Hike on Mt. Kintoki in Hakone

hike on mount kintoki

Hi there, it’s Mr. Wada back on duty. I would like to share our hiking on Mt. Kintoki this time.

Mt. Kintoki was named after Kintaro (Kintaro was made based on a real person named Sakata no Kintoki). Well, Kintaro is a fairly tale like Momotaro. He grew up in the mountain and defeated all strong animals in the mountain by sumo…I think that’s what the story is about.

This Mt. Kintoki lays near Fujimi-chaya that I’ve previously introduced. We weren’t in mountain gears though we tried to take a hike…..let’s see how it tunred.

 

Hike on Mt. Kintoki

There’s entrance to Mt. Kintoki across Fujimi-chaya. Watch out many cars pass this road (speeding).

Full of energy and excitement! Here we come!!!!!

 

After several minutes. Drained….

 

Still long way to go….

 

It turned windy and cloudy….

 

 

At the Top of Mt. Kintoki

We made it to the top! It took us about an hour.

It is supposed to be like this on a sunny day. Well, there’s nothing we can do with the weather right?

from Wikipedia

 

There are two places to eat on top. One is this Kintato-chaya.

On the Way Back

Now what? We gotta go back. We chose another route on the way back. It was still foggy but it kinda looked mysterious.

 

The Kintoki shrine is waiting at the end. I’m glad we made it back!

 

Lastly

How do you find it? It’s a little tough work but it feels quite something when we get to the top. I would still recommend it. However, make sure you are well-prepared for it. Get proper gears.

See you around!

Hola. It’s Mr. Wada back on duty. Mount Fuji represents Japan as the highest mountain in the country, which is located through Yamanashi and Shizuoka prefectures. Climbing Mt. Fuji would be quite a challenge. However, there is a great place to see beautiful views of Mt. Fuji called Otome Toge Fujimi-chaya.

Tea Time with Amazing View

Shall we grab something? We got some tea and dango. Looks like it’s all home-made. Yummers.

 

View through the window. Amazing isn’t it? Well, clouds are covering the top though it’s still something.

 

However, I can’t believe it, only within 60 minutes it turned dark like this. I suppose the weather is quite unpredictable in the mountains. I feel we were kinda lucky that we came in early.

 

Lastly

It’s absolutely worth a visit for views of Mt. Fuji. If you are in Hakone, I highly recommend to take a visit to Otome Toge Fujimi-Chaya since it’s really an easy access with amazing view.

See you around!
