Mt. Myoujingatake, Hakone (Part 1) (March 16th)

Mt. Kintoki from the parking lot near YH.

    On the second day of the Hakone trip, it was so clear that we decided to climb Mt. Myoujingatake.

Can you see the white tip of Mt. Fuji?

Mt. Fuji started to show up.

Barbella flagellifera (Kiyosumi-ito-goke).

We could see the smoke.

The trail with the wall of Pleioblastus chino var. vaginatus (Hakone-dake) continues.

The sign says it takes 40 minutes to Mt. Myoujingatake.
But it took us more than an hour.

Interesting clouds were in the sky.

Mt. Fuji showed up again!

Can you see some white mountains on the right?

Some hiker said the white peak is Mt. Kitadake.

Hi I'm looking for information about this hike, as I'm looking for a moderate level day hike to do while I'm in/near tokyo. I was hoping you could help me out. Do you think this hike is possible towards the end of March? Will it be too cold or snowy? Do you know how long the trail is and how steep it is? Is the trail well marked and easy to follow? Did you start from Saijyouji temple? Any help would be awesome. Thanks! -Mike
