  • Kabutoyama climbed to the grave. Good weather and good feeling after a long hike. Back out in the kabutoyama forest park, walked in the route to Incheon station on the Hankyu. Plum is now flowers in full bloom, a cherry tree. And the Nightingale was singing and ate. It is spring!

  • Rugged mountains and mountain seems lost on the road to hike for beginners, not lead them, but kozan if guests can enjoy nature easily. Families visiting for the holidays and enjoy the nature in a few hours go by bus on the way to recommend as leisure.

  • Kabutoyama (kabutoyama) is a located in Hanshin between earlier than Kobe Rokko mountain. It's a mound of Nishinomiya City, whether or not the 200 m height. So this side of mostly small, medium, is people like students or a picnic. And climbing trees in mountain "dumb", not the plant. The Mongols made Cobb mountain in ancient times seismic upheaval phenomenon.
