Route Infomation:
   There were no dangerous spots.
Ichi-no-one trail from the peak of Mt. Jimba to Jimba-tozanguchi BS was very well maintained. (A branch to Kami-sawai, I originally planned seemed a little rough, so I change my plan as in the route log.)

I used a bus from Takao station to Jimba-kogen-shita BS today, but it took 40 minutes. It might have been better to use a bus from Fujino station to Jimba-tozan-guchi or walk from Sagamiko station.

I stopped by a noodle restaurant near Fujino station and had cold noodles. I wanted two kinds of soba noodles of a half size, but they didn't serve them in the way, so I had to order two full size plates. It wasn't so bad, though.

Notes:(by tatsuca)
   This time, I planned a hike to Mt. Jimba to find senburi flowers. The trail between this mountain and Mt. Takao is one of the most popular hiking courses, but I chose Ichi-no-one trail from the peak to JR Fujino, which I haven't hiked before.

As the weather forecast was good, I also hoped to see Mt. Fuji for the first time after the dismal days we have had, but some clouds hide the summit while I stayed at the peak.

Anyway, the hike wasn't so bad, because the trail was nice and comfortable to walk, and I found various kinds of flowers unexpectedly as well as a lot of senburi flowers.

[Rating of the trail for middle-aged beginner hikers, like myself
* The keys used in my logs are in: http://mountrec.com/modules/diary/629-detail-455
- Required Stamina: Level 2 of 5. Not so tough.
- Difficulty: Level 1. No place to use hand.
- Unnerving?: Level 1. No problem.
- Get lost? Level 2. It may be troublesome to find the right trailhead from the peak of Mt. Jimba because there are several trailheads side by side. There are some branches along the Ichi-no-one trail, so they could also be confusing. GPS with a planned course on it would be helpful.
- Photogenic? Level 2. There were few flowers between Jimba-kogenshita trailhead to Wada-toge trail branch, but you can find various kinds of flowers in other sections. If the weather is good enough to enjoy the gorgeous view of Mt. Fuji, the level would be 3.
- Come again? Level 2. Well maintained trail for a good light hike from autumn to spring. It could be too hot in summer, though.
Comment: The Ichi-no-one trail was better and gentler than I had expected, but the driveway walk from Jimba-tozanguchi BS to Fujino station is a little too long and boring. I would use the trail for ascending next time, but but I would probably use a bus from Fujino and the Jimba-tozanguchi BS.
