​I am just looking for a hill or small mountain....A couple of hours walking

by Zainal

Hi Gary,

I am moderate hiker having hiked in Indonesia, Malaysia, and Scotland. I understand April still has snow on most peaks. ​

​I am just looking for a hill or small mountain maybe to walk up too. A couple of hours walking. My trip is 10 days, Tokyo to Osaka. I just don't want to spend my time in the city.

Thank you.

I recommend Mt. Takao
by: Gary Wolff

​Zainal, while in Tokyo, Mt. Takao, only an hour train ride west of Tokyo, is always a good choice with 6 different trails:

You might also check the schedule for Jambo International and see if there's a Tokyo-area hike you can join while you're in Tokyo:

If neither of those options work for you, I suggest you post your question in Facebook's "Hiking in Japan" group (you'll need to join the group first):

Best wishes...
