Shizuoka's healing valley、Immerse yourself in the tranquility of Sumata Gorge ① Also a sacred place of Yuru Camp△

The next place we visited after Okuoikojo Station was Sumatakyo Onsen.。stay here for one night、The next day, we toured the Yume Suspension Bridge.。The inn I stayed at was Suikoen.、I'll write about that article next time.。Let's start with the suspension bridge of dreams。Since there are too many photos, I would like to introduce them in two parts.。

 

Walking map from “Sumatakyo Onsen Parking Lot” to “Dream Suspension Bridge”

It is about 2.5km one way from the Sumatakyo Onsen parking lot to Yume no Suspension Bridge.。From there, you will have to cross Hiryukyo Bridge and return to the original parking lot, so you will have to walk more than 6km.。Stroll around the hot spring village along the way、If you go to Sarunami Bridge, it may be about 10km.。If you are not confident in your physical strength, we recommend that you take a break and sightsee with plenty of time.。

Also、I stayed at Sumatakyo Onsen the previous day, so I left in the morning.。The Yume Suspension Bridge gets quite crowded.、Should I stay overnight at Sumata Gorge Onsen?、If that is not possible, it is best to arrive early in the morning.。It's relatively empty in the morning.、A lot of people will come in the afternoon, so。

 

Stroll around Sumatakyo Onsen Village

This is the parking lot of Sumatakyo Onsen.。I think most people start walking from here.。When it's crowded, the parking lot may be a little far away.、To avoid this, we recommend arriving early.。By the way, I stayed at Suikoen the day before, so I left my car there.。

There are some interesting objects at Sumata Gorge Onsen。これは親子愛情カエルなるもの。

こちらは寸又峡温泉の源泉ですね。寸又峡温泉は非常に泉質が良くて、名湯百選に選出されています。温泉自体は無色透明なのですが、アルカリ性が非常に高いためか、It's so slimy that I can't even open the lid of the plastic bottle.。

Monkey avoiding illegal parking。When I was taking an open-air bath at Suikoen, a monkey came to visit me.。There are many wild monkeys

This is deer。Unfortunately, I wasn't able to see any wild deer this time.、If you're lucky, maybe you'll meet。

Oranges were sold along the way.。You can also get mandarin oranges in Sumata Gorge.。I thought it was only in warm coastal areas.。

温泉郷にはこのように看板が所々配置されています。そんなに広くはないので短時間ですべて回ることができると思います。

バスの発着場。このバスの第一便が到着する前に訪れることがおススメします。つまり午前中ですね。八百屋さん何気に繁盛していました。

There is also a post office.。There are public restrooms in Sumata Gorge, so don't worry if you are close to a restroom.。

If you go a little higher up there is a natural open-air bath.。There seems to be a barrel sauna as well.、Advance reservations are required for that.。

This is the entrance。Towels are available for rent for a fee, so if you want to save money, you may want to bring your own.。I didn't know that when I came here.、This open-air bath seems to have been introduced in the anime Yuru Camp△ Season 3.。If you are going on a pilgrimage to a holy place, please don't forget your towel.。

antelope statue。天然記念物ですね。となるとさっきの鹿はカモシカかもしれません。By the way、カモシカの天敵は鹿みたいです。鹿がカモシカの縄張りに入ってきて餌となる草をすべて平らげてしまうようですね。ダーウィンが来たで観ました。

飲食店も結構あります。ここが夢の吊り橋まで一番近い駐車場かもしれません。寸又峡温泉入口の駐車場以外にも、そこから中に入ったところにいくつか駐車場はありますので、事前に行きたい場所と相談して停める場所を考えると良いかと思います。By the way, there is a parking lot near the open-air bath mentioned earlier.。

A footbath cafe called Haruko Uyomi。Looks like this place was also the setting for Yuru Camp△.。I should have taken more photos><

No cars can enter from here。I will walk and cross the gate.。

夢の吊り橋の入場料は無料ですが、このように環境保全のために募金が募られています。少ないですが、私も寄付させていただきました。

持ち帰り自由な木の実。子供は喜ぶかもですねー

途中にある案内図。夢の吊り橋までの往復は大体1時間くらいでしょうか。ゆっくり観光すると2時間かかるかもしれないという距離感です。

寸又峡に生息する生き物たち。Ah、やっぱりニホンジカもいるんですね。カモシカみられた運が良い!

