Director Hike Hakone Hachiri


Experience Amazake Teahouse, one of the few remaining of hundreds of teahouses that lined the old Tokaido, Cedar Avenue with towering 400 year-old Japanese cedar patrolling both sides of the trail, and stunning views of Mt Fuji (weather permitting) from Yamanaka Castle Ruins, and more. Hakone Hachiri has been declared a Japan Heritage Area. Allow me to immerse you in the history, culture, and natural heritage of this ancient route. Hike Hakone Hachiri tour involves about 12km (8 miles) walking for the day. Enjoy stunning views of Mt Fuji on clear days, although please note that Japan’s weather only permits this about 30% of the time!
