  • When I visited The Kofun, I went around. It was accessed not from the main gate where there is a large parking lot, but from the parking lot beside the reservoir in Shishinguchi near The Kawasaki Kofun. There was no one else who was aiming for the top of Mt. Ryunoguchi or The Yawatagu Shrine from The Four God Mouths, but when I came near the top of the mountain, I met many people. There is also a small tomb in the forest, which is recommended for those who want to walk in the mountains while exploring historical sites. This time, i didn't have time to go to Hachimangu Shrine because it wasn't originally scheduled, but I knew how long it would take, so I'd like to revisit it.

  • A lot of people come here for hiking but we come here for trail running. There are some benches and tables at the top so you can have a picnic there too.  more »

  • This is one of the best trail running courses around Okayama city. There is a parking lot for 20 cars or so with public bathroom. There are some tables for lunch or tea on the top of the mountain, but no bathroom there. There is a famous shrine where many people expecting entrance exam visit and pray for their health and study on new years day. You may also want to try Misaoyama adjacent to Sogenji temple & Gokoku shrine 20 min drive from here.
  • I used the green shower parking lot every time, but I didn't know there was such a space when I went a little further along the river. Wood table seating, covered benches and toilets with washbasins. It is set up in a large space, so you can enjoy a forest bath while eating lunch etc. here without climbing. It is surrounded by trees, but the outlook is good, and it is safe even if children can play as they like. Children of a nearby nursery school come for a walk that doubles as lunch, and it is a quiet and natural healing spot. If you come by car, it seems to be parked outside the entrance gate, but since it is not a space as a parking lot, it is recommended to walk from the green shower parking lot (about 10 minutes on foot if you are a nursery school child).
