The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at Ashiya Train Station (Google Map Directions), but there are three train lines in the area, so alternatively you could start at Ashiya-gawa station (Google Map Directions) and the other Ashiya station (Google Map Directions) to the south. I finished at Arima Onsen Train Station (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 13.7km (8.5mi) in about 5hr
  • Grade: Medium to Hard. The hike up the southern side of Mount Rokko has rock-climbs which would be negotiable by anyone of reasonable fitness. The paths are clear and well-trodden.
  • Date Walked: 19th of November 2018
