Item description for Day Walks Near Tokyo (Origami Classroom) by Gary D'A Walters...
An hour or so from the frenetic bustle of Tokyo lie some of Japan's most tranquil and scenic spots just waiting to be explored-if you know how to get to them. The 25 walks in this guide have been specially selected for their proximity to the capital and for their unspoilt scenery. All the walks originate from Tokyo, and detailed instructions are provided on how to get to the starting point by public transportation. All walk descriptions are accompanied by precise maps to make sure you won't lose your way. Place names and signs seen along the way are given in both Japanese and English, and points of interest as well as the flora and fauna of each area are described in detail. This guide gives every Tokyo resident a much-needed and easy-to-follow escape route to the serenity of nature.

Reviews - What do customers think about Day Walks Near Tokyo (Origami Classroom)?
Highly recommended for nature lovers! Jul 17, 1998
A great little book that makes it easy to wander the best of the countryside around Tokyo. We used an earlier edition that had 25 daytrips around the city and it tells you how to get there, degree of difficulty, and a suggested route along the way. It also provides details on points of historical and natural interest along each walk.
It's great reading ahead of time, along the way, and afterwards.
