Beautiful hike! The path is mostly paved so it’s an easy walk.

Nice quick break from the city if you're in the area. Shame about the sheer quantity of people there taking away from the serenity.

Hiking

I only wish I gave myself more time to spend on this trail!  This trail is easy and shorter in length as recorded. However, if you are adventurous and sure-footed, there are plenty of opportunities to explore different side paths leading to rocky scrambles, hidden outlooks, and tranquil tidepools. I started from the south because of proximity to the train station. There is a bus stop close to the northern end of the trail, but you need to get the timing right. The southern end of the trail features the iconic suspension bridge, and is significantly busier than the northern end. In the gorge below the bridge were many rock climbers all geared up scaling the cliffs.  Also on the southern end there is an easy access to some tidepools, if you're okay with steep steps of natural rock. There are other opportunities throughout, but they are less human-friendly. Dozens of fishermen could be seen along the coast, casting off the rocky edges just above the water. Even when the ocean is out of sight, the crashing waves remain in earshot. There are plaques throughout the hike in Japanese and English explaining the geologic history of the Jogasaki coast, adding some context to the hike. The violent volcanic rock alongside the soft forest and steady ocean waves makes this hike unforgettable.

Fantastic, physically challenging hike with great views of Mt Fuji and Hakone. If doing the hike in the morning, I recommend going from East to West so that the sun's behind you, and you have a view of Fujisan for most of the hike. Regardless of time, I recommend taking the extra leg up to Mt Kintoki. It's right off this recorded route, is a great climb, and has fantastic views. Although, on a Saturday around noon, it got congested on the way to the top (speed of advance slowed to those ahead of you) and congested at the top. There's a small restaurant selling ramen and a restroom charging 100¥ at the top of Mt Kintoki. Other than the Mt. Kintoki leg, the trail was lightly trafficked. The altitude gain and length of the hike make it difficult, but there are few technical aspects to the trail--not much scrambling or rope grabbing necessary. Most of the hike is either through a densely wooded forest, or a dense bamboo forest. There are many views of the volcanic activity at Fuji Izu Hakone, and a few good views of Fujisan. The trail gets muddy after a rain, but still doable.

I This is a nice mountain to hike for a daytrip out of Tokyo. The most popular route via the Kawanori Bridge that passes by a waterfall was closed so went up from Okutama station via Honita-san. The ascend is very steep so I definitely recommend this way and then descend via Kori station, which has a more gentle descent. The forests are quite nice, too. This route takes about 7-8h.

It was an amazing trail with the sound of the ocean and walking through the forest. Easy hike for beginners like me! Make sure to carry enough water to last the trail .

The mount Tanzawa is a wonderful hike but i dont recomend climb the mount in the winter if you dont have necessary equipments for hike in the snow. Dont have too much hikers in the trail in the winter.
