Mt. Nokogiri

It was another early day. To reach Mt. Nokogiriyama I had to travel around Tokyo bay and this would take almost 3 hours one-way.

After a quick breakfast (same as yesterday, it seems I've found my breakfast spot), I headed to the train station to catch one of 4 trains to the other end of the bay.

Around noon I was at the base of the ropeway up the mountain and a little while later this was the view I was rewarded with.

Near the entrance of the park is a giant Buddhist goddess Kannon carved out of the rock.

One of the main highlights of visiting Nokogiriyama is “Hells View.”

The other side of the mountain had nice views too.

A master artisan and 27 assistants created around 1500 statues that are scattered around the mountain.

It was just after two in the afternoon, time for (a delicious convenience store bought) lunch with a nice view.

Knowing it takes 3 hours to get back, I slowly made my way back up the mountain to the ropeway and from there down to the train station where only one train departs every 1.5 hours.

I had plenty of time to enjoy the train station as I had just missed the train by 10 minutes...

Luckily there was a beach nearby to wait for the next train and enjoy the sunset.
