Join Chiharu, JMGA certified mountain guide, on one of these great hiking programs just outside Tokyo. Enjoy amazing views like that of majestic Mt Fuji!


+1 Day

Jun - Sep




Very close to the huge city of Tokyo, there is a different world. I invite you to go on this hiking program just outside the big city. Join me on a tour around virgin forests, and enjoy a local experience.

On this program, we can aim for different areas, all of which can be planned as 1-day trips. Some of this Mounts are:

  • Tsukuba-san: 877 m (2,900 ft) tall, this Mt is well-known for its two peaks,  Nyotai (877 meters) and Nantai (871 meters). A bit rocky mountain, since it is made of granite and gabbro, while most mountains in Japan are made of lava. This mountain is located on the edge of Kanto Plain (Tokyo area), the largest plain in Japan.

  • Okumusashi hiking. We walk through Satoyama, an area between the mountains and the field, where old villages used to be settled in. On the way, we can see old houses, temples and monuments. At the end, we visit a waterfall and then have a meal in a very traditional Japanese house restaurant with Irori stove! You will definitely enjoy a real Japanese experience on this trip.

  • Mt. Takao hiking. Mt. Takao is situated in Tokyo and it is a beautiful hiking spot, also considered a sacred mountain used for religious training. There are several courses to reach the top (599m),from where you can contemplate a nice view. On the way to the mountain, you also can enjoy lively streets.

For these hikes, I can take groups of between 1 and 6 hikers.

If you are interested in any of these Hiking programs in Tokyo, request your booking! I would love to show you around these amazing places in the near future. Have a look at another program I guide, the Guided hiking tour around Mt Fuji.

Mountain Guide

I was born in Tokyo, Japan, and am a JMGA certified hiking guide with a 10 years guiding experience. I've been assistant guiding for far longer before that both in rock climbing and in ski mountaineering.
I travel a lot myself to mountains outside of Japan and my wish is now to also be able to show the visitors from abroad the beautiful mountains and the culture of Japan. Japan is not just about powder snow. I'd like to share with you my experiences in the Japanese mountains and dive into the rich Japanese culture at the same time.

I also run a travel agency registered in Tokyo so I can organise packaged mountain tours for you! Please contact me if you're interested in getting to know more about our mountains!
