Okutama station to Mitake hike. This one is an intense 5 hours. If you don't have long legs do the reverse, you can take a cable car up the mountain. But if you do Okutama to Mitake, you can end closer to the Sawanoi sake brewery.

I had plans to go to this remote kakigori (shaved ice) spot in Chichibu. Sure enough, the night before it was featured on a prime-time food show as the #1 spot in Saitama. Lines ensued.

Uniquely qualified in this country (you ought to post a link). Hope she's the owner: I have no issue with someone exploiting themselves, not others
