A fun day out hiking the beautiful Mt Mitake. Cable-car to the start point, waterfalls, gorge, lush forests, autumn colors & more. After arriving at the top of the cable-car 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. Along the way we will take in waterfalls, mountain streams, a mountain village and temple, forests, lookouts and more.

Clear info to get to meeting point. Great trip lead. Yoshi’s vibe made everyone feel relaxed and the group as a whole was great company. We had great weather and the itinerary was a good pace.

The guide Kenji introduced so many cultures concepts related to shrine in Japan, outdoor activity options around Okadama area, and even led us to a sake brewery, fulfilling trip
