  • It is so bad access from Japan is not known, in various levels of high tourist attraction. 回remasenn not a walk. I saw the appearance of a Westerner, but we only had the Japanese.

  • There's no words to explain this beautiful landscape. I can only tell you so much about Valley, pretty much. Can come up with cable car or hike. On the day we went with cloudy weather and after the rain. But not bad, still the landscapes are beautiful. And don't forget to bring good shoes for walking.

  • 1000s of steps to climb. No trails. Some food is available up the mountain. Climbers, be aware of the decent/ how you will return back. You can get in big trouble if you do not have a well planned return back. The lift down stops early (check the time). If you are headed down late in the day on foot, take a flash light. Take any phone numbers you can find. Last bus departure time is posted - check this before you climb. Be very very very patient -typical lines everywhere. Going down can be hard on your knees - wear good shoes.
  • One of the most amazing places I have explored. Would love to go back.
  • You need to walkr a lot, but you can take the cable car as an alternative. Een though I am german they accepted my student ID and i got a discount. The view is amazing. But dont buy food here. Its too expensive, the taste is horrible. But if you bring food and water a long its amazing :)
  • One of the most intensely spiritual spots on the face of the planet, it takes all day for pilgrims to climb the steps up to the tip where a former monastery was built centuries ago. Breathtaking views await...
  • Stunning, spectacular, amazing natural beauty. Heavenly place for me! I will go again and stay longer.
