Sasamekura mountain is in southern mountains in Nikko 600m upstream from SPACE riverhouse.  Located about 100m up the steep driveway near the trail head is also a beautiful cafe called Seiryuin Yama Goya Cafe.

On this hike, we only made it to the old gold mine, about 75% of the way to the peak.

Road sign at the entrance on route 149, Seiryuin Yama Goya in the background on the hill.

We left empty handed, no gold... but, we did see some bats in the cave.
