Beautiful trail through the mountains that follows an old Japanese police route from 80+ years ago. Steep climbs on both ends (particularly from the east/south trail head) with a ridge running/contouring trail in the middle. Fantastic overlooks into and across the mountains and you also walk through 3 ruins from old settlements of the natives (these are not particularly impressive, but have informative signs). Parts of the trail are narrow and steep and require the use of chains/ropes that have been installed for this purpose. Nothing technical but some careful footwork is needed.
