Trail Running to Oku Musashi nature sidewalk
Oku Musashi Nature Trail is a course generally departing from Hanno station, but I recommend a course from Musashiyokote Station.
Because there are few hikers in this trail, you can enjoy quiet and peaceful forests and flowers.
My recommended rental shop for outdoor goods is here.
If you have shoes for trail run, it’s better, but sneakers are ok.
At the summit of Mt. Hiwada you can see a superb mountain view and a lovely shrine.
It is also possible to walk while watching various beautiful flowers depending on the season, and chose a hot spring for the goal.
Why not try escaping the bustle of Tokyo and heal your mind and body with simple trail running?
