Forget the hustle and bustle of the city and get in touch with nature

How about a day hike to refresh yourself?

Day hikes are loved by many people as the best way to soothe the mind and body from the city life. Departing early in the morning, standing on the top of the mountain in the afternoon to enjoy the overwhelming scenery, and returning to the city in the evening to get back to your daily life.

For example, there are many hiking trails around Lake Okutama, which is close to the city center, and in places with good access, such as Mt. Takao.

Day hikes are an ideal option for those who want to escape the stress of everyday life, appreciate the beauty of nature, and spend quality time with their friends. Forget the hustle and bustle of the city, recharge your energy in nature, and go on a day hike to refresh your mind and body.
