At the Mitsumineguchi station, Saitama and take the train going to the Nagatoro. You just show out the“Chichibu Free Ticket”, not need purchase ticket. We get off at Nagatoro. 

The entirety of Nagatoro Town is designated as the Prefectural Nagatoro Tamayodo Natural Park, and both banks of the Arakawa River that flows through its center are designated as places of scenic beauty and natural monuments. It can be enjoyed all year round, with seasonal flower, hiking trails, water sports, and numerous interactive activities.

On the Nagatoro station, walk to west, we are pass a large variety of eateries and gift shops. Because of 1 day trip, we are not stop, walk faster (20 minute) and reach the Mt.

Mt.Hodo, not the highest peak in western Saitama, 497m high, but at the top, you can see of beautiful flowers with the sublime backdrop of the Chichibu Mountains. We get up to the summit by take the ropeway. Ticket fee costs 820 yen for round trip and 410 yen for one way. Use “Chichibu Free Ticket”, get a discount by the costs 740 yen (round trip). The ropeway cars runs at 30 minute intervals (from 09:40 to 17:00) and taking around 5 minute to the summit. The Summit, there are hundreds of different kinds of flower trees with the scenery of the four seasons are infinity.

Honestly, it looks underwhelming because from a distance, they look like dead trees. However it grows many Wintersweet Tree (Roubai in Japanese). These bright of yellow, elegant, small and delicate flowers are everywhere on the mountain. The best time to see the flower is end of Dec to end of Feb.

We are enjoyed on full bloom of Roubai and plum blossoms that signal the coming of spring. Except it, at the summit also have most spectacular views of the across town, over the Arakawa and over to the peaks far off into the distance. The clear skies that Saitama is known for during much of the winter, we are enjoy it by eye, feel and breath in.

Lastly we are buy a specialty of Coca-Cola with design in Saitama (Only can purchase at Saitama, Japan) and traditional souvenir to end our Saitama Trip.

在埼玉县的Mitsumineguchi站乘列车去长瀞町。你只要展出“秩父自由乘车券”就不需要在额外购买列车券。我们在长瀞町站下站。

长瀞町全区不仅被指定为县立长瀞玉淀自然公园区,流经城镇中央的荒川两岸也被指定为名胜及天然纪念物保存地区。除了观梅赏樱的赏花游、休闲户外游和戏水等,这里一年四季都有别致的体验!

我们的计划是看黄金闪闪的腊梅(黄花)。我们去了秩父的着名观光景点,长瀞宝登山。出长瀞町站时往向西走会通过各种小餐馆和礼品店。由于我们是当天来回的行程,一路上我没走走停停又加快脚步大约20分钟后就抵达了长瀞宝登山的底下,宝登山缆车。

宝登山虽不是西部埼玉最高峰,高497米。可是在山顶,您可以看到美丽的花朵,与秩父山的景致。我们搭宝登山缆车上山顶。票价为往返820日元,单程410日元。可是我们展出秩父自由乘车券就可以特价740日元购买往返票。缆车每30分钟一趟(时间09.40 – 1700)到山顶时间大约5分钟。宝登山山顶一带的四季美景变幻无穷及种着上百株的不一样品种的花树。

老实说它看起来不可思议因为从远处看它们看起来像死树。然而它生长许多可爱甜美的黄花(日语称为Roubai)。这些明亮小而娇嫩的黄花在山顶上是随处可见。观赏这些花的时间为12月尾到2月尾。

我们走在开满腊梅花的树下同时也欣赏着梅花意味着春天要来临了。从山顶还可以眺望周边的街景,荒川沿岸,及群山景致。当看到琦玉的冬天大部分时间还是晴朗的天空,我们可以以眼睛,感觉和呼吸去享受它。
