Mount Nokogiri

Mt. Nokogiri (altitude 330m) is seen as a steep ridge like a saw tooth, and has long been a landmark for ships entering Tokyo Bay. Since a ropeway and mountain climbing expressway (charged) are available in addition to walking, Mt. Nokogiri is a mountain that anyone can enjoy regardless of age or physical strength. Also, Mt. Nokogiri features a grand lookout point and is home to a temple complex containing one of Japan's largest Buddhas. Furthermore, it is a great photo spot as you can see Miura on the opposite bank across Tokyo Bay, Mt. Fuji and Izu Oshima island on a clear day.
