Trekking in Tokyo, 1363.2m Mt. Kawakoriyama, 40m waterfall and Mt.Fuji!
I climbed Mt. Kawakoriyama in the town of Okutama, on the western edge of Tokyo.
The entire town of Okutama belongs to the Chichibu-Tama-Kai National Park.
Okutama town is covered with deep forest, and it is hard to believe that it is in Tokyo.
The summit of the mountain is not so high at 1363.2m, if the weather is good, we can see Mt.Fuji.
You can also enjoy a 360-degree view of the mountains of Okutama Town.
From Kawanoribashi Bridgek
I took a bus from Okutama Station on the JR to Kawanoribashi bridge, takes 15 minutes.
I started trekking from Kawanoribashi Bridge.
From here, I walked along the forest road along the valley.
On the way, you will enter a mountain path and arrive at Hyakuhiro-no-taki Waterfall.
It takes about one and a half hours.
Hyakuhiro waterfall is the largest waterfall in Tokyo with a drop of 40 m.
You can see the ice waterfall on a cold winter days.
From here, you will enter a real mountain path and reach the summit in about 1 hour and 40 minutes.
The 1363.2m summit is open area and has benches.
It’s making a perfect place to take a break and have lunch.
I could see Mt.Fuji clearly and the 360-degree view of the mountains around Okutama was also very beautiful!
After that, I went down the mountain 2 hours to arrive at the next station, Hatonosu Station of JR.
There is a Kumano Shrine near the station where we offered a prayer to the god of the mountain for allowing us to climb.
Why don’t you try trekking in Tokyo?
You can experience another face of Tokyo!
I’m Nobu, one heart enjoy together!!!
