An easy beginner hike on Makuyama

Western Area 5h30m

This course is suited to beginner hikers. It covers a distance of about 9.7 km and takes approx. 210 minutes (3.5 hours). The Makuyama course is great in spring, as it has not only ume (plum) blossoms, but also cherry blossoms that are sure to satisfy. From the peak, you’ll see commanding views of Sagami Bay. The slopes are gentle, making this perfect for novices.
