Mt. Kiyomi (清見岳)

Extra information:

A taxi should cost less than 2000 yen from Satsuma-Imaizumi station (it cost me around 1800 yen). I ended up traversing over the far side of the mountain and walked down toward the lake, where I hitched a ride to Nigatsuden station. It’s much easier to hitch a ride if you made a sign saying Eki (train station). The path on the far side of the summit is well-marked with pink tape and it’ll drop to a forest road. If you turn left you can apparently loop back to where you started the hike, but if you want to go toward the lake then turn right and follow the road and turn left at the next junction and you’ll soon reach route 247. If you want to hitch from Satsuma-Imaizumi station then walk out of the station, turn right, and then another right on route 28 which will take you to Ikeda. The shoulder is narrow here, so make sure you walk up the road for 5 minutes to 田之上商店, a small shop on your right, where there is a wider shoulder here so cars can potentially stop.

You could also combine an ascent of Mt. Kiyomi together with Mt. Kaimon .

If coming by car, then there is a parking space just below the tea fields across from the first torii gate.
