Distance & Time | Summary | Map | Photos on Nigishima-toge Pass/Okamizaka-toge Pass trail | Transportation

Distance & Time
About 4.5km, About 2hrs. and 30mins.: From Nigishima Station to Atashika Station
--- a little hard walk

You have to get over two passes on this trail, but not so hard.
Through forests of Japanese cypress or cedar, stone path lasts on moderate slope up and down. Specially there is beautiful stone path near the starting point of Atashika-cho.
It is said that the name of "Okamizaka" literally means "the place where Gods meet, God of Ise and God of Kumano." Though it is also said that "Okamizaka" is from the sound of "Ookami," it means wolves in Japanese, because wolves appeared around here. (Wolves no more live in Japan.)
