Easygoing Nature Walk in Hakone Tour

Easygoing Nature Walk in Hakone Tour

Hakone is surrounded by steep mountains. A popular tour is hiking in one of the mountains. However, what guests would probably do is to watch their steps most of the time not to fall down or off the trails. Instead, the tour I'm offering is to walk around relatively flat areas so the guests can spend more time to look around to appreciate the nature in Hakone with proper introduction by the guide. As Hakone is in the national park, there are areas where guests are not allowed to approach for the protection of the nature. We will use compact binoculars from time to time during the tour to get clearer views of wild birds or far off spots. Guests will meet wild flowers, insects, or wild birds, some of which are unique in Hakone or Japan, and, if lucky, we may spot wild mammals such as deer, wild boars, raccoon dogs. Hakone never ceases to make me wonder. Let's enjoy the nature in Hakone together!
