Trek Plan with Kids from Mt.Mitake to Mt.Hinode on Saurday
I've a plan to walk with small kids on this Saturday.
The hiking route is about 3km(one-way) from Mitakesan ropeway terminal to Mt.Hinode. The mountain path has a little up/down hill but smooth for walk. I guess it needs about 1.5hour walk for small kids. If we take a lunch at the summit of the Hinode mountain, the time table of my recommendation will be the next lines.
We'll arrive at Mitake Station by Rapid Train from Shinjiku Station at 9:00am.
The bus to the Cablecar station will come at 9:05 or at 9:40.
It takes about 10minutes by bus to the terminal station of the cablecar.
The timetable of the cablecar is 9:15,9:30,9:45,10:00, ....
The departure time is every 15minutes on this timezone.
And after 2 to 3 minutes, we can arrive at the observation station near the top of Mt.Mitake.
So, we'll arrive about 10:00 at the starting point of the trek.
After that, we'll walk toward the summit of Mt.Hinodeyama.
I guess it takes about 1hour and 30minutes walk by kids, so we'll arrive at the destination about 11:30am. We'll take a lunch at the top of Mt.Hinode.
We'll back to walk to the cablecar station after some brakes.
If the kids still have a power of walking, we'll stop off somewhere on the way to the cablecar station. Somewhere we visit is ... for example, a waterfall or Mitake Shrine.
