Ashigara Pass, which I visited with my wife and eldest daughter when I lived in Hiratsuka a long time ago. On the first day of my overnight trip in the car, I wanted to see this dusk, so this time I visited with my wife and Yuki Wanko for the first time in 30 years.
After all, Mt. Fuji is exceptionally solemn. I will join hands involuntarily 🙏😍.

Altitude 759m. Hakone outer ring mountain system.
The view from the pass itself is not good. Especially on Saturdays and Sundays, there are many 🏍️, 🚴 and 🏃♂️, so be careful when running on 🚗❗️
From Jizo-do, Ashigaratōge is connected to Yakurazawa (Ashigarakodo) in addition to Prefectural Road 78.
