  • From on high-altitude climb on foot, the aim here. That's certainly skillful people in mountainous areas aiming at hodaka here. Is the origin of the name famous novelist late on Akutagawa Ryunosuke's "novel: Kappa" in that there was a reason. There is a Memorial Hall to the right of the bridge, was the classic traveller here across the other side shore in the Azusa River now walk in front and back. A hot spring along the way will bring their own towels and good.
