  • Mid-11, a 4-year-old son take the first climb was. At 7 in the morning to take Okutama central line of holiday Express from Shinjuku to mitake station. In autumn at Shinjuku already without seats. Before leaving the gate in mitake station drop off tourists, took about 10 minutes. Long lines a funicular line also line a bus station toilet. The lovely location deserves to go still. (By the way, to the funicular visitor center is located near the bus stop next to the eleven, there is vacant, is off the beaten path. ) Is the cable car down the paved from ontake shrine approach. From the road into the rock garden seems to be trekking trails. With stepping stones across the Wadden Sea river climbing big rocks to children and flying to the ups and downs, my son a little adventure was a fantastic fun. Rock Garden was crowded in the period, but very beautiful and brought tea and snacks to eat was the best! I would like to go in the spring.
