YOUR HOST

Yukio MURAMATSU

Hello, my name is Yukio Muramatsu. From the time I was about 13, I loved to hike. My enthusiasm for the sport has not diminished, and on the weekends I enjoy hiking up a mountain to see the stars. When visitors to Japan can only think of Mt. Fuji so far as Japanese mountains go, well I find that to be a bit of a shame; there are so many beautiful mountains in this country. To be honest, I think there is a lack of information about mountains. Mt. Fuji is not the only mountain in Japan! Japan has many spectacular mountains to climb, and I would like to introduce these mountains to you and guide you through them. I have had the opportunity to travel abroad extensively for 10 years, so if you are looking for an English guide, I will be more than happy to recommend some good mountains and accompany you on a day hike to one of the mountains in Japan.

WHAT TO EXPECT

When you think of mountains and hiking in Japan, what mountains can you think of? The iconic Mt. Fuji often comes up to mind, but are there any other mountains in Japan? Indeed there are. In fact there are many spectacular mountains in Japan! This tour will take you up Mount Ōyama in Kanagawa Prefecture. Located just one hour from Tokyo’s Shinjuku station, it’s perfect for a day-trip hike. If you love the outdoors and enjoy hiking and mountain climbing, then Mr. Muramatsu is a top-tier expert. Through him, you will be able to see a different Japan, a beautiful Japan that you may have never thought about. Anyone who is healthy, and has enough energy to hike up a mountain for about 5 to 6 hours, will be able to join Mr. Muramatsu's tour. However, if you do get tired, you can use the cable car on the way back. If you are worried about your Japanese, no worries! He has 10 years of overseas experience and can speak English.
