A beautiful region for hiking, just a couple of hours' drive from Tokyo.
Whether you prefer forest walks surrounded by bamboo with whispering clear streams, or rocky barren terrain and great views, this is a lovely region to explore, with a large temple complex in the main town, complete with Pagoda buidings.
And the famous monkies!
There is accessible terrain for children and older adults - best enjoyed during warmer months, as winter can be quite cold in these higher terrains.
