This spectacular hiking course features a moss-draped forest, a beech forest, wild animals including deer and views as far as the sea. Some have compared the views to the scenery in the movie “Avatar." There is a parking area and visitor centre at the start of the hike, and the path is quite easy. From the summit is a panoramic view of the surrounding countryside that in the autumn bursts with the rich colour of turning leaves. The best time to visit is mid-October to early November when the various tree species are at their most brilliant.
For more information on the hike and how to get there read the Odaigahara destination guide.
