Hike from Mount Mitake to Okutama

Earlier this week, I went on a hike in the mountains in the western part of Tokyo:

  • First, starting in Mitake (Ome City), I took a funicular up Mount Mitake (929m), in the Chichibu Tama Kai National Park. The summit has a Shinto Shrine.
  • I then walked through the forest in an area called the Rock Garden (actually a trail next to a river)
  • Then I went up Mount Odake (1266m). The summit offers a great view on Mount Fuji.
  • Finally, I went down the mountain via Mount Nokogiri, until I reached Okutama, in Nishitama District, the westernmost area of Tokyo.
