Shonandaira hills (Kanagawa)

I went to Shonandaira hills because I wanted to see Mt.Fuji closely.
I got off at Oiso Staton.
Course : Shonandaira hills – Mt.Asama – Mt.Yatawara – Mt.Koma – Takaku Jinja shrine – Hiratsuka Hachimangu shrine – Hiratsuka Station.

I began to walk, then I found a shrine.

Mitake Jinja shrine (御嶽神社)

Once I find a torii, I cannot help go through 😀

Lunch time with Mt.Fuji viewing

Well, go ahead. To Mt.Asama.
But I found a noticeable sign. I went down by the sign.Then I reached at…..

Yokokuji Yato Oketsubogun (Yokokuji Yato tunnel tombs 揚谷寺谷戸横穴群) 
Yokokuji Yato Oketsubogun (Oiso)

It is a tomb in Kofun period.
It is said that ancient people used the valley as graveyard.

Something made me feel uneasy walking by myself 🙁 .

At Mt.Asama, I couldn’t find first order triangulation point.
“Here is top ?”, “I don’t know.”, “Do you know where is the signboard or triangulation point ?”, “No.”

I walked through Mt.Yatawara. Then I reached to top of Mt.Koma.
In the old days, there was a Takaku jinja shrine here.

I dropped in at Hiratsuka Hachimangu shrine before taking onsen bath.
Somehow there is European-style building in the Hiratsuka Hachimangu shrine site.
The wooden house looks like a elementary school :D.
