Koma Sando (Shopping Street)
Koma Sando is full of all sorts of establishments, including Japanese diners, cafes, ryokan inns, and souvenir shops. We recommend dishes using tofu cuisine, a local specialty, for lunch. The soba noodles available here are delicious as well and certainly worth a try. We recommend the traditional Japanese toy known as the “Oyama Koma” as a souvenir. It can be played with as a toy or used in interior decorating to easily enjoy a Japanese feel in your own home. The colorful cloth blowing in the wind on the front eaves of the shop known as a nuno-maneki will almost certainly give you a sense of relaxation.

Oyama Afuri Shrine - Shimosha (Lower Shrine)
The Oyama Afuri Shrine is said to have been constructed approximately 1,200 years ago and has been a center of faith from days of old. In the Edo Period (1603 – 1868), the common people created religious organizations known as kou and regularly made pilgrimages to both Mt. Oyama and Mt. Fuji. In addition, Mt. Oyama, on which the Oyama Afuri Shrine is located, is a famous mountain itself and has been depicted in both the Japanese traditional art form ukiyoe as well as the oil paintings of Vincent van Gogh. On a clear day, one can even view Mt. Fuji from this mountain, and this spectacular sight is definitely worth viewing!

Mt. Oyama Trekking
Experience an approximately 150-minute long trek from the shimosha (lower shrine) to the summit of Mt. Oyama! This trek (mountain climbing) can be enjoyed by beginners as well. There are a number of sightseeing spots to see along the way on the trek, including splendid Japanese cedar trees and adorable Jizo (guardian deities of travelers and children). Visitors can also enjoy taking pictures in a spot allowing a beautiful view of Mt. Fuji. Enjoy a trek up the mountain and experience the abundant nature of the area. Receive some of Mt. Oyama’s pure water (drinking water) as a present!!!

Let's Try Ukiyoe Printing
Ukiyoe prints began to spread among the common people around 1680 and are a traditional Japanese art form. Mt. Oyama has been featured in more than 200 Ukiyoe prints from the Edo period alone, including from well-known artists such as Hiroshige Utagawa and Hokusai Katsushika, as well as paintings by van Gogh. Now you can try your hand at these ukiyoe prints for yourself!! The process is quite simple. Feel free to take your finished ukiyoe print home with you as a souvenir by which to remember your travels.

Trekking at Mt.Oyama

We needed a break from the craziness of Tokyo so we took the trekking tour to Mt. Oyama. It was great. I wanted to do something creative too so I made a little wood block piece of art that is all my own! I’ll always remember making it with the very patient art sensei. This tour was an awesome way to get our own little mountain retreat.
