Yabitsutoge Lookout Tower

Views of Hadano City and the surrounding mountains

By Cathy Cawood    - 1 min read

Driving along a narrow road through the mountains of Kanagawa, we stopped at a car park and climbed the path up to a small lookout tower with views over Hadano City and Hatano Country Club. It was cloudy, so we couldn't see all the surrounding mountains clearly, but it was still a beautiful view from the tower. On clear days you can also see Mount Fuji. The name of this place is Yabitsutoge Tenbodai.

 I came to Japan in 2003 to teach English. I lived in Shiga prefecture for 1 year, and it still holds a special place in my heart. I lived in Kyoto for 9 years, then moved to Machida, Tokyo in 2014 after meeting my Japanese partner. I love to take photos, and my Japan in Pictures Facebook page has some 40,000 followers. I have been the Regional Partner for Yamanashi Prefecture since 2014.I am enjoying exploring the prefectures around Tokyo (I like to get off the beaten track), and I hope the photos and stories I share will encourage more people to discover this wonderful country.
