Waterfall Climbing in Hanno

20150518-_1080403

For an off-the-beaten-path summer activity, head out to Saitama to the foothills above the bedroom community of Hanno and discover not only beautiful waterfalls, but waterfalls you can climb. Well, perhaps with some experience or an experienced guide who can anchor a rope for you while you scale waterfalls between 3 and 15 meters high. If hiking in the water is not for you, trails also run alongside the streams and canyons giving you views of the beautiful waterfalls from a dry location. Hanno is a little over an hour’s drive from western Tokyo and is the starting point for a dozen great hikes, from a few hours to a few days.
