Okumikawa's notable peak Mt. Myojin is written with the character for "god" (jin), which shows that the mountain itself has been worshiped since ancient times. Though it is a small mountain that only has an altitude of 1016 meters, it has strangely shaped rocks and thrilling ridges that have now made it a popular spot for mountain climbing. If you're lucky, you may be able to see Mt. Fuji, Japan's tallest mountain, from the 360-degree viewpoint on the summit. Close to the trail entrance is Chiiwa, which has various interesting natural tunnels, bridges, and caves. The beautiful designs that nature creates are awe-inspiring.
