Nature Walks and Hikes

Jump to last reply

This will be my second trip to Japan. I'm hoping to be in late October to November -- Tokyo and Kyoto for a few days (missed a few things the first time), Nikko, Nara and I'm not sure what else. :)

Last time I went to the Arashiyama bamboo grove and really enjoyed it! I'm looking for more nature walks or hikes. It can be day hikes or longer hikes if accommodations are available nearby. Areas accessible via public transportation are prefered. Will I be in time for the fall foliage?


I poked around japan guide for ideas. :)

-Nikko / Lake Chuzenji
-Kamikochi / Alpine Route / Northern Alps
-Mount Koya
-Kumano Kodo Pilgrimage Trails
-Shikoku Pilgrimage Trail (too urban?)
-Yakushima


Suggestions? Advice?
I realize some of those are out of the way or the timing is near winter closing.
