Mt. Hiwada is a 305-meter-high mountain that is known as the symbol of Hidaka City in Saitama prefecture. There is the option to choose a harder course, Otoko zaka, or an easier course, Onna zaka when hiking up this mountain. You will pass through two torii (traditional Japanese shrine gates) and an actual shrine on the way to the top. It takes one hour to get to the nearest train station, Koma Station(高麗駅), followed by a 20-minute walk to get to the trailheads. From the starting point to the top will take about one hour.
