Hike Japan

Yesterday I went hiking in the Tanzawa area with a few friends. I love getting some space, fresh air and open vistas. Going to the mountains once in a while is how I stay sane in Tokyo. They aren't far away, and a lot of nice places are easily accessible by train or bus. Here are a few pictures.

If you're interested in hiking Japan, there's much to read on the internet, or you can check out these books on They're also available in a lot of libraries.

  1. Looks like all of you had a great hike. I didn't see any hair dryers though.
