A recent landslide has blocked the Arakawa trail 2 km from the trailhead. It occured on the morning of Saturday 24/01/10 and has covered the railtrack trail making it impassable.
It is around 20 m wide and 7 m high and will obviously take some time to remove. In the meantime, a temporary path is being created and should be in place mid-February.
The Arakawa trail is the most used route to get to Jomon Sugi but other alternatives are the Kusugawa trail or the Yodogawa trail.
