Myoko-Togakushi Renzan National Park
About 10 Hours
A one-day hike from Togakushi to Sasagamine in Myoko with a local, professional mountain guide, while enjoying the natural beauty of the Myoko-Togakushi Renzan National Park. The ancient path between Togakushi and Myoko has long been traveled by those wishing to worship at Zenkoji Temple, Togakushi, and Mt. Myoko, and was thus known as a road of faith. At the same time, it was used as a road for transporting seafood from the Sea of Japan, as well for people who wished to visit therapeutic hot springs. The local water sources and forests provided the essentials for the local inhabitants. While walking the trail, see relics of water worship, remains of old sawmills, and more. Visitors can enjoy the guide’s explanations of nature as well as tales of local beliefs and lifestyles!
