    Jogging In Ogasayama Sports Park

    by taigaa001 Written Sep 29, 2012

    Ogasayama Sports Park best known for ECOPA stadium is popular among joggers and even serious long distance runners. The park is really huge and you can take flat course around ECOPA stadium or steep climbing route around lookouts about 100 meters above sea level. You can even jog to Hattasan Temple grounds. Some serious runners often venture into Mount Ogasayama(265m) starting from Ogasayama Sports Park and passing through Hattasan.

    Caution: Avoid running through mountain trails right after torrential rain or typhoon attack. Ogasayama area has a number of landslide cases and even the trails there have high risk after the rain.

    The Park Has Wide Variety of Challenging Courses Running Flat Course is also Enjoyable

    Skateboarding In Fukuroi

    by taigaa001 Updated Sep 29, 2012

    Most of the parks in Japan forbid skateboarding. In Fukuroi, there is a place for skateboarding called "SKATE PARK" in a riverside park close to Kouai Ohashi Bridge, about 600 meters north of Aino Park lookout. While advanced level skateboarders may not be satisfied, it could be a good practicing and warm-up places for most of ordinary skateboarders.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After visiting the statue of Kukai, I found a way to go down the hill. The trail was not easy to trace at times but I managed to go down the trail and get to the divide. It seems that this part of the trail is not so well trodden and I hardly saw anyone during the decent down the hill.

    Don't Miss this direction board The trail may not be easy to follow Head for the gate down the left Nice wooden bridge Back to the divide

    Let's Take A Walk In Yusanji 5

    Passing stone pagoda, hilltop trail goes on further. There is a fork along the way, right trail goes to western edge of the hill and left trail goes to the statue of Kukai, founder of Koyasan in Wakayama. Along the trail you will find jizo statues every 10 meters or so. The hilltop trail is really quiet except for murmurings of birds. Few people ever enter this area and I saw only one person along the trail.

    Calm and quiet trail Jizo statues are placed every 10 meters or so Take a left trail to the statue of Kukai Statue of Kukai, founder of Koyasan

    Let's Take A Walk In Yusanji 4

    After visiting the Main Hall, you are going down the stairs and downhill trail until you find this signboard(photo #1). From there you are climbing the steep stairs to the hilltop area called Daishiyama. Compared to this steep climb, the previous hike to the Main Hall is merely a light-breeze. During the climb I began to perspire when it was still in dead of the winter. According to the guideboard (photo#4) you can see Japanese Paradise Flycatchers, Japanese green woodpeckers, blue-and-white flycatchers, Narcissus flycatchers, Japanese grosbeaks and Japanese pheasants around the hill.

    After passing the red hut pavillion you still have to face steep stairs ahead. After finishing the climb, you will be rewarded by the magnificent view of three-storied pagoda. The pagoda was originally built in 1190 by Minamoto-no Yoritomo the founder of Kamakura government. It was rebuilt in 1611 regarded as one of the top 3 three-storied pagoda built during Azuchi Momoyama Period around late 16th to early 17th century together with that of Chomeiji in Shiga Prefecture and of Hoshakuji in Kyoto Prefecture. Right ahead is the Main Hall (Yakushido) , also built by the order of Minamotono Yoritomo. It was rebuilt in mid 18th century. After visiting both cultural assets, let's go down the stairs and try a hill trail.

    Right after taking the right trail you will pass the narrow clearing. Mountainside temples often have such narrow clearing. It's something similar to right-angle turns often seen in historical towns. In bordering hills of Kamakura such narrow passages do have defensive function for Kamakura. I guess this clearing has the similar purpose. As you go along the trail you will see a red hut pavillion for viewing the small waterfall.

    Let's Take A Walk In Yusanji 1

    by taigaa001 Updated Apr 1, 2011

    Strolling in the Yusanji trails is a nice way to burn up kilojuiles and you may watch wild birds along the trail to boot. First let's enter the gate moved from Kakegawa castle and climb up to three-storied pagoda. The trail to the three-storied pagoda is not difficult to find if you see the guideboard well. Follow the trail between two red lanterns and when you see the sign(photo #5) go for the right trail toward the clearing.

    The Entrance Gate of Yusanji See this guideboard carefully Enter the trail from here Go along the wide valley trail At this junction go for the right trail
