Trek from Yorii Station to Kanetsukidou Mountain

I walked up Kanetsukidou Mountain (H=330.2m) at January 8th. It was a fine weather, so I could see a wonderful panoramic view from the summit of the mountain. Especially, I thought a view of the south east direction was a splendid spectacle. I could see Yorii City and far Shinjyuku buildings from the mountain. I went down to Shourinji Temple. On the mountain path near the temple, I saw a lot of luohan statue along the side of the mountain path. It was called Gohyaku Rakan(五百羅漢). Each statue was not so big but I thought these were well worth seeing.
I started to walk from Yorii Station of the terminal station of Tobu Ikebukuro line. I walked about 10km. It needed about 2hours35minutes that included a little intermission for lunch at Kanetsukidou Mountain.
