Togenochaya is a reproduction of the tea house visited by Natsume Soseki in Kusamakura and now has exhibits for perusal by visitors. Through the large torii gate is a steep trail up the mountain called "Sarusuberi," which means "monkey slide" in Japanese. Give it a shot if you're up for a challenge!
