Special Notes

  • Trailheads. There are quite a couple, but the main ones as far as I can see are:
    • Yagurazawa Bus Stop (矢倉沢). Google maps pin here (google works for transport directions)
      • Train, Tokyo to ShinMatsuda Station (新松田駅). 
      • Bus, Shin Matsuda Station to Yagurazawa Bus Stop (矢倉沢). Take North Exit (北口), bus stop 1. 
    • Yamakita Station (山北駅).  Around two hours away from Tokyo, this stop transfers at Shin Matsuda Station above. It should be JPY1,220 ish one way, but it can get as high as JPY2,000+ depending on the train taken, so check the prices at google maps first!
