It was a beautiful day in May, but the weather of May sometimes changes easily. I was lucky I could see a beautiful Mt.Fujji.

My Impression
The access to the entrance point of Mitsutoge mountain by the usage of the public trains is not so convenient without express trains. It was because the train that I used in this time was almost local train but had no rapid service train. So it takes long time by using train.
In addition, on the Fujuikyuko Line, their railway ticket systems have still not changed to digital ticket system. I could not use Suica card despite the same JR train was connected through service with Fujikuko Line. If you keep ride onto the same train at Otsuki station, at the Mitsutoge station, then you have to prepare of your ticket fee checkout.

I checked the trek time on this route will be 7hours from the internet. So, I made a plan on this information. But it was not so difficult mountain trail, so it took about 5hours by my foot. Without a rope way, I arrived at Kawaguchiko Station about 14:20pm.
The direction board to the destination "Mitsutoge(三つ峠)" was clear but wrote in Japanese.
I guess that the mountain road was a good condition to walk. I think the path had a few number of plasticated steps from Mitsutoge Station to Tenjosan Park Kachikachi-yama Ropeway terminal station. The mountain path from Mitsutoge mountain to Tenjosan Park Kachikachi-yama Ropeway terminal station was basically smooth downhill ridge path, so I felt it was very easy to walk, and walked very fast. On this downhill, I felt little shock to my knee.

Information
The toilet at the Mitsutoge Station is the end of platform near the ticket gate.
Near the top of Mt.Mitsutoge, I found many good rest spots to take a lunch against a background of Mt.Fuji.
