Mt. Nantai locates in the Nikko National Park and it is one of 100 Famous Japanese Mountains. Nikko is only 2 hours from Tokyo. Its easy access makes it one of the most popular hikes in the Kanto area.
Mt. Nantai (2,484m) is a secret mountain and it means “man’s body mountain” in Japanese. This hiking is special and cultural because your hike starts with visiting the shrine at the mountain gate and receiving “charm” for your privilege of climbing to the summit. You will find the interesting Japanese culture of Mountain belief through this mountain. With its conical shape, this volcano is a famous landmark of Nikko area. It is steep but well maintained so it is very good to hike up if you like hiking! You can see stunning Lake Chuzenji and the Pacific coast 100 km away from the top on the clear days.
This hike is for intermediate levels but steep (about 1,200m elevation gain). The distance is around 8 km and takes about 6 hours.
If you like to hike and experience Japanese culture this is perfect for you. I am very happy to take you into the richness of nature, easy access from Tokyo! Please contact me!
