Japanese famous mountains, want to go at least once Mt. Nantai in Nikko, Tochigi The great view, the historic festival, hot springs with Japanese atmosphere, and the Japanese room
There are a lot of mountains in the world, and a lot of people, who attracted by these mysterious looks and beautiful nature, go to the top of the mountain.
Some mountains are easy to climb for beginners like hiking, but some mountains are hard and dangerous to climb.
It’s same feeling that people want to feel achievement and enjoy the great view there.
Seeing the view from the top, where people made their efforts to go there, is unforgettable.
In Japan, there are a lot of famous mountains, representative Mt. Fuji.
“100 Famous Mountains in Japan”
is a collection of essays about characters, histories, and elevations of 100 mountains written by Kyuya FUKATA, who was a climber and an author.
Since 1964, when it was published, it’s been loved for a lot of people as a classic mountainous literature more than 50 years.
One of them, Mt. Nantai in Nikko City, Tochigi Prefecture is a volcano that is 2,486 meters above the sea.
During the winter season, Mt. Nantai is not able to be climbed, and it’s able to be climbed from the beginning of May to the end of October.
It’s a marvelous contrast between Mt. Nantai and Lake Chuzen-ji under the blue sky.
During this season, Mt. Nantai is covered with beautiful greens and show powerful looks.
During every 7/31 to 8/7, “Mt. Nantai Tohai Kosha Festival” is held that is a festival, succeeding from the Nara Period and having more than 1,200 years of history.
At 0AM on 8/1, several thousands of climbers climb with its opening to see the sunrise from the top.
We recommend a lot of tourist spot near from Mt. Nantai; for example, “Kegon Waterfall” that comes from Lake Chuzen-ji, historic and tasteful Kinugawa Hot Spring and Yunishigawa Hot Spring, and so on.
If you enjoy the hot spring and relax on the futon in the tatami floored Japanese room, you will feel comfortable and heal for next days.
Nikko during the summer season is fulfilled with the very Japanese view and Japanese atmosphere.
