Ryujin Sugi

The Ryujin sugi course is for guests who wish to visit a quiet forest and would also like a challenging trek.  The highlight of the trek is when we reach the area of the 'three gods' at the top of the valley.  It is a magical area and spending an hour to look around the area is recommended.

Along the way there are some beautiful moss areas and scenes very similar to those found at Shiratani (but without the crowds!).  If photography is a hobby then this course provides many opportunities for good photos.

The course is suitable for guests in good health and for those not afraid to cross a river over stones.  The climb is steep in places.
