Elevation 1212 m. Until the Edo period, it was called "Inohanayama (猪鼻山)", but before one knows the name "Kintokiyama(金時山)" has been used.
In literature from 1820, it is written that "Sakata Kintoki grew up in this mountain and followed Minamoto No Yorimitsu, therefore is called Kintokiyama."
It is also recommend trekking around Kintaro's legendary spots and Ashigara historic sites.
From the summit of the mountain in fine weather you can view the Tokyo Sky Tree and the Sagami bay, and anniversary badges are distributed at the summit on New Year’s Day every year.
There are courses from Ashigara-toge and from Arashiba for mountain climbing, but you can enjoy a dynamic mountain climbing experience on both courses which has a steep slope from the Torii just below the mountain top with chain ground.

Beautiful trekking route possible mt Fuji view
We hiked up from bus stop 549 all the way up a lovely track that was well maintained and in good order. The route up is pretty difficult and at times you were climbing up some parts.
Very Rocky and lots of tree roots Criss crossing the path as it is quite deep rooted, you will see from the photos. It mentions a 1 hour hike which for athletes without stopping is manageable but expect a more 1h 30m or more.
When you get to the top it's wow and even more of a wow if your lucky to see mount Fuji, unfortunately we had a lot of cloud cover but it was well worth the hike up.
There is a lovely family run Udon snack place on top serving hot Udon and other basic foods including sake and beer.
Top tip. You can walk up from bus stop 549 then walk back down to bus stop 547 to 546. Or walk to the other side which will take you another 1h 30m.
Go and enjoy a half day trek up mount kintoki.
Don't forget to feed the cats and eat some Udon.
