Dojuzan Kasugai Hike


Kasugai, north of Nagoya, may not be known for its natural beauty, however, it does exist.

The small mountains of Dojuzan (429m), Otaniyama (425m) and Mirokuyama (437m).

The small mountains of Dojuzan (429m), Otaniyama (425m) and Mirokuyama (437m), south west of Tajimi, make for a good hike through the forest with spectacular views on a clear day, stretching as far as the skyscrapers around Nagoya Station to the south and the mountains of the Southern Alps in Gifu and Nagano prefectures to the north.

The trail connecting the three peaks is part of the larger Tokai Nature Trail.

If coming by car, park in the parking lot of the Kasugai Botanical Garden (グリーンピア春日井).
Walk 15 minutes to the Hosono Camp Ground BBQ facilities, the hike begins from a marked trail near Akiba Shrine. The trail could be classified as moderate in difficulty along a well marked path through forest, passing several clear waterfalls.

There are no facilities, so bring your own. The circular route takes a total of approximately two hours.
