A mountain located on the border between the prefectures of Tokyo, Saitama, and Yamanashi. 2,017 meters tall, it is the tallest mountain in Tokyo. Climbing routes include a route on the Okutama side and a route starting at Mitsumine-jinja Shrine in Chichibu. From the summit, you can enjoy a commanding view of Mt. Fuji and other surrounding mountains. Whichever route you take, it is difficult to reach the top of the mountain in a single day, and most climbers aiming for the summit choose to spend a night at Sanjo no Yu, Kumotorisansou, or another lodging facility on the mountain.
