Mount Yamainudake Trekking Tour: Relax in Mysterious Moss-Covered Lands

Mount Yamainudake Trekking Tour: Relax in Mysterious Moss-Covered Lands

Mount Yamainudake is named so because the stones on its summit resemble an open-mouthed Yamaiunu wolf. In this place, one of the largest moss-covered forests in Japan is interwoven with groups of megaliths, creating a vast space that seems to have been taken out of fantasy. In times past, it was home to a Shugendo temple, and one of its highlights is the stone Buddhas of the mini Shikoku 88 pilgrimage sites that dot its moss-covered valley. There are many terraced rice fields leading up to the entrance of the mountain trail and the site of an old mountain residence. In this mysterious area, you can feel the coexistence between the people of Kamikatsu and nature. After you fully enjoy your time in nature, eat a locally produced and consumed lunch at Tsukigatani Onsen and relax. Enjoy the charm offered by Kamikatsu with all five senses in this trekking tour. (Highlights) - A moving experience filled with the natural beauty of famous moss-covered sites - Follow the traces of life in the past - Join in a relaxing forest yoga session followed by a cool down - After the trek, you will have lunch made with locally produced ingredients and relax in an onsen (–If you are thinking about traveling to Kamikatsu–) Kamikatsu is a small town with a population of less than 1,500 people. In 2013, it became the first municipality in Japan to make a zero-waste declaration and aims to be a town where nothing is discarded. We only take those who want to experience Kamikatsu as it really is, learn and have a good time through their journeys and are responsible travelers.