このような道を歩きます。車道ではありますが自家用車は侵入できないので堂々と真ん中を歩きます

途中トイレがありました。不安な方は用をたしておきましょう。

しばらく歩くとトンネルが。結構長いトンネルです。

トンネルを抜けると分かれ道。ここから夢の吊り橋へ行くには右側の道を進みます。グルっと回って左側の道から戻ってきます。夢の吊り橋が一方通行だからですね。

この階段を下ります。足が悪い人にはかなり大変な気がします。

こんな人一人が通れるほどの道を進みます。夢の吊り橋まであと少しです。

 

今回の記事はここまで。次回は夢の吊り橋を渡って、グルっと回ってきたいと思います!

 

Also famous for its Instagram photos! A rare station building built on the water、Unexplored “Okuoi Lake Station” also a sacred place of Yuru Camp△

メディアでも紹介されることが多く、インスタ映えポイントとしても有名なので、奥大井湖上駅をご存じの方も多いかと思います。However、その知名度の一方で実際に訪れたことのある方はあまりいらっしゃらないのでしょうか。その理由のひとつがアクセスの悪さ。前回記事で紹介した蓬莱橋から北方面、静岡の角に向かうこと県道の山道を60km以上のところに奥大井湖上駅があります。

途中道が狭くなり、対向車線と譲り合いながら進む狭い道がありますので車を運転する方はご注意を。でもまぁ次回紹介予定の寸又峡温泉に向かう道よりは、大分マシなのでここで慣らしてから寸又峡温泉に向かうのもありかもですね!

 

マップ『千頭駅』から『奥大井湖上駅』

鉄道で直接奥大井湖上駅に来られる方以外にも、川根本町に訪れる方は千頭駅に寄られる方が多いと思います。そこからだと約12kmほど北上すると奥大井湖上駅に着きます。途中寸又峡温泉方面との分かれ道がありますが、右側に進むと長島ダムを経由して目的地へと繋がります。この長島ダムもゆるキャン△の舞台となっていたようですね。これも訪れた後に知った情報なのですが……

 

駐車場から奥大井湖上駅を眺める展望台へ

奥大井湖上駅の駐車場は無料です。案内標識通りに進めばたどり着けます。Except、県道を右折して駐車場までの道は幅が狭いので、対向車が来たときは譲り合いが必要になります。

駐車場からは軽い登山道。駐車場から登ってくるとこのように分かれ道があります。ここで奥大井湖上駅に向かうか、レインボーブリッジ撮影ポイント(展望台)に向かうかと。今回は旅館のチェックイン時間の関係で少々急ぐので奥大井湖上駅には行きません。実は結構いい部屋を予約しているので早めにチェックインしたいのですよ。なので展望台で鉄道を眺めたらすぐに寸又峡温泉に向かいます。

階段を登りきるとレインボーブリッジ湖上遊歩道の看板が見えます。駐車場からは大体10分も歩けば到着できるかと思います。ゆっくり歩くと15分かかるかも。

湖上遊歩道のマップ。この周辺の位置関係が示してあります。ほとんどの人は展望台と駅にしか行かないので、この看板にはあんまりお世話にならないかも。

鉄道が来る15分前に到着。ちょうどタイミング良く来られました。如何せん電車の本数が少ないので、鉄道が走る瞬間だけをみたいという場合は、Beforehand時刻表を確認しておくと良いかと。この日は先客はあまり居らず、若いカップルが1組でした。Now、ようやく念願の風景を拝めます!

 

レインボーブリッジ撮影ポイントから奥大井湖上駅を走る鉄道を激写

雲一つない晴天! ついに画面越しでしかみていなかった景色との邂逅です!

