When you've spent your time in Tokyo, it’s easy to forget that 70 percent of Japan is made of mountains. If you're a nature lover, there are lots of hilly treks and jungle trails to explore.
Here are some of the most beautiful trails in and around Tokyo, a number of which you can even do as a day trip. To help you decide which ones to conquer, we've given each mountain trail a star rating out of five for difficulty, plus information on how to get to the starting point.
The prime season for hiking is autumn, when the temperatures are cooler, the air is dryer, the foliage is a work of art and the views are pristine. However, springtime and early summer is lovely, too: the weather is comfortable for outdoor activities and you'll get to admire seasonal blooms as well.
