The walk through the woods to the summit is a great way of escaping the crowds below. It is a nice, covered walk, which can be challenging in places but offer great views.

There are many trails by which to explore the vast forest of the island. We wondered around for a while just enjoying the quiet time away from the crowds.

I'm a strapping, young lad, but been I found some of the hikes challenging. There are lots of stairs..I mean, a LOT. It is still a very cool area. There are shrines all around, and it's painfully gorgeous with countless photo ops along the way.
