In May, I went back to the Tanzawa Mountains, in Kanagawa. This time, I started at Hinata Yakushi (日向薬師), in Atsugi, east of the mountains. I took the bus from Isehara station and got off at the last stop then started walking. I went through Mount Oyama (大山), Mount Sannoto (三ノ塔) and Mount Tonodake (塔ノ岳). From there, I walked down the mountain to take the bus at the Okura (大倉) bus terminal. It was a great day, although it was foggy at first. Mount Fuji was even visible from Mount To.

Above, to get to the start of the trail to Mount Sannoto, I took an alternate trail in the forest (at the back of the parking lot) instead of the paved road.
Above, the trail did not arrive exactly where I needed to go so I had to double back using the paved road.
