Okutama to Mitakesan via Mount Nokogiri and Mount Odake

Tokyo, Japan

The Facts

  • Start or End: I started at Okutama train station (Google Map Directions) and finished at the Mitakesan cable car station (Google Map Directions).
  • Length: 12.0 km (7.5mi) in about 7hr
  • 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.
  • Date Walked: 7th of November 2017
