A scenery of Mt.Fuji from Mt.Jimba

I walked on Mt. Jimba again, but used the reverse mountain path. I used a bus from Takao Station of JR Chuo line to Jimba Kogenshita. At the Takao Station, a bus stop was too crowded by many mountain walkers, so the extra bus was added at 8:30am. A walk to the summit of Mt. Jimba was easy from bus stop. It took about 70minutes with 4.9km. At Mt. Jimba, I saw many mountain walkers.

But a view of Mt.Fuji from Kobotoke Pass was excellent. I could see Sagamiko Lake with Mt.Fuji together.

It was very crowded with bus and taxi. The bus station to Jimba Kogensita is located about the center of the picture.
(Right) A destination board was hanging from a roof of the station. You will find a destination name to Jimba Kogenshita(陣馬高原下) on the bottom of the hanging board. I guess that many climber would be surging to the bus terminal in a holiday because the bus access is once a hour. If you want to seating on the bus, you should be arrived at the bus terminal at least before 20minutes. The bus time table to Jimba Kogenshita on a holiday is 8:50, 9:50, 10:50, 11:50.
The URL of the bus time table is the next.

I could see a wonderful view of Mt.Fuji and Sagami Lake. There was a mountain path to Sagami Lake from Kobotoke Pass, and the path will be connected to the Sagami Station of JR Chuo Line. It was a very interesting route, so I was puzzled by a prepared route.
