Mt. Kobo is located in Kanagawa prefecture and rises to just 230 meters in height, which is not very high in terms of mountains. It’s famed for its beautiful sakura blossoms in spring, but you can still enjoy nature during summer and fall. There are also three other mountains nearby, so you can enjoy multiple mountain hikes! The area is known as Mt. Kobo Park and its hiking courses are neatly organized so that children can enjoy hiking too. At the base of the mountains is the Tsurumaki Onsen (a hot spring) where you can wash away the sweat and tiredness from your hike. The journey from central Tokyo to Mt. Kobo Park takes around 1.5 hours and the hike about two hours.

    Good for a more relaxing walk as it is not as big a mountain as the rest
