Hiking in spring 2008/1/24 14:33
Hi I will be in Japan for 1 week between Nagoya and Tokyo and will probably have a JRP. I'm interested to spend 2-3 days staying in nature where I can hike, but I am not an experience hiker. Not much information on the internet, therefore I am thinking of Fuji Five Lakes area. But I would prefer somewhere quiet and not too crowded.

Does anyone know if the mountains/area around Nagoya is good too? Or will it be too hard to hike and snowing? I don't mind the travel, as there is the JRP.

Thank you all!

Walking course between Magome and Tsumago. It's safe.

The Nakasendo between Magome and Tsumago is really recommended for a one day hike and the access from Nagoya is not too bad with a train to JR Nakatsugawa Station and then the bus to Magome:

This eems to be the website of a foreigners' hiking group based in Nagoya.


There are many hike reports. Could be some tips ...
(I am not connected with them, by the way)

Thank you for your ideas!

What about Fuji Five Lakes? Are there safe and good walks there? I may have 2-3 days so perhaps Kiso may be too small?

Thank you,
