If you make it to the top of Mt. Mitake, we recommend that you challenge yourself to trek up this mountain. Mt. Odake is known as one of the top 200 mountains in Japan. There are various courses to the top that you can choose from, depending on your experience and fitness levels. On sunny days, you can see Mt. Fuji and other beautiful mountains from the top of Mt. Odake. When you walk back down to the bottom, opt for the route that takes you through the rock garden, passing a waterfall and interesting rocks along the way. It’s about two hours from the center of Tokyo to Mt. Odake’s nearest station.

    Don't go during winter as it was a very slippery and difficult hike with the snow.
