In order to prevent the spread of coronavirus (COVID-19), various facilities around Tokyo may change their operating days or hours. In addition, some events may be canceled or postponed. Please check official facility or event websites for the latest updates and information.
Mt. Gozen is one of the many mountains in Tokyo's Okutama area. This moderate-level hike takes about five hours from Sakaibashi bus stop, a short 10-minute bus ride from Okutama Station, to the finish at Lake Okutama. (Hiking the trail in reverse is also highly recommended.) At the peak, you can see beautiful views of Lake Okutama to the northwest and Mt. Fuji to the southwest. The mountain is especially pleasant during fall when the trees turn shades of gold and vermillion.
