From Spring to Fall
British and Italian Embassies Villa Memorial Parks along the Chuzenji Lake banks, once crowded as an international summer resort. From Mount Hangetsu, located on the south side, we will see the mountains of Mt. Nikko Shirane, Lake Chuzenji, Hachodejima Peninsula, etc., enjoying a beautiful landscape representing Okunikko. We will start hiking from near the top of Mount Hangetsu and arrive at the observatory after climbing leisurely for about 30 minutes. It is a course which anyone who has little climbing experience can enjoy, as it descends to the shore of Chuzenji Lake. After enjoying the majestic view from the summit, where there is a nostalgic atmosphere, we will enjoy the beautiful nature of Oku Nikko.
