Shukubo Kambayashi Katsukane宿坊神林勝金

3 Toge, Haguromachi Toge, Tsuruoka-shi, Yamagata Prefecture


by David Czech Republic / 27 Jul 2019

Great experience of traditional Japanese inn (Ryokan). Located next to the starting point of the pilgrimage route to Mt. Haguro. Gyokusenji temple is in 30 min walking distance. Host is very friendly, food was excellent (vegetarian made from local production). Its located in a small village, so it is a good idea book the room with half board plan.

Among the 30 temple lodgings in Toge, this is the closest one to the stone steps leading to Mt. Haguro, and is approximately 5 minutes away on foot from the Five-storied Pagoda. It is the perfect location for taking a stroll along the avenue of cedar trees on Mt. Haguro.

- Guests can visit Mt. Haguro throughout the year. During the winter, roads are cleared of snow, so guests can visit without worry.
- Climbing season on Mt. Gassan starts from July 1, and is open until mid-September. By taking a vehicle, it is possible to travel to the gate closure along the roads on Mt. Gassan. (Around the end of October)
- In 2019, regular buses bound for Mt. Gassan will operate between July 1 and Aug. 31, as well as Sept. 1, 7-8, 14-16, 21-23, and 28-29.
- Buses from Mt. Yudono bound for Tsuruoka are only in operation Saturdays, Sundays, and holidays during June 3 - Oct. 29.
