Driving to Kijimadaira

For day trippers, the easiest way to get there is via car. The Kijimadaira phone number for GPS navigation is 0269 82 3434, but be aware that your GPS may try to take you over the top of the mountain on a summer-only road.

There is a car park at the base as well as the Chuo (centre) car park further up a steep windy road.

Otherwise a really easy way to travel to Kijimadaira is if you’re on a multi-resort tour and have a guide to drive you there.
