Hello, everyone! (^o^)/
My name is Eiji.
I do nature tour guide at mountainous area in every Summer to give nature experiences and explain animals, plants, geography, climate and so on.
Of course, I got a leader qualification of outdoor activity, and have studied environment, ecosystem, agriculture, forestry and so on at university.
Not only job, but I often do outdoor activities in nature such as trekking and camping while I'm living in Tokyo.
So I'm knowledgeable about Japanese nature.

Here I offer my own planning tours with activities in nature, because I want you to experience Japanese rich nature.

Japanese nature is very rich in the world.
67% of the land is covered with forest.
In addition, more than 90 thousand species of animal and plant live in Japan with huge variety,
and also there are many local original species such as Japanese monkey, Japanese serow, Japanese raccoon dog.

It is believed traditionally that god lives in each outstanding mountain in Japan.
Shrines are built in the area of those mountains, and the land of those mountains has been protected from destruction and development.
This is one of the reasons why Japanese nature is so rich.
You can see plenty of animals and plants when you walk in mountain.

Although Mt.Fuji is very famous to foreign people, there are many other good places to experience the nature.
I would like you to touch the Japanese rich nature very much!

Here this Voyagin site, I offer you only easy hiking 1 day tours from the Central Tokyo, because I want everybody to take part in easily.
They include not only climbing mountain but also visiting enjoyable spots.
If you have basic strength and active mind, why not join my hiking tours?
With a good knowledge of safety management I will guide you safely to experience the wonderful Japanese nature!

Come on and enjoy travel with me,
and a Little Monkey! (^o^)b
