Go running in Tokyo & hiking in nearby Hakone

6 great runs in Tokyo

“I’ve selected these based on the different locations, various terrain, water stops, and ability to combine longer distance! These courses are selected for the least amount of distractions, such as traffic lights and cars, but in doing so, unfortunately avoid some of the beautiful sightseeing places that Tokyo offers.”

Camping at Lake Motosuko

“Unlike many camp grounds Motosuko Camping Ground allows you to pretty much set up your tent and park your car wherever you want to as long as you are not disturbing others. Lots of beautiful sightseeing including Lake Motosuko and Mt. Fuji. You can also rent paddle boats and I hear the fishing is rather good as well.”
