Hakone Mt. Kintoki and Sengokuhara, pampas grassland Trekking Tour
We will climb Mount Kintoki (1212m), the highest peak in Hakone and full of legends. The top of Mount Kintoki also offers the best views of Mount Fuji.
This course is recommended for those who are not satisfied with Mt. Takao and are willing to enjoy more of Japanese nature.
We will depart from Shinjuku by bus at 7:00 a.m. and enjoy climbing Mt. Kintoki for the next 3 hours.
Mt. Fuji is closed from November to April due to snow accumulation. In contrast, this trekking route is open almost all year round.
Mt. Kintoki is said to be the birthplace of Kintoki Sakata, a samurai hero whose story was told in a children's book, and there are still historical sites remained on the mountain. There are stores and restrooms at the summit.
At the Hakone Wet Flower Garden, visitors will see beautiful wildflowers from Hakone and other parts of Japan.
WHAT YOU CAN EXPECT
For more than 400 years, mountainous Hakone was the most difficult part of the Tokaido Highway, a land transportation route that connected Edo (modern-day Tokyo) with Kyoto. Today, however, Hakone is only 90 minutes away from the capital and is easily accessible by bullet train, private express train, and highway bus.
Despite its proximity to one of the biggest cities in the world, Hakone is also a global geopark with a rich natural environment, and its unique volcanic terrain and verdant mountains mean it is home to a number of endemic plants and animals.
In addition to the lush atmosphere, there are many sightseeing attractions in the area including sightseeing boats that run along Lake Ashi and a ropeway near the sulphureous vents of Owakudani Valley, as well as many cultural facilities such as art museums and golf courses.
It takes about 1 hour and 45 minutes to climb up Mt. Kintoki and 1 hour and 15 minutes for descending.
