Japan - Mt Fuji & Around Tokyo (Chapter)
This is the Mt Fuji & Around Tokyo chapter from Lonely Planet’s Japan guidebook.
With ancient sanctuaries, hot springs, mountains and beaches, the region surrounding Tokyo is a natural foil for the dizzying capital. Really, you couldn’t design it any better if you tried. Authentic country ryokan, regional cuisines and cedar-lined trails are all within two hours of central Tokyo, as well as the symbol of Japan itself, alluring Mt Fuji.
