Mt Mitake Hike

Next Trip: Jun 26, 2022


Mt Mitake is a beautiful hiking location near Okutama in western Tokyo. It constantly amazes that such a stunning natural environment can be accessible so easily from Tokyo metro! For this trip we will meet at Mitake station and catch the local bus (10min) to the bottom of the cable car. We will board the cable car (round trip tickets included) which steeply ascends to the start point of our hike. After arriving at the top and taking in the great views, we will begin the hike. We will be taking the rock garden trail which is around 3 to 4hrs in total. It is an easy hike, although there are a few steep sections and also an optional climbing section with ropes and chains. Along the way we will take in waterfalls, mountain streams, a mountain village, temple, forests, lookouts and more.

After the hike, we will ride the cable car and local bus back to Mitake. From there, we can finish up the day with some sake tasting at the beautiful, local riverside sake brewery or visit a local hot spring. Looking forward to a fun day out hiking!

I really liked it. It was so nice making new friends and enjoying the moments in nature. Kaiji San was also really responsible of leading the group in the best way.

An absolutely breathtaking vista with a gorgeous shrine dedicated to man’s best friend. I highly recommend making the trek at least once.
