We should expect great views and an option for Onsen after. Our destination will be Iwato-yama, next to Atami and just below Hakone. If there has been heavy rain the day before or days before - only those with hiking shoes/boots will be allowed. It's a safety precaution given slippery slopes. Also please check into this site for any go or no go comments the night before.

I must also caution that this will be a very hot and humid time for this hike. I strongly suggest that you NOT come if you are not ready for the heat and humidity. This is a medium difficulty hike but for those not ready for it - it's not a good idea to come.

Here are the details:
Protected content

We start at almost sea level and the peak is Protected content . This is more than two Tokyo towers, but the trail is a long and steadily upwards climb.

Make sure you bring at least 2 liters of water and a bento. Hiking shoes and a hiking stick are recommended. Sunscreen and a backpack are also suggested along with any medication you normally take. For those not joining us at the meeting point- Protected content
