Mt. Mitake Hiking

Mt. Mitake, a mountain of faith that has been revered as a sacred mountain since ancient times. It is also known as a treasure trove of wild birds, insects, and plants. In the summer, head to the rock garden where a clear stream flows through the moss-covered rocks in search of coolness. In autumn, you can listen to the cries of the kantan, the queen of the insects, and in autumn, you can enjoy the rich nature of the four seasons, from children to the elderly. It is widely popular as a mountain that can be made.

You can reach the Mitake-san station by cable car, then you can enjoy hiking for 1 hour return to shrine, or for about 4 hours in one lap through shrines, waterfalls, and rock gardens.
