Notes:(by tatsuca)
   I hiked Mt. Hinata in the morning looking for two wildflowers, and in the afternoon I came here to look for other two wildflowers.
Mt. Nykusa, especially the highland marsh at the foot of the peak is famous for wildflowers from spring to early autumn, so I visited this place three times since last spring.

As I arrived at the parking close to 1 in the afternoon, I used a long rope way. Also, I only hiked around the marshland and the peak, so it took only two hours.
But as the second hike of the double-header, it was good enough for me as a middle-aged beginner hiker.

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 1 of 5. Easy.
- Difficulty: Level 1. There are no spots to use hand.
- Unnerving?: Level 1. No problem.
- Get lost? Level 2. The trails are very well maintained and the signs are clear, but there were several confusing branches with several driveways to the different direction, a map would help you avoid an unwanted detour.
- Photogenic? Level 3. If you are a flower lover, the level is 3. If the weather permits, the 360 open view from the peak can make it 4.
- Come again? Level 3. As I like taking pictures of flowers, I'd surely come back.
* In order to make the hike a little tougher, walking through Tei-zawa trail is one idea.
Or, starting from Sawairiguchi trailhead, 300m below the marshland to the east. There is also a relatively large free parking near the trailhead.

I attach the hiking log of my previous visit when I hiked a loop trip through Tei-zawa trail and a Youtube I made after the previous visit
