A walking road was keeping in good conditions. It was a good route and had a beautiful landscape. I was very satisfied the sight from Mt Hiwada (N35.893691, E139.304935). I carried a GPS (Garmin etrex Vista HCx) on this walking. From information of my GPS, I walked 17.3km. It took about 5hours ( I started walk at 9:00am from Higashi-moro station and arrived at JR-Komagawa station 14:00pm). My average walking speed was 4km/h. I took a lunch time about 20minute at Mt Monomi. I was not a good condition in my lower back, so I walked cautiously. It was a easy walking route. There is few shop to buy something to eat or drink. So, you should prepare meals or drinks before arriving at this area.
I attached few pictures around Mt Hiwada (日和田山) and the landscape of Koma City (高麗市). The wide picture was made as panoramic from a few pictures that I took. When you click on the picture, you can see on big scale.
Map; I used the Japan RoadNavi 25000 v2 produced by UUD Co.,Ltd. And I used GoogleMap to display my track data.
