The most beautiful valley in Japan
Kofu City, Yamanashi Prefecture, from the Sancho Panoramadai Station on the Shosenkyo Ropeway, climb the ridgeline called Sangegaeshi and you will reach Shosenkyo Panoramadai in about 10 minutes. The granite has a stepped scaffolding that leads to a path that gives it a unique atmosphere. Furthermore, if you walk along the mountain road along the ridge with the sign "Beware of bad roads", you will reach the summit of Mt. Yasaburo (1058.3m).
It takes about 5 minutes on foot from Sancho Panoramadai Station to Panoramadai, and about 15 minutes to Mt. Yasaburo.
The route from Panorama-dai to Mt. Yasaburo has a chain at the end, so it is safe to return at Panorama-dai for those who are not well prepared.
Both Panoramadai and Mt. Yasaburo stand on top of rocky peaks that look up from the valley, so the feeling is exhilarating.
The entire mountain massif is called Mt. Rakanji, and Kakuenmine is located just below (due to the east) of the summit of Mt. Yasaburo.
By the way, the Wago Gongen near Panoramadai Station on the top of the mountain was transplanted from sacred oak trees from the foot of Mt. built.
