Description:

This is one of the most popular tours among tourists due to the fame and grandeur of the Jomon Sugi. However, getting to the Jomon Sugi is no easy feat due to its distance.
First, you will walk on the old railroad that goes along the Anbo river. It’s a nice walk through this natural green tunnel, but the surroundings do not change dramatically for about 3 hours.
Then, you will trek on the trail for around 2 hours. This part will be tough, but entertaining. You get to see the biggest tree stump! Not only will you see the tree stump, but you'll also get to step in and check how it is like to be inside the stump of other characteristic Yakusugi trees, and finally, the Jomon Sugi.
After some time visiting the Jomon Sugi, you will return on the same route back. This tour will be approximately 10 to 11 hours. 
*Please note: This popular course gets very crowded on the weekends, Japanese holidays and during the summer (from late July to September), even though it’s in the middle of mountain.
