It's also a place where you can get a glimpse of the history of Ashigara. There are many beautifully maintained parks, so there are many families, but the spectacular view from the castle ruins is worth a visit! There are many touring road bikes, so be careful when crossing the road! Recommended for those who like history!

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 😎
