Hike to Mt.Kobo Course

This trail is well maintained and you can walk very easily.
There are three mountains, but all mountains are low about 200 m above sea level.
Trails are well maintained and there is no dangerous place.
Shoes for hiking are better, but sneakers are fine as well.

My recommended rental shop for outdoor goods is here.

The summit of Mt. kobo has a well and you can drink natural water.

However, since there is a steep slope in the first half and the second half, let’s walk carefully after rain or when the ground is wet.
The total walking time is around 2 and a half hours.
Even the highest peak is a small mountain of 189 m so sneakers are okay, of course the hiking shoes are better though.

If it is fine, you can see from Mt.Gongen to Sagami Bay and the Izu peninsula.

Hot spring “Kobo – no – satoyu” at the end of the course is a natural hot spring that you can use on a day trip, enjoying an outdoor bath, you can relax slowly in a spacious tatami room on the 2nd floor,
This hot spring is in front of the Tsurumaki Onsen Station on the Odakyu Line, returning home is also easy.

It is a dense hot spring with a component that warms the body very much with good quality hot water containing a lot of calcium.
