Ryoukamisan 両神山, 1.723 m

1.723 m

10. Jan 2010

I drove a small mountain road from Tomioka into south direction – which was beautiful, but it also took a long time. On the map this road looked straight, but it had thousands of curves…

After arrival I started to hike. The way leaded through a valley, the river partly has been frozen. From the mountain hut the way became steep and several rocks had to be climbed by using rope or chains. I meet some young people having lunch on the way; they did not want to continue because the rocks had to be climbed – covered with some snow and ice.

This mountain is a holy mountain for (wild?) dogs. On the top there is a shrine guarded by dog-statues. After a short rest I continued hiking the peak.

After a cup of hot tea I went back down. It was already late – during sunset – when I meet a Kamoshika in the forest. I reached the car just in time before darkness, then took a bath in Ryoukami-onzen and went back home.
