From the peak of Mt. Nango, 610 meters above sea level, you can enjoy incredible views of the Manazuru Peninsula stretching out into Sagami Bay.
People who are interested in old legends can head to Jigansui pond. It is where Minamoto no Yoritomo is said to have gone to commit suicide after losing the Battle of Ishibashiyama. Legend says, after seeing the miserable image of himself reflected on the water, he returned to the fight.
Nearby you can also see the remains of Komichi Jizodo (hall for guardian deities), which appears in “Genpei Seisuiki” (The Rise and Fall of the Minamoto and the Taira Clans), and is a good place to stroll while thinking about the Sengoku period.
