Do you want spritual and hiking experience in one day?

Chichibu is famous for the pilgrimage of Buddhism in Japan. Surrounded by low mountains, 34 temples extend to the city. If you want to visit all the temples, it will take 3days. As your guide, I will be able to walk or run with you for 7 or 8 hours in a day including eating lunch and taking Spa! You will refresh yourself after the pilgrimage and long walk.

Meeting Point

What to Expect

We are going to walk through the forest of ceder trees and urban area in Chichibu of Saitama prefecture. One can see japanese life style in rural area, then can feel the atomosphere of japanese buddhist temples. What is interesting to walk in this area would be what each temple has each benefit for pilgrims and each character. Having local dish during spending the day and taking the bath after a long walk are marvelous.
