    Round trip from meidaimae in 3-4 hours to eat dumplings and noodles, enjoy the 10-minute. Block before 2:00 PM at after dark. Rode the lift no. 1 road to climb down the No. 4 road, returned. Evening rain, so was the opposite, one might be. No. 1 road have been paved, was no problem either light or sandals. Not tired of attractions, such as gate, lantern, Temple and enjoy. During Maple "and" in the Tororo Soba I had. Uneven thickness, such as noodles, the buckwheat. In front of the gate of the temple. Dining is number from the near the temple which I got off the lift, cable and one much to the Summit. Takao Yamaguchi station also near shops and souvenir shops, were selling as well as Bento (had sold) No. 4 road and stairs drove a mountain of old, like some dirt path is. I thought this is good hiking shoes. Suspension bridge except such as this one was green with good feeling. Lift and cable car one way 480 yen, round trip as in 930 yen, lifts to the return cable car is OK. Chairlift season is final is 16:30. Cable car is is up to 21. So can that come back to dine in the beer garden. So crowded was not. I thought I come so easy to enjoy, without fatigue also is also returning.

Many students from this Summit, in wait for passing of dozens of people waiting for pretty much used the time.
