Notes:(by tatsuca)
   I've visited Mt. Jimba several times before, but this time I planned a hike to look for Senburi flowers. As I had a slight cold last week, I chose a relatively easy and short course. By using a bus service to Wada BS, it took only an hour to the peak of Mt. Jimba. I also chose the descending trail from Myo-ou toge pass to Sagamiko station which I hadn't walked before, which was also relatively short distance.

The result was very successful: I found lots of Senburi flowers, and I could also see beautiful Mt. Fuji for the first time after several cloudy or hazy hikes.

[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. relatively easy. There were no notable ups and downs except the peak of Mt. Jimba and Myo-ou toge.
- Difficulty: Level 1. Basically, there was no place to use hands, but the short-cut trail I used from the peak of Mt. Yanone on the southeast slope was a little steep and slippery with mud.
- Unnerving?: Level 1. No scary place.
Get lost? Level 3. The traces are clear, but there are many branches, so a map and a compass or a GPS would be recommended.
- Photogenic? Level 3. There are several spots that you can see Mt. Fuji. There were also some wildflowers along the trail. but if the weather is not good enough to see Mt. Fuji, the level could be 2
- Come again? Level 2. The trail I used to the peak of Mt. Jimba was well maintained and cozy to hike. But the trail from Myoou-toge to Sakamiko station had little open view and could be boring to walk again.
- Comment: If you have average hike feet, you can easily walk through to Mt. Takao and Keio Takao-san-guchi station.
I'll attach a couple of my previous hike reports in this area.
