A great hike, and stunning views as you go up! Definitely worth it!!
A few tips:
Wear shoes with grip, it is steep and if it has rained/snowed it is slippy!
Wear warm clothes, it gets cold in autumn near the top, and make sure...More
Mt Nantai is located in a fantastic area, next to lake Chuzenji. It isn't a very tall mountain - 2480m - but 3-4 hours are needed probably for going up and 2-3 for going down unless you are really fit and young. Wear proper hiking...More
Get some warm clothes and umbrellas for cold air and sudden shower. It has lots of beautiful nature view and looks very Russia with white birches. Very short bamboo-like plants with tall and so straightly grown old trees. U can see snows still left at...More

Mount Nantai translated means "man's body mountain" and stands at at 2,486 m high. A very prominent landmark and very sacred like neighbouring Mt Nyoho means 'woman's body'. And I think the third sacred mountain is Mount Taro. Very good views.
I'm in Japan for approximately 30 days, April 3-May 3 with my 14 year old daughter. I'll be using the first of our 21 day JR pass to Nikko from Tokyo and staying in Nikko for 2 nights. I want to do some or all of the following (I'm getting the most appropriate Nikko pass): Tosho-gu Shrine, Futarasan, Rinnoji Temple/Shoyoen Garden, Zigzagging Irohazaka Driveway up and down mountains, Lake Chuzenji at the foot of Mt. Nantai, Kegon Waterfall, Nikko National Park, the Tobu World Square and...More
