Subashiri-guchi Climbing Route and nearby area

    It takes approximately 25 minutes to reach the Subashiri-guchi Climbing Route (Subashirimiya-kami) by bus from JR Gotemba Station. You can begin walking or go up to Shin-gogoume by bus and then start from there. Everyone from children to old people can enjoy climbing this route safely.
    Sengen Shrine, at the entrance to Subashiri-guchi, has large cedar trees that soar to a height of 20 meters and huge Japanese elms that have been designated as Prefectural Natural Monuments. The road until Shingogoume is entirely paved, and the Self-Defense Forces East Fuji training grounds are on each side. From places with good views, you can see the fields of susuki grass and mixed tree forests at the bottom of the mountain.

    Subashiri-guchi Climbing Route and nearby area

    After walking to the north (heading towards Komitake Shrine's Tengudou) in front of the tea house at Shingogoume, you will see a sign showing the directions to Kofuji. The sandy gravel in the Kofuji area, due to a blend of different sand sizes, tends to form a striped pattern. Kofuji's altitude is 1,900 meters, and it has a magnificent view of Mt. Fuji, Lake Yamanaka, and Lake Kawa-guchi. Many climbers switch to this route to descend because they can enjoy walking through the sand from Nanagoume to Sunaharai-gogoume.
