What you'll do
We will go hiking on the best day hike in the Tokyo area. The mountain of Oyama (大山) has everything. Amazing hiking, stunning views of Mount Fuji and Tokyo, delicious street food, historic temples, waterfalls and more. This is a great secret away from the tourists in Tokyo. Because it is winter and very cold, I can only currently accept guests with proper winter clothes and grippy shoes. The days order in brief: 1. Meet up and catch a bus 2. Climb up the mountain 3. Eat lunch on top 4. Come down and get street food 5. Optional hot springs. 1. We will meet at Isehara Station. It is an easy one train out of Shinjuku, Tokyo. It takes less than one hour and costs only 600 yen. We will meet at Isehara Station and then catch a bus together. 2. Climb the mountain. It is big and steep at 1,252m. However it is customisable and suitable for almost all levels. There is the option of a cable car which goes half way up to 700m. There are easier and harder routes etc. Please let me know your hiking experience and ability and I can adjust it accordingly. 3. We will have a Japanese Bento on top of the mountain. 4. At the bottom of the mountain market stalls sell delicious local street food. 5. There will be the option of a local onsen to finish the day!

But this time I want to take you on my absolute favourite day hike. I love to go trail running! I am the founder of an outer island eco tourism project called islands-of-japan, helping to boost tourism on the poorest and most far flung islands of Japan. I have lived in Japan for 8 years. I am a beer lover, and an apprentice craft beer maker.
Bento! And pocky.
