Last week we went for an afternoon hike with Kaito, a local high school student who we have been hanging out with (I’m still in the process of writing up his story). The mountain is only a ten minute drive from our office. We had a great time hiking with and sharing with Kaito.
It is about a hour and a half hike up to this historic location. Though details are sketchy, from artifacts found in the area, it is understood that the mountain top was made into a military facility/stronghold during ancient through medieval times, with a castle and everything. Today it is only a flat open field on top of a mountain with a view looking over the bay, the Pacific Ocean and Ishinomaki.
Thank you Kaito!
