Mt. Oyama is a holy mountain in Isehara City, Kanagawa prefecture. It has been an object of faith and a place of teaching throughout history, and was worshipped by people of all walks of life. Minamoto no Yoritomo offered a sword to defeat the Taira clan, and it is said that from this the culture of "Osamedachi" (sword offering) was born, and its influence can even be seen in Japanese Rakugo comedy and Ukiyo-e art. The surrounding area is full of delights, such as the historic Oyama Afuri Shrine, the stunning views from the mountain cable car, and places to sample the local cuisine.
“ Oyama is a mountain with a lot of history
ー it has been prosperous since the Edo period after all! ”
Oyama has prospered since the Edo period and is a mountain with history. A lot of people come for the beautiful panoramic view from the top of the mountain. When the weather is clear you can see Mt. Fuji, the Sky Tree and the Southern Japanese Alps. Climbing Mt. Oyama becomes far more enjoyable once you know the history and culture behind it. Lately we have many overseas guests, primarily from Asia. I'm not so fluent in English but we offer an English menu at our shop, so please stop by and try our food. The shop is managed by the 4th generation since the beginning of Meiji period and I'm working here for 48 years now. Some visitors say they want to spend a whole day at Oyama to relax, but there since I'm here for nearly 50 years there is nothing new about this place for me. That is why it is so interesting and refreshing to hear the stories of the visitors who come here the first time. You will need a lot of endurance to climb to the top so if you are not so sure about your physical strength I recommend you to hike up to the view point, take a break and eat delicious obento (packed lunch), and stop by at the local onsen to refresh your body. And don’t forget your hiking shoes! Please enjoy the great nature of Mt. Oyama."
