Trace the Footsteps of Ninomiya Sontoku: Sakawa River and Daruma Market

Western Area 5h 6

The clear water that springs up from Fuji Gotemba runs through Sakawa river. It carves gorges in the Tanzawa mountains, fertilizes the Ashigara Plain, and finally falls into Sagami Bay. This tour gives you an opportunity to explore along this beautiful Sakawa river and stop by at the row of pine trees which were first planted by famed Sontoku Ninomiya. The tour also takes you to the Daruma Doll Market.
