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!!

Mountain Guide

I have enjoyed climbing mountains since I was a high school boy. Since then, I've also lived and worked in the Netherlands for 10 years and in the US for 7 years, where I have enjoyed climbing in the alps and in the Yosemite, and ski mountaineering in the alps.

After my return to Japan, I rediscovered the beauty of Japan's nature and its mountains. I would be very happy to share this with you, not only through climbing, but together with good local sake and food, and some photography under the stars.

I guide through the season, and my favourite mountains are my local mountains that are in Tanzawa area as well as Hakkoda in Aomori, in the North. My passion also includes photography. I will be able to give you lots of tips on mountain photography even if only have smartphone or compact digital cameras.

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
