Climbed by motorcycle from the north side of the mountain in November. It passes by a mandarin orange field to the pass, but it feels good. Perhaps because it was the morning, there were no vehicles in front or behind, and the point that I was able to run comfortably was personally high. However, the pass is narrow and the fallen leaves are not well maintained, so be careful (those who seek speed should not come). It's a good place to enjoy the scenery and the air, and the scenery at the top is open and comfortable! It might be good to come on a summer morning ◎

It takes about an hour and a half from Ashigara station, and it's hot in the summer, so it's good in the middle of winter 😁 It's on the way to Mt. Ashigara, but the air is clearer than in the city so you can see Mt. Fuji beautifully 🗻
Most of the time, the recovery of the collapse has not progressed and the road is closed 😢
If you walk, you can force it, but you should stop it 🤣 If it snows next winter, don't walk, I'll guarantee you'll be refreshed 😎

It looks really beautiful.
It may be hard to find, but climb from the other side of the road where there is a small parking lot (about 5 cars) with a large map of the area. You can see Mt. Fuji in about 1 minute, and if you go further down, you will reach the best spot in 1 minute.
