Description

Welcome to 1 day hiking to Mt. Oyama (1252m) in Tanzawa-Oyama Quasi-National Park.

Mt. Oyama is a sacred mountain and has ancient holy sites such as the Oyama Temple and Oyama Afuri Shrine.
The mountain is very accessible from Tokyo, just 90 minutes travel on Odakyu-line, and it offers a variety of trails with amazing views !
The hike starts with a cable car ride half way up the mountain and from there it is 1 to 1.5 hours to the top. I will guide you along the paths and also explain the history of the temples, shrines and traditional old style shopping streets whilst we trek up and down the summit!
 
From the top of the mountain we can enjoy a beautiful landscape of the entire Kanto Plain and Mt. Fuji. When the air is especially clear, we can even see the far away urban landscape of Metropolitan Tokyo…! For animal lovers there is also the possibility of seeing deers along the way…since there is a deer park nearby.
The hike down will take about 45 minutes and we can get a late lunch upon our return. The restaurants at Mt. Oyama serve fantastic dishes that are made from local ingredients and pure local waters. If you like tofu then you will be in luck as tofu is very famous here – Oyama tofu!
If you are looking for a memorable 1 day hiking trip from Tokyo, I can take you on an unforgettable journey!! In addition to the hiking trip I can also offer optional side trips to other cultural attractions that may be of interest.
Please contact me and I will be very happy to be your guide to Mt. Oyama!
Levels:
For anyone who can comfortably walk on mountain paths for 2 hours or more.
