The Oeyama mountain range is known throughout Japan for its monster-slaying legends, and it is also a vast and rich natural environment. There is something fun to do in each season, including hiking with a view of fresh spring greenery or autumn leaves, and skiing in the winter. Because these are the stomping grounds of Japan's greatest "oni," or demon, Shuten Doji, the entrances to Mt. Oe hiking trails have numerous relics related to monsters.
