Two-Day Driving Course Through Ashigara: Where City Life, Nature, and Culture Meet

Ashigara Area Multi day 1

Exit at Shin-Hadano Interchange on the Shin-Tomei Expressway and drive through the city center to "Hadano Jibasanzu", where you'll find a variety of local specialties. After, continue on to enjoy the city's scenery and visit the area's representative power spots and herb gardens. The first day ends with a stop at Lake Tanzawa, selected as one of the 50 most scenic spots in Kanagawa, and a drive along lush green roads to "Only~yu~". Soak in the open-air and rock baths and let your body and soul be healed. The second day starts at Saijyo-ji Temple, where you will be greeted by a row of cedar trees over 500 years old. Drive down the mountain into the peaceful atmosphere of the city towards me-byo valley BIOTOPIA. Once you've refreshed yourself in the forest, drive through the city again in the direction of Nakai. After paying a visit to a historic shrine and taking a break at a local café, enter the Tomei Expressway at the Hadano Nakai Interchange and drive home safely.
