Need 3-4 hours to visit as bus from bottom of the mountain is NOT frequent. Taxi to go up costs JPY 1000-1200 and bus is around JPY 200 The temple there is huge and need lots of walking but view overlooking the city is gorgeous.

Going up to Mt Yashima is definitely worth it for the view. As we were keen to walk, we followed the directions given in another review from 2014 which was very detailed about how to find the path. If you're keen for a good hike...More
