Kawai Station -> Mt.Otuka -> Mitakesan -> Okunoin -> Mt.Hinode -> Hinatawada Station

I walked up Okunoin in Mitake Shrine at January 10th. It was a fine weather, but it was chilly at the mountain path. Near the Okunoin had a remaining snow slightly a few days before.
I could see a wonderful view from the summit of Okunoin, and a wonderful panoramic view from the summit of Hinode Mountain. Especially, I thought a view of the east direction from Hinode Mountain was a splendid spectacle. I could see far Tokyo and Yokohama buildings from Hinode Mountain. I went down to Hinatawada Station.
I walked about 21.7km ( about 6hr40min (included a little intermission for lunch near the Mitake Shrine).
