Aokigahara Forest

Hiking in Sai-ko

Aokigahara's expanse of forest stretches from just beyond the southern shore of Sai-ko up to the Mt Fuji treeline, with lots of opportunities for hiking – though stick to the established trails, as you could easily get lost amid what is aptly called the 'Sea of Trees'. An easy jaunt is the marked 3km trail between Sai-ko Kōmoriana and Fugaku Fuketsu.
