Hiking Adventure in Hadano

Monday, October 30th, 2023

It’s been ages since we tried to do some events all together. But finally, we’re trying to do that again!

Last Sunday, on October 22, 2023, three of us went by train to Hadano, a city about an hour away from Tokyo. We met up in Shinjuku around 10 in the morning and boarded the train, excited for a day of adventure!

After a quick break in a combini to grab some snacks and drinks, we headed to the trailhead. The trail was challenging right from the start (it was supposed to be easy!), with a steep climb up the mountainside. But we were determined to make it to the top and soon found ourselves surrounded by beautiful scenery.

The trail was well-maintained and easy to follow. We stopped frequently to rest and enjoy the view and had a lot of fun chatting and getting to know each other better.

After about two hours of hiking, we finally reached the summit of the mountain. We were rewarded with stunning views of the surrounding area, including Mount Fuji in the distance. Unfortunately, the top of Mount Fuji was covered in clouds, but it was still an amazing sight to see.

We spent some time at the summit, enjoying the view and taking pictures. Then, we moved on, continuing our road on the track. The goal was to reach Tsurumaki Onsen Station. Lots of (beautiful? interesting? big?) spiders to see in the forest, but the trail was definitely easier to follow as we were globally going down. Some treacherous passages were a nice excuse for more breaks.

Once out of the wood and back to the city, our trip almost had some urbex vibe to it!

Once at Tsurumaki, we rewarded ourselves with some delicious karaage! It was the perfect way to end a perfect day. The weather was perfect, and although we couldn’t have a perfect view on the Mount Fuji, it was overall sunny enough!
