Getting There

There is a toilet near the peak of mitsutouge!

On the way back you could also take the cable cart down from tenjo mountain, but since descending the last part by foot doesnt take that long and is fairly easy id opt with that one.

Total travel time is about 7 hours, starting at Mitsutouge Station and end at Kawaguchigo. For more detailed information about route, please visit https://en.japantravel.com/yamanashi/climbing-mount-mitsu-touge/2057

Lovely views throughout the climb. Canopy provides nice shade for the warmer days. Some points can get pretty steep. Perfect balance between challenging and rewarding. Keep an eye out for boars and snakes!

We left our car at the train station and hiked from point to point. I didn’t start recording until one or 2 miles of walking to the city. The trail was beautiful in this late March and in great condition. There is a steep Rocky is sent that was free of snow. It took somewhere around three hours to get to the peak. Downhill was much faster after walking the Ridgeline. The Ridgeline was very enjoyable as well as seeing the views of Fugi on the ascent and the ridge. Snow was a delight at the peak! The hat was closed, but there were two vending machines. We grabbed cokes from one, decided to wait on the beer machine – Ha! We had a six and eight-year-old with us. We started at 11 AM and finished at 5:45. We stopped for a sugar break at the peak. So enjoyable! Enjoy!

Superb views! Easy to get to and very very beautiful! Some parts of the trails are rather narrow and the bridge youd have to cross is a bit run down but other than that super beautiful! Don't forget to study the map so you dont take a wrong turn or else youll end up somewhere completely else! Lots of views of mount fuji along the trail and the surrounding mountains!
