Mt Nokogiri 11 a.m.–2:20 p.m. (Ropeway and free time)
Ferry 3:20–4 p.m.
Return 7 p.m.

Tour includes bus transportation, one way ropeway and temple
admission. This trip involves a lot of walking. Some paths on Mt.
Nokogiri can get slippery and there are over 400 stone steps to
get to the summit. Steps are the only way up or down. If the
Ferry boat is canceled due to rough seas, the tour will take the
Aqua Line back.

Built on a 650 meter island surrounded by 360 degrees of water,
the Umihotaru Parking Area is located about midway on the Tokyo
Bay Aqua Line Expressway. It is a bridge and tunnel combination
with an overall length of 14 kilometers, which includes a 4.4
kilometer bridge and a 9.6 kilometer tunnel. It is the fourth longest
underwater tunnel in the world. The parking stands five levels
tall, with parking on levels one through three, and commercial
facilities on levels four and five. You can enjoy panoramic views
of Tokyo Bay, as well as many shops, restaurants and services.
Mount Nokogiri and its mountain range are shaped like the teeth
of a saw. A Buddhist temple, Nihon-ji, is located near the summit
and it dates back to 725. The highlight of Mount Nokogiri is the
Jigoku Nozoki, or “peak in hell,” and is a thrilling view point located
at the mountain top. There are over 400 stone steps to get to
the top, so it’s not walk in the park. On this mountain, there are
2,639 stone steps total. After “peaking in hell,” let’s take a look
at the Buddha statue carved out of stone located midway on the
mountain. At 31 meters, it is as tall as a ten story building. On
our way back, we will take the 40 minute ferry across Tokyo Bay.
