However, the best time to go trekking in Japan is during the summers. The temperature always averages between 24-29℃ during this period. The peak cherry blossom crowd can be avoided and the rains the of the early winter would not have begun.

Best Hiking Trails In Japan

1. Mount Fuji

Undoubtedly the most beautiful and the highest mountain in Japan, Mount Fuji offers the best trekking in Japan for seasoned climbers. The convex active volcano has to be in every adventurer’s list who dreams of conquering the summits of the world. It can be easily reached by frequent buses from Tokyo. As mentioned earlier, the mountain is open for trekking in the summer months between July and September. The official ascending trails of Mount Fuji are:

1) Yoshida trail: The Yoshida trail starts from the Fuji-Subaru 5th line station from the north side of the mountain. It takes about a total of 13 hrs to hike including the descent time from this trial. It is the most sought-after track and so one has to expect some crowd. The pathway is lined with sleeping huts and first aid centers at different toll points. One can expect some rocky and zigzag trails during the ascent.

2) Subashiri trail: This mountain trail starts from the east of the Subashiri 5th station and is one of the beautiful trekking routes in Japan. The ascent takes one through a winding forest area and slippery path with no first aid centers in the line. It takes about 8 hours to reach the summit from this trail.

3) Gotemba trail: The new 5th station from the southeastern side of the mountain makes up the Gotemba trail. It is the least crowded trail among the 4 and lacks public facilities such as restrooms, first aids centers, and huts. The path for the descent diverges from the same path on the gentle slopes.

4) Fujinomiya trail: The trail starts from the highest point in the southern side of the mountain making it relatively a shorter route. People have to follow the same path for both ascending and descending from the summit. The trail is composed of steep rocky slopes prone to injuries.

Duration: 1 day
Difficulty level: Medium to difficult depending upon the trail one chooses.
Cost: INR 4500 per person
Highlights: The mountain trail is famous for its sunrise view.

Tip: Keep the body hydrated.

Suggested Read: Travelers Will Now Have To Pay A Sayonara Tax When Leaving Japan

4. Yarigatake

Image Source

Yarigatake is located in the Kita Alps near Kamikochi and like the climb itself, it is equally difficult to get the place. The hike here is quite crowded because of the various landscapes one comes across that makes all the effort worthwhile. One can come across a stream, hot springs, dam and a lot of greenery before reaching the summit. Sleeping camps are set up for the climbers and the ascent is filled with steep rocky ridges. This beautiful trekking track in Japan is definitely not for the first timers and it is prohibited to continue climbing after dusk.

Duration: 2 days
Difficulty level: Difficult
Cost: INR 7000 per person
Highlights: The hike is only for serious and professional climbers.
Tip: keep out of UV rays and do not try to bullet climb.

5. Mount Nantai

Image Source

Mount Nantai is a sacred mountain to Shinto religion in the Nikko hiking area in Japan that offers an amazing hiking experience. The climb itself is very scenic complete with a set of green landscapes, hot springs, natural lake, and waterfalls. One can come across a shrine at the foot of the mountain dedicated to the very same mountain God and continue ascending the steep climb. The distance between the shrine and the summit is less than 7 km but the climb is quite strenuous because of the rigged mountain rocks. There are other four trails available that can be taken to reach the summit.

Duration: 1 day
Difficulty level: Medium
Cost: INR 300 per person
Highlights: It is a beautiful day hike coupled with a religious tour.
Tip: Carry lots of water

6. Kamakua

Kamakura is a city near Tokyo that is known for its 13 meters tall Buddha bronze statue on top of a hill. The hiking trail to this temple shrine is perfect for a day trip and is one of the great hikes in Japan. There are officially seven hiking trails that lead to the Great Buddha and all the routes take one through the beautiful forest landscapes. It is fairly an easy and a fun hike to reach the miraculous Buddha that survived the tsunami.

Duration: 1 day
Difficulty level: Easy
Cost: INR 300 per person
Highlights: Best option for a cultural and religious tour coupled with some adventure.
Tip: Wear a pair comfortable yet sturdy boots.

7. Shikoku Henro

Image Source

Shikoku Henro is an island with a collection of Shinto temples and shrines. The island that hosts a bit lesser than 100 shrines is unquestionably unattainable in one go. It is more of a pilgrimage route than a hiking path and a perfect example of a hut to hut hiking in Japan. The route is tarred and smooth until some point while the rest takes one through the forest area and steep steps. It takes about a month to complete the trail that runs along the whole circumference of the island.

Duration: 1 month
Difficulty level: Easy
Cost: INR 4000 per day per person
Highlights: One can explore the whole island in one trail.
Tip: Carry bear bells along to keep away from the wild bears in the forest.
