Hinatawada St.- Mt. Mimuro - Mt. Hinode - Mt. Mitake - Mitake St.

I walked Mt. Hinode and Mt. Mitake again. Trekking_route_from_hinatawada_to_m Please look at the former mountain walk, too. At Mt. Hinode and around Mt. Mitake, I saw many persons. In a narrow path, I had to wait a ascending person frequently.

A sightseeing from Mt. Hinode was beautiful than my last visit because today was a little good weather. I could see Mt. Odake clearly and Mt. Otuka (north of Mt. Mitake) was a little difficult. But I could not see Mt. Fuji in a mist.

Dscf2098sDscf2124sI thought that the Ayahirono-Taki waterfall and a following Rock Garden was a really beautiful place which were not visited last time. I took a lot of pictures around the areas.

Dscf2249s A sightseeing from the Cable Car Station was a little good. I saw a misty Kanto Plain.
I walked from Cable Car Station to JR Mitake Station after got off the ropeway. I thought that I walked too much today.

If you have a interest to my walk plan. Please look at the next URL. It will show you the route. I uploaded the route plan to ALPSLAB route. Regarding route from Rock Garden to Nanayono-Taki (七代ノ滝), I transcribed the location from my GPS trekking data. The GPS accuracy was in very bad condition because of valley walk. So, the accuracy of the route will be not worth believing.
