    Pampas Grass Plain

    Pampas plain

    As you take the bus up from Moto Hakone to Ashiniko, you'll pass by a hillock of pampas grass.

    The trek to the peak can be muddy and discouraging, but standing in the midst of the windy plains with swaying, yellow grass as tall as yourself is an experience in itself.
