Satta Toge Pass

A view of Mount Fuji unchanged in centuries

Peter Sidell   - 1 min read

Between Okitsu and Yui stations on the outskirts of Shizuoka City, the Satta Toge pass is a trail up over a large hill overlooking the coast, made famous in an Ukiyo-e woodblock print by Hiroshige. It commands an impressive view of Mount Fuji from a number of vantage points along the walk, and on clear evenings you'll see plenty of amateur photographers training their cameras on the mountain as dusk settles over it.
