Hallo, I'm Toshi. I live near this area for more than 20years. I was walking this beatiful hill as my hobby at the weekend from before. I love this place so I thought I'd like to introduce this wonderful area to foreigners from before. Now, I am starting to nature guide which introduces this place. I can gide you to my secret place. Let's enjoy nature walking!
There are a lot of old trucks use from A.D.800's (Heian period) to 1800's (Edo period) and some historical land mark in this area, it can make you think about the people lived here at that time. A car can't enter most trails to this area. The people are little here too,so It's very quiet and is a good place. It's possible to enjoy the various landscapes depend on the season and beautiful birds can also be seen. I'm so glad to guide.
