|If you take a bus
|Take the bus for Oku-Yugawara/Fudodaki from Yugawara Station, and get off at Oku-Yugawara Iriguchi Bus Stop or Oku-Yugawara Bus Stop, the last stop (about a 20-minute ride).
|If you take a taxi
|Yugawara Station→Oku-Yugawara (about a 15-minute ride)
|To Momiji no Sato
| Take the bus for Oku-Yugawara/Fudodaki from Yugawara Station, and get off at Oku-Yugawara Iriguchi Bus Stop (the next to last stop, about a 20-minute ride). It is about a 40-minute walk to Ikemine Bridge.
(Momiji no Sato is located along the Ikemine Hiking Course. The course itself is not a tough course. You cannot get to Momiji no Sato by car.)※If the Ikemine Hiking Course is too difficult, we recommend getting off the bus at the last stop, Oku-Yugawara, and walking up the gently paved slope along the road in the direction of the tea house. This route, too, will provide a very beautiful view with plenty of momiji leaves.
