My Article on Mountain Huts at Metropolis Magazine
Me and Sonbutsu Sansou's professional mouser.
Hiking, whether in Hokkaido, Nagano, or here in our Kanagawa backyard, has been one of our great pleasures since moving to Japan. What makes it extra special here are the mountain huts - yamagoya and sansou - where hikers can stay before returning home or exploring further into the mountains. Read my recommendations for a few within reasonably easy reach of Tokyo, and then head out to to find some fun!
