A 4 hours + bus drive, and a rope way. I was up there, 北八ヶ岳 (Kitayatsugatake). Planning to catch a local train back to Tokyo at the same day, I've only 4 hours for a rush trekking. But I glad I did make the decision to get my foot here. Spent 4 hours alone in the woods really clear my mind ups and helps me throw away the burden that I'd hang upon myself.
The view are really stunning and I hope you enjoy them too :)
