Mt. Kintoki金時山

Mountain

Mt. Kintoki is a 1,212 meter high mountain located on the boundary between Shizuoka Prefecture and Kanagawa Prefecture; it is famous as the setting for the Kintaro legends. From the summit, there are spectacular views of Mt. Fuji, Sagami Bay and Hakone. There is an easy hiking path to the summit, where there is a teahouse and toilets, so even people with little hiking experience can have a safe, enjoyable time climbing to the top. On the route up to the summit, visitors pass the Kintoki-jinja Shrine, which is dedicated to Sakata no Kintoki, the warrior who is said to have been the model for the legendary hero Kintaro, as well as a small shrine dedicated to Kintaro’s hatchet, and various other spots associated with Kintaro.

          Kanagawa prefecture acts as an extension of the Tokyo metropolis that spills over into coastal towns, most notably Yokohama city, heavily populated and known for its Chinatown and seaside attractions. Just the right distance for a day trip out of Tokyo, Kanagawa is home to some of Tokyo's most accessible beaches, including around Kamakura, best known for its Big Buddha. Visitors can also travel a little farther afield for a weekend at Hakone onsen town.
