Azegamaru in Tanzawa mountain range

powered by

Azegamaru (畦ヶ丸, 1 293 m) is forested mountain with soft white rock (probably sort of calcite and dolomite). Many mountain rivers and waterfalls. Good hike, but not so many good views since very forested.

Trails are very good with many bridges, wide track, mountain huts with toilets etc. It is part of Tanzawa-Oyama quasi-national park. Oyama also belongs to Tanzawa mountains.

Video while driving to Tanzawa mountain range. This route has everything - view on white Fuji, high bridges, passes through narrow mountain valleys etc.

Are you driving on the left?
Beautiful photos and films. The forest is lovely but that view od Fuji in the distance is breathtaking.

Thank you for commenting! That would be too dangerous to drive and film. I can only film when somebody else is driving.

Just found this site OMG did it bring back a flood of memories. I spent 5 years in Japan and wrote about Tanzawa on my blog title of the post is Alone in the Mountains with the Thunder. The videos the music to the video the phots of the water falls and streams....OMG thank you! It was a great trip down memory lane!
