Trek : Hatonosu St. -> Mitakesan -> Hinodeyama -> Futamatao St.

I walked up to Mitake Shrine from Hatonosu Station at April 25th. It was a fine weather but not clear. I went to a bathroom beside the station to do my business. And started to walk. It was 10:15.
While the mountain path, there were few trekker. I wore a T-shirt under wool shirt. While walking, it was a good selection, but when I stopped walking a few minutes, I felt a little cold.
Almost all the mountain path from Hatonosu to Mitakesan was wide and excellent for walking. But sometimes, it was difficult to select the correct route. If you want to walk this path, you should memorize the Japanese Kanji word "御岳山".
I could see a wonderful panoramic view from the summit of Hinode Mountain. I could see far Tokyo buildings but it was not so clear because of spring haze. My first plan was to go down to Ikusabata Station. Though, I couldn't find the destination way to Ikusabata Station after the mountain path from Hinodeyama. I guess I passed over the sign or there was no indicator to Ikusabata Station.
I walked about 21.6km and took about 5hr20min ( It's included a little intermission for lunch at the Mitake Shrine).
