Toyota Things to Do

    Mt. Sanage is the low mountain located between Seto and Toyota, 629 meters above sea level. Since this is one of the most popular segments of Tokai Nature Trail, Japanese version of National Scenic Trail, the climbing routes from both Seto and Toyota are excellently managed and popular even among family hikers. While Seto side, northern part of the mountain, is characterized with lush green forest, Toyota side of the trail, south side of the mountain, is filled with uniquely shaped rocks and religious sites. The mountain is often compared with Mt. Takao in Hachioji, Tokyo. Both mountains are religious mountain with lots of things to see. The only difference is that Mt. Sanage does not have a ropeway like Mt. Takao does.

    Seto climbing route starts from Unkoji temple while Toyota route starts from Sanage Shrine. It is also a part of Aichi Kogen Quasi National Park.

    Kuragaike Park is one of the most popular parks in Aichi prefecture. It is a huge park with the area of 94 ha, with the beautiful view around Kuragaike Pond, hiking trails, a small zoo and a farmpark with sheep and horses. It also has a Toyota Kuragaike Memorial Hall, showing how Toyota company has become what it is today. My last visit to the park was in 1990 so I would like to visit the park again for the Toyota Memorial Hall. It is a good place for a family trip.

    The bus for Korankei departs from Meitetsu Higashi Okazaki station north exit bus terminal. It will take about one hour but during autumn leaves season it will take more time (maybe two or three hours) to get there. Bus fare from Higashi Okazaki to Korankei is 800 yen for adults( 12 year old or older) and 400 yen for children(under 12).

    To get to Meitetsu Higashi Okazaki station, take Meitetsu Main Line either from Nagoya(from Kyoto, Osaka and western part of Japan) or Toyohashi(from Hakone, Tokyo and eastern part of Japan). There's a bus service from Toyota station and Sanage station but these bus lines may be of use for Toyota and Nagoya residents.

    The Bus(#8) starts at #4 gate Here Comes The Bus
