. My family went on a Thursday and had a slow and easy time. Saw lots of Japanese elderly hiking too.
