Kurosawa 3, Nariki 8 MTB trails@uς₯¬Ψv (21.6km, 425m, 1.5hr)
There are some short but interesting trails starting near Monshuuin u·C@vin Kurosawa 3 and Shinmei temple u_Ύ_Πv in Nariki 8. You can join a hike trail that comes out on the old Nariki-kaido that bypasses Fukiage tunnel from the Nariki side - also possible on foot from the Kurosawa side, but not on bicycle. It may also be possible to descend on hike trail to Kurosawa from the Shinmei temple hill climb - not evident without further investigation, and probably only over rough and steep terrain if so. I'll try to check it out by end of 2008.

A Belgian bakery, Konohappan, opened in 2008 along this route near Monshuuin. You can get a soup set or coffee with good bread here. The choice of bread is limited the price is average but the location is very good.