12月上旬の14:00頃なのでまだ太陽は上の方にあります。紅葉も若干残ってはいますが、やはりほとんどが枯れてしまっていて緑の部分が多かったのは少々残念。

それにしても見てくださいよこの風景。最高じゃないですか? 都会じゃ絶対にみられない大自然の景色が眼前に広がるのは圧巻です。日頃の疲れなどキレイさっぱり無くなりますね!

奥大井湖上駅は真ん中の島の先っぽに。陸を囲む形で川が流れる風景はそれなりにあるんですよ。For example,、以前ラスベガスに行ったときにホースシューベンドという観光地に行ったのですが、そこもこういった地形でした。

However、鉄道駅が川と陸地を両断しているような風景は世界中みてもここだけなんじゃないかと思いますね。

 

奥大井湖上駅に鉄道が到着

待つこと15分。汽笛とともに汽車が入ってきました。近づいてくると遠くから音が鳴ります。現地にいないと分からないと思いますが、こういう遠くの方から徐々に音が近づいてくる感じも良いですよね。

かなり陽が落ちてきています。冬なので日没が早い。ちょうど鉄橋の右側を走っているところです。二両編成と小さいですね。

ついに湖上駅に電車が停車。この時何人か降りたようで、電車が過ぎ去った後に鉄橋を渡っている人がちらほら見えました。この電車が終点まで行った後にすぐ折り返してくれます。さすがにこの展望ポイントまで往復できる時間は無いと思いますが。

停車中を激写。二両編成化と思ったら、4両編成だったんですね。大井川鐡道はアブト式を採用しておりまして、急勾配を上るための特殊な方式を採用しているんです。スイスアルプスとかでも使われているんですが、国内だとここの一ヵ所だけのようです。

写真右側の最後尾にあるのは電気蒸気機関で車両を押すための特殊車両。急勾配を上りきるための色んな工夫があるわけです。

数分停車した後に出発。もし左から右側に鉄道が抜けていく様子を見たい場合はこの場所で15分ほど待てば見られます。Except、今回は少し急いでいるので帰ります。やっぱり絵になるのは上流側に向かう方だと思いますので私は満足です。

さようなら大井川鉄道。今度機会があったらこの電車に乗って再訪したいですね! 次回は寸又峡温泉の紹介です。

Certified by Guinness! The world's longest wooden pedestrian bridge "Hōrai Bridge" is also a sacred place of Yuru Camp△

I wanted to go to Sumata Gorge Onsen, which I had wanted to go to for a while.、So I decided to visit some interesting sightseeing spots along the way.。Since it's local, it was just within reach for a day trip.、It's a great opportunity, so accommodation is included.。Actually, I found out after the trip.、It seems that Season 3 of the anime Yuru Camp△ was set along the Oi River, including Sumata Gorge.。There were anime goods at Senzu Station, so I was wondering what it was.、It's an anime based on a manga that will be aired this year.。Unfortunately, I didn't know it was a sacred place, so I didn't have any advance information.、I would like to introduce some of the photos I have taken that I can use.。

 

Walking map ``Positional relationship between Shimada Station and Horai Bridge''

Map of Horai Bridge

Hourai Bridge is within walking distance from Shimada Station。It's about 1.5 km from the station and takes about 20 minutes.、Horai Bridge itself is about 900m long.、The round trip alone is 1.8km.、I think it's better to be prepared to walk quite a bit.。By car, I think most people will come from the Tomei Yoshida Interchange/Shin Tomei Shimada Kanaya Interchange.、It's quite far away and takes about 15-20 minutes.。I think most people use car navigation systems, so、I think there will be no problem if I follow the instructions.。There is also a free parking lot。

By the way、There is a large shopping center called Apita Shimada store just north of Horai Bridge, so you won't have any trouble finding a meal or killing time.。

 

The world's longest wooden pedestrian bridge

Horai Bridge is generally crossed from the north side.。I will be paying the fee at the building on the right.、8If it is before 1:30 p.m. or after 5:00 p.m.、There is a toll box on the bridge, so you must enter it voluntarily when crossing.。

