Hiking in Japan - Tokyo Region (Chapter)
This is the Tokyo Region chapter from Lonely Planet's Hiking in Japan guidebook.
Escape Tokyo's urban sprawl via Japan's efficient transport system and take greedy gulps of crisp, fresh air in the nearby mountains and national parks. A little further afield, test your mettle on the sizeable peaks at Nikko, Oze, Karuizawa or the Tanigawa mountains. This chapter shows you how.
- enjoy a 'nature break' in the Takao mountains
- spend a night in one of Japan's best mountain huts
