1-Day Mount Hydrangea Walking &
Firefly Viewing Tour
Best season: mid-June ~ early July
This area, which is called Nishitama, is a neighborhood located to the west of the metropolitan area in Tokyo. There are mountains, rivers, good old Japanese culture and sound of nature instead of crowds, skyscrapers and bustle of a city. It's a part of a national park.
In such surroundings, people and nature coexist in harmony.
1. Mount Hydrangea
10,000 of the flowers at Mount Minamisawa Hydrangea has been planted and cared by Mr. Minamisawa for over a half century. A variety of colorful flower heads can be seen in the mountain during the season.
2. Bath Foot in Hot Spring
Awarded one of the best hot springs, "Seotonoyu" hot spring is good for your skin as it contains highly alkaline.
Bathing foot in a hot spring gets your whole body warm without taking all your clothes off by promoting blood circulation. There are many nerves in foot as known as a second heart, so you can also expect relaxing and detoxification effects.
3. Dinner at Local Restaurant
The restaurant offers homemade vegetables on a big plate with beautiful decoration. They also serve very local sake brand Kisho.
*We will visit other restaurants when this restaurant is not available.
4. Firefly Viewing
Fireflies, also known as lightning bugs, are barely seen recently in Japan. In today's fast-changing environment, Tokyo is hard to live for wildlife. But we can watch thousands of flashing lights in the air around this area because of the fresh and clean water of rivers.
*Please note that you might not be watching fireflies due to bad weather or any other conditions.