Various stone monuments and bronze statues are erected at the entrance of the bridge.。The one on the right side of the photo above appears to be a Guinness Register mark.。By the way, the length of Horai Bridge is 897.4m, which is said to be a pun on the word ``no evil''.。

Statue of Kaishu Katsu, famous for the bloodless surrender of Edo Castle。This Kaishu is、It was discovered early on that Shizuoka tea had global value.、It is said that Makinohara was cultivated and turned into a large tea plantation.。As it developed to a certain extent, people started crossing the Oigawa River in small boats, and it became dangerous.、It seems that this Horai Bridge was constructed.。

 

Now it's time、Crossing the Horai Bridge

The width of Horai Bridge is not very wide, and about 3 people can fit side by side.。The fare box is in the middle of the photo above.、If you visit outside of business hours, please put 100 yen here (10 yen for children) and cross.。A car is parked on the left、There's a parking lot over there.。

This is what it looks like when you look up from the riverbed。You can see that it is supported by pillars at equal intervals.。When Horai Bridge was first constructed, the piers were made of wood.、Due to repeated flooding of the Oigawa River, it became damaged.、1965It appears that this column was rebuilt with concrete in 2015.。

The sun is strong from the opposite side and it is comfortable.。The duo is just crossing the Horai Bridge.。You can clearly see that the riverbed is well maintained and has become a tourist destination.。

When the weather is nice、You can see Mt. Fuji from the bridge like this.。The fences on both sides of the bridge are low so be careful not to fall.。First of all, let's introduce mainly the Kita-Kamakura area where I started sightseeing.、The river is dry, so if you fall, you will be in big trouble.。

Now that I think about it, the water problem caused by maglev construction has become a hot topic in recent years.、As you can see, the flow of water in the Oigawa River is quite small.。I don't think anyone other than locals knows much about it.、It is a matter of life and death for the region to determine whether or not modifying the upstream will have any impact on the Oigawa River.。

Although the economic effects of the linear system are unknown,、Don't just listen to the news and dumbly criticize the linear opponents、Visit the place yourself、I would like people to understand the current situation of the Oigawa water area before getting involved in linear issues.。

 

Beyond the Horai Bridge

897.4After crossing M, you will see a sign like this。You will also be asked to pay a fee when crossing from this side.。I don't think many people cross from the opposite direction.。

so、Horai Bridge seen from this side。It feels a little lonely compared to the entrance side.。How long is it anyway?。

Kannon-sama at Horai Bridge? It seems like there will be some kind of benefit.。

There was also a Jizo statue.。Looks like a matchmaking Jizo、Many wishing stones were placed。

Crane is a thousand years old、Turtles live forever

Photo frame of tourist spots。It seems to have been created by an architect student at Shimada Kogyo.。It was built just to accommodate the Horai Bridge.。Although the trees are a little in the way、Will it be colorful with young leaves around spring?。

Scenery seen from inside the photo frame。It seems to be beautifully colored during the autumn leaves season.。

Explanation of ``Mugwort'' and ``Akaza'' used in Horai Bridge。both are grass

It is said that if you ring the gold, you will have good luck or not.

This is the bell。It makes quite a loud noise。It's surrounded by nature and there don't seem to be any private houses, so it's probably a good idea to hit it as hard as you can.。

Longevity prayer bell。I mentioned that the length of Horai Bridge is a pun on the word ``no misfortune''.、Since it is made of a long wooden tree, it is also called the ``Long Wooden Bridge'' and ``Long Life Bridge'', meaning it is said to have the benefit of longevity.。Ah、Is that why there was a statue of a turtle that lived forever?。

 

That's the end of Horai Bridge sightseeing.。Before I visited, I thought it was just a bridge, so I thought the sightseeing time would last about 15 minutes.、It takes quite a while to cross the bridge, so it might be a good idea to spend at least an hour watching it.。

When I visited, I didn't know that it was the setting for an anime called Yuru Camp△.、Apparently Sumata Gorge in the work、It seems that it was introduced as a set with Oigawa.。This is also the sightseeing route for this time.、Perhaps all sightseeing routes have the same idea.。

next time、I would like to introduce Okuoi Lake Station!
