Tokyo's best mountain hikes: Mt Nabewari

Mt Nabewari doesn't get its name on to any best-of lists, but it's a beautiful hike nonetheless. 1,273 metres in height, at its peak you’ll find (what else?) Nabewari Sanso, a mountain hut that offers climbers a tasty and particularly popular nabeyaki udon. The mountain itself is heavily wooded, making for a pleasant walking environment throughout the year, whether you're a fan of nabeyaki udon or not.

To reach Mt Nabewari, take the Odakyu Line to Shibusawa Station. From there, board the Kanagawa Chuo Kotsu Bus Shibusawa 02 and get off at Okura. It’s about a three hour walk from there to the peak: just follow the signs that lead from Okura to the Nishiyama woodland path and then to Futamata – the entrance to the Mt Nabewari climbing trail. From Futamata, you’ll come out along a ridge – head for Ushirozawa Nokkoshi and on to the summit.
