■ Oyama / Oyama Cable Car / Oyama Temple / Oyama Afuri Shrine
Located in a corner of Tanzawa Oyama Quasi-National Park, Mt. Oyama at an altitude of 1251.7 meters is one of the most popular climbing spots in the Kanto region!
In 2016, it was also recognized as a "Japan Heritage".
From the top, you can also see the Sagami Plain and the skyscrapers of Tokyo in the distance, and it has been selected as one of the "50 Scenic Spots in Kanagawa".

・Oyama Cable Car
The Oyama Cable Line, commonly known as the Oyama Cable Car, is a cable car with a total length of 0.8 km.
You can easily access the summit of Mt. Oyama while enjoying the nature of Mt. Oyama through the large windows.

・Oyama Temple
It is a temple located on the side of a large mountain, also known as Mt. Aburi.
In autumn, when the maples lining both sides of the stone steps leading to the main hall change color, it is also famous as a scenic spot for autumn leaves.
The "Momiji Festival" is also held, and it is crowded with many people.
There are four types of shuin stamps, and a special edition with powerful gold letters is also available.
[Access: Get off at Oyama Temple Station on the Oyama Cable Car and walk for about 3 minutes]

・Oyama Afuri Shrine
This shrine was founded more than 2,200 years ago and enshrines the three gods of Oyama Sho Ōkami, Ōikazuchi Kami, and Takaokami.
The head office (main shrine) is located at the top of Mt. Oyama, and the lower office is located in the middle.
The view you can see when you get off the Oyama Cable Car Afuri Shrine Station, which has been awarded 2 stars in the "Michelin Green Guide Japon", is a must-see!
[Access: Get off at Oyama Cable Car "Afuri Shrine Station"]

■Hinata Yakushi
The official name "Hinatasan Hojobo" is one of the three yakushi in Japan, whose main shrine is the statue of Yakushi Nyorai.
Until the end of the Edo period, it was called "Hinatasan Ryozenji" and was a base for Hyuga Shugen, where monks piled up penance in the spiritual land.
Every year in mid-September, red spider liliies bloom around Hyuga Yakushi and many people visit.

Hyuga Yakushi is full of highlights, including the statue of a Kongo sumo wrestler on the approach!
At the Treasure Hall, a facility built to house cultural properties, it is possible to see 23 historic Buddha statues, 8 designated by the government and 2 designated by the prefecture.
In addition, the main hall "Yakushido", which features a thatched roof, is also designated as a nationally designated important cultural property.

■ Isehara Tower Mountain Ryokuchi Park
In the vast park, which covers a total of about 13 hectares of parks and civic green spaces, there are promenades and lawn squares, where you can enjoy a relaxing time while being healed by nature.
The promenade is well maintained, so even small children can enjoy hiking with peace of mind.

■ Sangakuen
It is a tangerine orchard with a cultivation area of 1 ha and about 900 tangerine trees!
The tangerine picking season runs from mid-September to February.
From mid-September, you can enjoy very early mandarin oranges such as Hinanohime and Nichinan No. 1, and from early October, you can enjoy picking varieties of mandarin oranges such as Miyagawa Hayao and Taguchi Hayao.

In addition, from spring to summer, you can experience barbecue and vegetable harvesting!
Since Sangakuen is located on the side of a mountain, you can enjoy the scenery of Sagami Bay, Enoshima, and the Boso Peninsula on a sunny day.

[Limited to weekends in January] Operates until 19:00 on Saturdays and Sundays until Sunday, January 28, 2024 The Oyama Cable Car Night View Operation is ♪ being held *Snowy mountains and night view* On the first day of the night view, it snowed from around 3 p.m. to 6 p.m., and there were occasional snowstorms. As soon as I saw it, it turned white, and the snow cover was about 5 cm. At around 6:30 p.m., as soon as the snow stopped, the white field of vision suddenly opened up, and a night view emerged. The brilliance of the city and the snowy scenery were beautiful, and the visitors enjoyed taking pictures. There is a risk that the road surface is still frozen, so please be careful with your feet and enjoy the view from Mt. Oyama.
