Rich Nature in Tokyo: A Broad View from Mt. Hinode

View from Mt. Hinode. Hight: 902m

If you are tired of the crowd of central Tokyo, why not take a day trip to Okutama area?

Mt. Takao is already famous since it is introduced by the Michelin Travel (if I’m not wrong) but Mt. Mitake and Mt. Hinode is less untouched by tourists so it is not that crowded.

I went both on the same day and the whole adventure took 5h30. I am not familiar to trekking/hiking/climbing mountains but thanks to my buddy, I made it and enjoyed a breathtaking view from the peak. You do not need any special gears for mountains but nice shoes that well grab the ground is a must. If you have a pair of walking poles, it will help you very much.

What you can see from the top is the two different pictures of Tokyo: in a distance, the city part (the buildings of Tokyo and its neighbors); quite close, the nature part (the mountains).



Unfortunately, there is little information in English on the internet about how to get to Mt. Hinode.

Follow the guide till Mt. Mitake or Mitake Shrine. Then this map may help you.
This page is in Japanese but the images may help finding out your way.
