Climbing Myoujingatake

Starting at Daiyuzan


We climbed a lot of steps

tengu and Jamesu

sneaked passed the scary guardians of the mountain
at Daiyuzan

found fungi

and snow
pine cone

and more snow
snowy path

and Fuji-san! This is the 4th time we have done this route, but the only time we have had a really clear view of Fuji-san from the top.

Down in Hakone, an onsen and then a beer. No photo of the former, unfortunately so you will have to imagine the beautiful naked ladies relaxing together in a steamy pond surrounded by trees.

It has been sometime I had an Asahi, I remember spending one year in Japan at Yamagata and almost every night or other night having Asahi beer except the winter which we had Sake in the company apartment. But truly the different seasons of Japanese temples are great places to find peace, and not just the temple but the environment and steps leading to the temple; one can find true inner peace, in my opinion !
Thank you for that memory !

Hi I'm trying to find information about this hike, as I'm trying to find a moderate day hike to do while I'm in Tokyo in the near future. Could you tell me is this hike possible to do near the end of march or will it be too cold or snowy even? Do you know how long the trail is and how steep the climbing is? Is the trail well marked and easy to follow? Any help you could provide would be awesome. thanks! -Mike

As you can see, it was not too snowy in February. We wore winter gear; you might get by with a little less in March. For finding the way, I'm not sure if you will think it easy or not- iirc the only tricky bit is climbing your way through the temple grounds and then heading up the hill at the back. After that it's easy - just a steep climb straight up to the ridge and down wherever you fancy.
