The road of God

[September 21st to 22nd, 2015, President of Japan System Bank Co., Ltd, Mr. Nosaka went Mt. Tateyama climbing. <The 2nd day> ]

Sep. 22, at 6:40, we left from Raichozawa. Going through his favorite route, “The road of God” to get to Mt. Oyama ( main peak of Mt. Tateyama). This area used to be a part of “Zenjodo (a path for mountain worship)”. Around every August, there are always many different colors of alpine plants here.


Ascent of Oyama peak

The peak of Oyama is almost there. We climbed up on the pile of rocks.

Summit of Oyama peak

There is Mine-honsha shrine which is one of Oyama shrines. Mine-honsha is located on rocks on the peak of Oyama. We did not pray there this time and we went ahead.

After passing Onanji peak (3,015m) and Fuji-no-oritate peak (2,999m), we walked down to a col before Mt. Masago-dake. And then from there, we went down on the road called “Ohashiri” (great running road) to go back to Raichozawa. We reached there at 12:10.

It was such a beautiful day and we enjoyed the superb view.
