Tanzawa Mountain Tour
Hinokihoramaru is a rare independent mountain that stands tall as the proud head of Nishitanzawa among the Tanzawa Mountains. The mountain is known for its especially thick beech forest, widespread veratrum plants, and clusters of rhododendron flowers that create a distinct deep-mountain-like atmosphere, which is very unlikely given the mountain’s elevation (5,350ft / 1,600m). “Kaminokawa Hütte”, a lodge located at the entrance of the mountain trail, has a “Goemonburo (bath heated directly from the bottom)”, and an indoor bath (heated with firewood).
Located on the border of Sagamihara-shi and Ashigara-shi, it is designated as Tanzawa-Oyama Quasi-National Park. Photos Provided by photolibrary.
