Mt. Nokogiri Hiking Tour from Tokyo-2nd place of Deep Spot Ranking

Tour feature and details

Mt. Nokogiri in Chiba prefecture came off the 2nd place of Deep Spot Ranking in Japan by Nikkei Inc.
It's a little-known but a wonderful place where only a local guide like me can take you, and this is my unique tour. I would like to help you find natural and historical wonders and feel Japanese culture.

I strongly recommend this tour to travelers who like walking in trees, and are interested in a panoramic view and Buddha statues.
From the top of Mt. Nokogiri, we can have a splendid panoramic view of Tokyo Bay and the Boso Peninsula.
There are two big Buddha statues and more than 1500 small Buddha statues in Nihonji temple.
