Okutama to Mitakesan via Mount Nokogiri and Mount Odake, Tokyo, Japan
7th of November 2017
Towering forests of cedar and cypress, Mount Fuji views, stunning autumn foliage, waterfalls and a relaxing cable car ride to the bottom of the mountain.
- Location: Okutama and Ome, Tokyo, Japan.
- Start or End: Okutama train station to Mitakesan cable car station.
- Length: 12.0km (7.5mi)
- Grade: Medium to Hard. The paths are well worn but you will need to hopscotch around the plentiful tree roots. It is a bit of a slog uphill from Okutama train station to the first peak of Mount Nokogiri, and then downhill and uphill around the waterfalls and Rock Garden, but much of the remainder is relatively flat. The hike took me 7 hours to complete and would be a bit easier if completed in the opposite direction.
