1-Day Historical Road Hiking Tour

Best season: April ~ November

This area, which is called Nishitama, is a neighborhood located to the west of the metropolitan area in Tokyo. There are mountains, rivers, good old Japanese culture and sound of nature instead of crowds, skyscrapers and bustle of a city. It's a part of a national park.
In such surroundings, people and nature coexist in harmony.

1. Okutama Historical Road

There are several shrines, scenic spots and statues of douso-shins along this trail. A douso-shin (also referred to as douso-jin) is a deity on roadsides which is believed as a traveler's guardian deity.

You will enjoy hiking and seeing a good old Japan on the 9 km trail, taking about 5 hours to the final destination of the trip, the Lake Okutama. Let's check out some remarkable sites.
