[Takes around two hours 20 minutes at a regular pace (or two hours and 30 minutes if walked in the reverse direction) - suitable for regular walkers]
A course where you can enjoy the view while touring historic relics dating back to the days when Yugawara was called Doi-go.
You will get a feel for the close ties between Yugawara and Yoritomo Minamoto as you take in sights such as Joganji Temple, Sanehira’s family temple, the Doi castle ruins (at the peak of Mt. Shiroyama), and Shitodo Cave.
The grassy meadow of the picnic area is a best place to stop and have lunch.
The superb view from the top of Mt. Shiroyama enables you to look over Sagami Bay, as well as the Izu Peninsula, and even as far as Hatsushima and Oshima islands.
