East Odaigahara is free to explore; you must be registered to enter West Odaigahara, paying 1,000 yen and taking a lecture beforehand. This time, I explored only in East Odaigahara. First, I headed for the summit located in East Odaigahara. Actually, the mountain is 1,694 meters high at Hinode-ga-Mine, but the parking and bus stop is at around 1,500 meters above sea level. So it was a really short trek. ...
