Sasamekura mountain is in southern mountains in Nikko 600m upstream from SPACE riverhouse.  Located about 100m up the steep driveway near the trail head is also a beautiful cafe called Seiryuin Yama Goya Cafe.

On this hike, we only made it to the old gold mine, about 75% of the way to the peak.

We left empty handed, no gold… but, we did see some bats in the cave.
