    At the end of Satta Pass trail is the parking space. From there the agri-road to Yui station goes down. Turn right to the narrower downslope crossing citrus orchard. It is also a start of the Mt. Hamaishi which is a bit challenging. From there to Yui I will put more vids to my YUI page.

    The view from Satta Pass lookout. It could have been spectacular view only if Mt. Fuji had been visible that day.

    In Japanese, the word "Toge" often translated in English as "Pass" has broad sense not just the point but the path on difficult passage. What we call Satta toge contains the path about 500 meters in length.

    As you can see from this video, a lot of people are taking a rest along Satta Pass Trail. It was shot during winter but around this area it was warm.

    Mt. Fuji should be over the mountains. It is but barely visible and the unusually little snow around the summit area.

    Satta Pass is not just a point. It is the section of the coastal trail above the ocean. It lasts about five to ten minutes.

    Satta Pass Trail starts from the steep climb. But that lasts for no more than five minutes. It is the rare section of the Tokaido which is not paved.

    Satta Pass Trail starts from the graveyard. There is a parking space enough even for a tour bus. Also there are some walking poles. Cool idea. Utsunoya should have the similar system. Luckily I didn't need the pole to climb the trail.

    After walking about few minutes from the monument walking past the temple, I found two blank road signs dividing Jizodo(left) to Tokaido(right). The face of the signs became blank probably because of tire scraping.

    Walking along the Tokaido about a few minutes from the intersection on the previous video, there is a place with a cluster of old monuments. This is the starting point of Minobu Road the pilgrimage trail to Minobusan Kuonji temple the head temple of Nichiren Buddhism. To get to Satta Pass, never turn from there. Go straight ahead.

    To get to Satta Pass, you will be walking about one hour either from Yui or Okitsu station. This video shows how to get to Satta Pass from Okitsu station. From Okitsu station, go along the road that leads to the beach and after getting to the wide road , turn left from there.
